Retro Rubber Challenge

Hello Stampers!  Happy Friday! Can't believe it's already June 2!

I played along with new blog challenge, it's called Retro Rubber Challenge and they feature stamp sets that are older than a year!  Yay, great way for me to use my retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets. Looking forward to playing along with them again. Their current challenge is a color challenge of using lime green/yellow, purple and blue.  Not gonna lie, at first I was a bit scared of the colors because I wasn't sure what colors to put together or how they were going to go together.

The stamp set I used is called "Happy Watercolor" and it was featured in the 2014 Stampin' Up!  Occasions catalog. Glad I never got rid of it, some sets just become part of your permanent collection, know what I mean? Below are all the images from the stamp set.

The colors I used on my card are Elegant Eggplant (purple), Marina Mist (blue), Crushed Curry (yellow), Lemon Lime Twist (lime green). My card base is Whisper White and I also used Watercolor Paper. I'm having fun using watercolor paper.

I also played along with sketch challenge 647 over at Splitcoaststampers, which worked great with the colors, no? I liked the sketch so much, I created another card with it in mind, which I'll post later. The cool thing about this sketch, there is no deadline to play along, awesome, right!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you have an awesome day. Until next time.
