RRCB88 Anything Goes

Hi peeps!  Tuesday brings another Retro Rubber Challenge, and this week, it's Anything Goes!  Just make sure you use stamps that are least one year old and be sure to tell us how old they are!!

For my card today, I pulled out a pretty set from 2006 called Beautiful Beach, and did some watercoloring, embossing and fussy-cutting!

I did some loose watercoloring on a piece of SU Watercolor paper with Soft Sky and Crumb Cake inks, then stamped my images in Crumb Cake after the paper dried, and fussy-cut them out.  I inked up the inside of the Seaside embossing folder, inserted another piece of Very Vanilla and ran it through the Big Shot, which transferred the ink to the debossed side.  I stamped the line of shells right under the  main panel, added a sentiment from the same set in Early Espresso inside and out,

and finished it off with some sequins and linen thread.  And here's the inside:

I also used the sketch from In(k)spire Me:

Okay, so the field is wide open...use any stamps over a year old!  Can't wait to see what you create!  Share it with us at Retro Rubber this week!

Homemade cookies always bring a smile!

Another great card! I love anything to do with shells. I used to collect them before we moved to Florida :-) Cookie, cookie, give me some! Have a blessed day. We are off to the oncologist.
