Set Sail

I came across the Retro Rubber Challenge and was charmed by the design team photos.  I thought that I should have no trouble playing along with their challenges since I have shelves of stamps dating back to 1996.  The current challenge is to use ribbon or twine on your project.  I knew immediately that I wanted to use twine with a nautical knot, so I dug out a ship stamp from Stamp Cabana.  I played around a bit and wasn't happy with my result.  I then came across The Paper Players color challenge and I knew immediately that was the inspiration I needed.  The card came together quickly after that.





Happy Stamping,
Dana
