The Rubber Room at 613 Avenue Create

Good morning,
                      There is a brand new challenge over at

This month it’s Anything Goes  - optional twist – the Rubber Room – no digital stamps



I have to say that most of the stamps I use nowadays are digital, but I dug out my boxes of stamps and found this little beauty I’ve had for years, along with a paper pack to accompany the set of stamps sitting sadly neglected in my cupboard.

I coloured the image with Promarkers.
The corners were originally gold but I recoloured them with some Pinflair alcohol markers.
The sentiment was stamped onto elements from the paper set which I tore to create a ragged edge.
The thick jute rope was from The Range.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges …
