Sketch time at Retro Rubber Blog

It is time for another fun challenge at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and this time around it is a sweet sketch done by Claire.  Please stop by the blog and check out all the wonderful makes by the design team and leave a little commenting love while you are at it!   

My take on the sketch is clean and simple.  I am glad my creative mojo showed up because I had a hard time getting started, but now I am really pleased with the outcome.

Step One:
Stamp Unity Stamp Company’s “Love Brings You Home” (Jan, 2015) world map on blue cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black.  Back with black cardstock and adhere to a Kraft card base.

Step Two:
Stamp sentiment from the same set on Kraft cardstock and trim to fit card front.  Adhere to card front.

Step Three:
Die cut Quickutz heart from black and red cardstock.  Tie small bow from Darice Hemp Cord.  Adhere heart with dimensional foam adhesive and adhere hemp bow with wet dries clear adhesive.

Do create your own mini master piece using this sketch as a template and come share it with us over at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge.

Imagine:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Unity Stamp Company:  Love Brings You Home
