My card today is for a wonderful new challenge blog called Retro Rubber Challenge Blog brought to you by some fun and creative!! blogland friends. Please consider joining this "far out" group!! : )
For this challenge we are asked to use our oldest stamp. These groovy pair of jeans are definitely one of my oldest images. It was included in a stamp set by The Angel Company. The Angel Company introduced me to unmounted stamps and I never looked back! : ) sadly this company is no longer in business but I still enjoy many OLD stamps from my early paper crafting days.
I wanted to make a CAS card so I selected my favorite white cs from Papertrey Ink and stamped my image directly on the card face. I added a hint of color to the jeans and also some ink splatters for a little added color. Finally I added some flower brads that, in the paper craft hobby, are now a bit retro too! : ) The sentiment was a gift from a friend a few years ago that I have never used so therefore it qualifies as NBUS : ) Unfortunately I immediately transferred the image to my stamp storage when I got it and failed to note the manufacturer so I can't say where this sentiment is from.
Thank you, Jane and Katie for introducing this fun challenge blog. I look forward to many more fun and inspiring challenges from you and your talented DT!
If you have some "never before used stuff" please check out blogland's talented and entertaining friend, Darnell, to learn more about NBUS : ) You'll be left giggling all day long!
