Hi peeps! Two posts in one day, can you believe it?! Today is special because the girls at Retro Rubber have asked me to be a guest designer! Woohoo! I love using my "retro" stuff! This week they have a sketch for you:
Since we have finally been having such lovely spring weather, I chose some Close to My Heart papers called Skylark (probably two years old....I've been hoarding it!) and a set from Pink Paislee that I have had for over a year, featuring all kinds of vintage ephemera to celebrate! Can you tell which is stamped, and which is printed on the paper?!
It's hard to tell, isn't it?! Most of the words on the paper are printed on, but I did stamp a couple word images in Sahara Sand near the bird, as well as the words "Wonderful & Kind, Shine, and Smile as the bottom:
I also diecut some leaves (My Favorite Things) from the same DSP collection and adhered them to the branch, and the "hello" is from SU's Greetings thinlets, using Early Espresso cardstock. I cut a couple of banners from scraps of DSP, and added a ruffle of ribbon (retired SU) and it was done! I love this sketch...it is open to all kinds of creative interpretation! I sure hope you'll play along! You can see all the samples at the Retro Rubber blog!
We made some cupcakes yesterday...of course, decorating them is the best part! She did very well spreading the icing on:
Well, come to think of it, maybe eating them is the best part!
Enjoy your day!
