Car of My Past


Hello! 2 Cards! 1 Stamp!  I used Repeat Impressions Corvette stamp (bought in 2014) with different inks and techniques. The top card was stamped and inked with Distress Oxide ink and embossed with clear EP to give a shiny texture.  Added accents with Metallic Silver and Markers.  Finished with Pattern Paper and a Oyster Pearl card base. The car on the second one was stamped with Memento Toffee Crunch ink on white CS and placed on an argyle pattern paper and an ecru card base.
Challenges:
The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes Challenge S2717
Retro Rubber Challenge: #72 Hit the road Jack! Use any mode of transportation on your card and at least one old stamp.  I have had the Corvette stamp at least since 2014.
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge: October Anything Goes with Patterned Paper

In the late 70's-early 80's , we had a Corvette the color of  butterscotch with white leather interior.   This stamp reminds me of that fun car.







Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

Great CAS masculine cards, which are difficult to do!! I love your images and show how you can change up a stamp to create very different cards. Thank you for playing with us at Retro Rubber and hope you will play with us again soon.

Two great cards! I like the colours you've chosen to use. They've got a kind of nostalgic feel to them. My favourite is the first one. Thanks so much for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
