Retrorubber Challenge #65 Meets Nuvo Glitter Markers

Today I'm entering a sketch challenge at Retro Rubber Challenge where they love the use of older stamps.

One of the requirements of the Retrorubber Challenge is to use a stamp that is older than one year so I took out one of my all time favorite background stamps by Close to My Heart called Garden Tapestry.  This stamp is probably 20 or more years old and still a delight to use.  One of the nice things about red rubber stamps is that you can color them with water based markers.  I tried out my latest purchase of Nuvo Glitter Markers and love the sparkle they create without any mess.  I purchased these at Technique Junkies who shipped them right away.

Products used:
     Garden Tapestry stamp--retired Close to My Heart
     Say it in Style--retired Close to My Heart
     White Daisy CS
     Nuvo Glitter Markers
     Foam Tape

Challenges entered:
      Retro Rubber Sketch Challenge #65
         Simon Says Wednesday Challenge--Anything  
      The House That Stamps Built--Anything Goes
      Through the Craft Room Door--Anything Goes
      A Bit More Time to Craft--Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!

  1. That's a lovely colour combination. I like that you've put the emphasis on the bottom section of the sketch. Colouring the stamp with markers is such a lovely technique and you can never be quite certain of the result and a bit of serendipity is a good way to pep things up. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber.
