Retro Rubber Challenge #26

Here's my card

It's for the current challenge at Retro Rubber

Challange 26

I started by stamping using the image from Stampin Up's Upsy Daisy. Then, I punched a 1" circle from a post-it (including the sticky part) to use as a mask. I inked up the card front with distress inks (dusty concord and chipped sapphire) using ink blending tools. I removed the mask and didn't like the stark white, so added some mustard seed to the sun/moon. I trimmed the card front, matted with black and added the three small circles. I attached this to a kraft card and added a sentiment.

Thanks for visiting
