I kept using my plaid paper and two more challenges to make another valentine card.
I was happy to find the Retro Rubber Stamp Challenge because it encourages us to use our older stamps. Each card must use a stamp that is at least a year old. I started stamping in 2008. I did not keep some of my oldest wood mount sets, but most of my stamps are over a year old.
For this card, I am using two older stamps from Lawn Fawn. I love the font and mix of greetings in the Happy Everything set. The set was released in 2012, so I estimate that I purchased it in 2012 or 2013. I think that I purchased the Year 5 stamp set when it was released in 2015 because I think that both river and sea otters are so cute. For this card, I wanted to color it gray using my sole gray (C05) Copic marker and the colorless blender.
I was still playing with my card design until I found Freshly Made Sketches #471 to tie the card elements together.
