Butterflies and bees

The challenge this time at Retro Rubber is a sketch.

RRCB 59

For my take on it, I masked off the right hand side of the card to leave just the "diagonal" area.


Then I stamped the butterflies and bees - these are unmounted stamps that I got in grab bags when I first started stamping, so they must be around 20 years old - and sponged light blue ink around them before removing the masking and adding the sentiment. This stamp is a positively youthful three year old Dovecraft one. I'd have liked it to say "bee"cause but that wasn't to "bee".

  4. What a great card using the sketch! I wouldn't have thought of masking the layer to create it. I'm impressed that your 20 year old stamps are still around and stamping great!! Thanks for playing along with Retro Rubber and hope you will be back in our gallery soon.
