Project 100: Retro sketch travel stamp challenge

Another post from the amazing Skype playdate. It was fitting that enter Retro Sketches this week as that has become a new favorite of ours, thanks to Claire.



I wanted to show off some of the stuff that Claire had sent me in my lastest craft care package so I used the washi tapes as th ebanners against a kraft card. We set ourselves a mini challenge within this sketch to use the travel stamps we both have. I used the camera where she used the planes. This is very much the spirit of our playdates - why not make a challenge more challenging but complicating the rules ourselves? :)


I kept the greeting simple as I wasn't sure who this was going to yet. I kept it masculine with the blue and natural card as I have needed a few cards recently where overly girly cards would have been inapporpriate. A very CAS result!

  1. Nice card - once again nice to see the detail - difficult with Skype. I LOL when I read your comment about us 'complicating the rules' we do have a habit of doing this..always works out in the end though right? Cx

  2. For some reason I like to complicate things when I do a challenge too! Great use of the camera stamp and I love the cool blues against the Kraft. Thanks for joining in this week at retro sketches!
