 I am using a stamp from 2009 today, every once and awhile you have to give those older stamps some play time. 

I colored it with markers using browns, blues and greys.  It felt weird to do the clouds in browns but after I have looked at it for awhile I like the touch it gives.

  • Hero Arts - Wood Frame Infinity die
  • Whimsy stamps - Simple sentiments stamp

I used the left side going down

We are too have sunshine the whole weekend, that makes this girl very happy :)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Hi, Connie! Beautiful monochromatic scene! It’s more like a sepia, vintage technique. Beautiful!

Daniela said...

How glad I am to find you here again!
After so much time, I can write a comment to an amzing post of yours, those posts I’ve never forgotten!
I’ve been away from the web since the reseraches and the drafting of the history essay I wrote for an Italian publisher about the Habsburgs took up all the time I had.
But I’ve finally come back.
Sending blessings on your weekend

I do love the oldies, and this one is beautiful! Cool with the sepia tone and wood grain frame. All things I love. It sure makes a perfect masculine card!

Fabulous scene you have created, perfect for any masculine celebration/need. I love that you can change this up for different seasons too....add snow or green grass even adding leaves, green or Fall foliage. Very nice!

I love this little forest scene you created, beautiful way to interpret the left column on the RETRO RUBBER grid.
Thank you for sharing.
Stay healthy and safe.

A lovely masculine creation, love the scene! So happy you shared this with us at Retro Rubber this week!

Stunning scene, you would never know the age of the stamp. It’s certainly one that doesn’t date.
