Retro sketches challenge

Stamps: Rustic Branches (PTI); Nordic Winter (WMS); Geo-Graphic (Paper Smooches)
Ink: Rhubarb Stalk, Pear Tart (Memento)
Other: button twine (WMS)

I'm not sure why I've never entered retro sketches before, but I have had a look every week.  This week it managed to coax my struggling mojo out from beneath the builders' dust.
Masking was no problem with my fabby new Pritt on & off roller.  It's the best temporary adhesive I've used.
Stamping was more of an issue. I like the look of the linen effect card, but it's a bit of a nightmare to stamp on, as you can see towards the top left of the chevrons.  Had to prune the twine a bit too, as it was rather hirsute. 
Enough of the moaning already! I'm pleased with the final outcome.
