RRCB102 Black and White

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  The Retro Rubber Challenge is back for the new year!  Here is our first challenge of 2019 for you; are you ready to dust off those older stamps?  Here ya go:

No photo description available.

I need several birthday cards this month, so I pulled out a set from 2012 called Storybook Friends, and simply stamped the bunny in black:

I did use some new DSP; this is from the Botanical Butterfly line, which is a SAB freebie! I love these little polka dots! To keep the black and white polka-dotted theme, I added some washi tape, and a birthday sentiment with some faceted gems as an embellishment:

I layered two square Basic Black scalloped squares together to create a mat for my white panel, then mounted it on a another black layer that was diecut with some curved scalloped dies:

My final addition was some dotted ribbon and a few diecut stars!  I was itching to color this little bunny in, but I kept it plain for the challenge!  I hope you'll play with our challenge this year!  Remember, your stamps must be at least a year old, tell us how old they are, then share your creation with us at the Retro Rubber blog!

A little trip to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ!:

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

You've made me a happy girl with your plethora of polka dots! This is adorable...and so is Cassidy!

I definitely would not have thought of black and white for a cute little bunny - but you made it all work with the stars, polka dots, fun mesh ribbon - it's charming!!

Ohh!! Love, love all the different ways you added dots to this adorable card, the bunny looks extra sweet with it's Fairy wand.

Your bunny is very sweet, especially surrounded by all the various polka dots. Black and white is very striking but I know what you mean about the urge for just a bit of a colour...

Neva Cole said...

What a great layered card with just the black and white theme. The polka dots are a sweet addition for this cute image!

LeAnne, sorry for the late visit, last week at work was painful LOL. I love your card, all the wonderful details, I think that ribbon is amazing, reminds me of my wedding veil. Also I took my Mum to the Aquarium in Camden last year!! We had such a great day out, we were staying in Philly and took the boat across. Cx

What an adorable card! That sweet bunny pairs so perfectly with the polka dot and the bitty stars.
