The Rubber Cafe Designs

Here are a couple cards I made with my The Rubber Cafe stamps. I made the Three Wisemen card the other day and the Blossom Branch card on WCMD. I had made it for a challenge actually until I realized that I was missing half of the challenge elements. I'll chalk it up to late night stamping fatigue!! :)

The Rubber Cafe - Three Wisemen & Peace, Love, Joy
CS: Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive, WW, Basic Grey Figgy
Ink: Bravo Burgundy
Other: Stampin Dimensionals

On this card I dotted the centers of some of the flowers with the Sakura Yellow Glaze Pen. That same pen was used to make the dots around half of the outer part of the card. It also adds a bit of texture to the card. The Sakura Green Souffle Pen was used on some of the leaves. This is more of a flat opaque addition to the card. I sponged Pixie Pink around the outer edge of the image, but felt it was a bit too bright. So I muted it by then sponging Creamy Caramel over it.

The Rubber Cafe - Blossom Branch
CS: Creamy Caramel, So Saffron, Pixie Pink, Gable Green, Georgia Pacific White, Basic Grey Stella Ruby
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Pixie Pink, Creamy Caramel
Other: RV02 Sugared Almond Pink Copic Marker, Sakura Yellow Glaze Pen, Sakura Green Souffle Pen, Stamping Sponge, Stampin Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!! Hope you are having or had a great evening!!
