Happy Tuesday, peeps! It's time for another Retro Rubber Challenge, and we have a tic-tac-toe for you:
I must confess.....you know how it is when you have a project that you really don't care for, but you've invested so much time in it, you just keep persevering? Yeah...that's my project today! I love the sketch, I love the embossing, I love the set...I just don't love it all together! But anyway, here it is:
For my tic-tac-toe, I chose the diagonal of blue, birthday and texture embossing. I had originally intended to use SU's embossing paste, but it had totally dried up in the jar....it was almost empty, but I think it should have stayed fresher a little longer! But I did find some amazing metallic embossing paste I picked up at a yard sale somewhere, and I love the look of it:
So, the beginning of my dilemma was thinking that the embossing paste was COPPER....no, it was gold, as I discovered after I had already stamped, embossed and cut out my "yee haw" sentiment from the 2004 Yee Haw set in copper ink and copper embossing powder on some faded denim paper:
Yeah, it doesn't quite match the gold embossing! Boo hoo. But I already spent a lot of time on it, so I kept going, embossing a Paper Pumpkin sentiment on the dark blue denim paper:
So all in all, it doesn't look too bad, and I am sure the guy who receives it will have no clue that the metallics don't match, LOL! Be sure to check out what the DT created...a wee bit better than mine, and I am sure your creation will be fabulous!! Just make sure you use stamps at least a year old and tell us how old they are! Can't wait to see what you create...share it with us at the Retro Rubber blog!!
We had a snow day yesterday, and I think it was the most perfect day for sledding ever! It wasn't real cold, the snow fell lightly all day and it was awesome for sledding!
Don't worry, I didn't let them go out into the road, but we did land in the creek (and up the tree and into the bench) a few times, LOL! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
