Do you remember the 90’s? Life was busy in the 90’s. I took a trip with my childhood friend to Florida, bought my first car, got married, had children and several pets, bought a house and worked at my job. I am sure there were more things that happened in the 90’s, but those are highlights. You are wondering why I am taking a trip down memory lane…Well, I am the guest designer for the Retro Rubber Challenge and the theme is the 90’s!
You see it is a color challenge, so dig out those retro colors and give this challenge a try!
I chose Mimi going Extreme with her snowboarding. The stamp set is named Extreme Mimi. She is a wood block stamp with a date of 2012. The embossed background is from Stampin Up Scattered Sequins; it reminds me of snowflakes. I used Gina K/Thermoweb Stitched Ovals dies. To color Mimi, many waterbased markers came out of hiding: Island Indigo, Lost Lagoon, Pretty Peacock, Baked Brown Sugar, Ruby Red, Terracotta Tile (all retired), then I used alcohol markers for her face: Spectrum Noir FS2 with SU Light Pink Pirouette for the cheeks. The snow was colored with Copic BG70 and I outlined her with BG10. The waterbased markers were blended with a Tombow blender pen.
It was fun to bring the retro image back to life. I enjoyed finding the various colors to fit the challenge. Come join me and create a retro card!
