Okay, friends... I had something made with all new supplies I was going to share today, but decided instead to play along in the Retro Rubber Challenge with all old supplies. I'm partial to this challenge because it encourages us to love on the oldies, plus it runs for two weeks which gives me more time to get a card made. The current challenge is "Anything Goes" -- with stamps that are a year or more old. Before I bend your ears (eyes) further I'll show you the card:
The stamps are years old. Not sure how many years, but a lot. The lovely Charlotte is a Loralie stamp, all of which went out of production not long after I fell in love with them. You can still search and find a few online. My 7 sets will have to suffice. They've survived multiple stamp room purges as I enjoy looking at them even when I'm not stamping with them.
Charlotte was colored with Copic markers on Neenah 110 lb white. I left all white in the background because Charlotte is such a colorful character and this card could easily get too busy. She's so fun to dress! Makes me feel like stepping up my wardrobe. I don't color people stamps very often, but just look how pretty and fun she is! I gave her red hair in honor of the late Lucille Ball whose quote I used. There are a few details I added, such as eyelashes on Charlotte and her cat, claws on the cat, polka dots on Charlotte's blouse.
She's standing on a wood floor courtesy of Penny Black Wood Floors die. It's not so old, but it's a first time use, so hooray for that!
Thank you, Retro Rubber, for prompting me to blow the dust off an old favorite, and thank you, my stamping friends, for stopping in and for always indulging these whims that take hold of me. Have a beautiful day!
