RRCB138 Country Best Wishes

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Wow, can you believe it's the last day of June!  July, here we come!  But first, it's time for another Retro Rubber challenge:

Image may contain: text

Anything goes!  Well, that means it's wide open, just as long as your stamps are at least a year old!  I went country/vintage today with a stamp from 2010 called Countryside:

I stamped my images on Very Vanilla cardstock in Stazon Black ink and colored them in with an aquapainter and inks.  I just want to give you all a BIG WARNING/HINT if you purchase the new SU Water Painters....they are very similar to the Aquapainters, (and a great product, of course) but the top portion of the brush that screws off to fill the barrel is is the opposite of the way the Aquapainter opens.  I almost broke my hand trying to get it to open, and finally had to call SU.  DUH....all I had to do was turn it in the opposite direction. What genius designed that?  Anyway, just a heads-up if you decide to invest in a new forewarned, LOL!  So after coloring all my little pictures in, I over-stamped the images with the Linen background stamp (2006) with Sahara Sand ink, diecut them with some tag dies and sponged around the edges for a more vintage look:

I gave each one a little Linen Thread doodad, mounted it on some red barnwood DSP and added a diecut sentiment (oops, not a year old) along with some candy dots, then stamped the inside with another sentiment and the truck from the Countryside set:

I hope you'll play along with our Anything Goes challenge...just remember your stamps have to be a year old or older, and be sure to tell us how old they are!  We can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for popping in--enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is wonderful, you did an amazing job with those tags, they really do look like pieces of Linen! The whole card is fantastic, really looks like a barn door. Clairex
