Keep Calm & Behave Yourself!

Today's card is a combination of something old plus something new!  Not only is this an image of a 1950's Corvette, but it's also a  Rubbernecker rubber stamp that I've had since 2009. 

That 'aging' works well for the Retro Rubber Challenge #109!  As such, it's well past time to bring it out to play on the stampy table again.  Takes one right back to those vintage "beach" movies from the 1960's ... Vroom-vroom! 





I love the sense of bold forward motion given by the new 'Mid Century Boomerangs' stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.  Silver Embossing Paste was applied through the stencil for the horizontal metallic + black strip.  Tex's Tip:  When using a texture paste, be sure to wash your stencil right away to easily remove the paste from the stencil.  Soaking in a tray of water will be helpful if a sink isn't readily handy. 

Next I lightly brushed gray ink onto the central area of the white card layer.  Although this layer adds no texture, it does continue the visual flow & direction.


Finally it's all topped off with a cool, single sentiment from Technique Junkies, easily placed with my Misti positioner.  The windshield is shiny & dimensional with Glossy Accents and a Gelly Pen gives a metallic look to the 'chrome' elements.  
Ready, set, Vroom-vroom!

  5. Hi, Bev! I just saw this at Retro Rubber and had to pop over. Your 'Vette is a vintage classic, for sure, and what a cool stencil! Gee, I have a few of those old Rubbernecker stamps, as well as a few new Rubbernecker. Still love them all! Your card is fantastic!
