It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge and celebrates colors of the 60s.  We need to use three of these colors – bright orange, green, pink, purple or yellow.

RRCB 179

Both the sentiment and image are from Art Impressions Golden Oldies and are from 1996.  It’s hard to believe I have had them that long.  I stamped up the Eunice image and colored in with my alcohol markers.  I die cut around Eunice and a piece of granny apple green.

I stamped the sentiment and then cut a piece of pumpkin pie to back it.  I adhered everything to the crumbcake card base and added a bit of bling to finish off the card.

Best Fishes For AYSI...

It’s a new year and a new challenge at As You See It!  A lovely sketch challenge to kick off the year!

#266 1.14.2022

I started by die cutting two triangles, one in white and one in pattern paper.  I cut the base down to make a 4 X 4 card to create a cozier looking card.

I stamped the jar, fish, ribbon and sentiment and then die cut and adhered together.  I used a bit of pool party for the water in the jar.  I popped the jar and sentiment up and added some clear dots to look like bubbles.  I quite like how it all came together.
