Welcome to another challenge starting over at Try it on Tuesday. This time around our theme is 60'S RETRO. Fashion, music, colours, culture...etc.
I decided to go with a Thank You card to keep on hand for just the perfect occasion. I combined a little retro fashion, retro colours and retro style to create my fashionable card. I would just like to say that after spending a little time on Google looking for inspiration, that I am entirely glad I did not have to live amongst those wretched colours and patterns! Have you ever seen a bathing suit from the 60's? Yipes!
The tag was covered with burlap, a layer of white gesso and then I used a Prima stencil to lay down the polka dots. While the texture paste was still wet, I brushed on some DecoArt Americana paints Antique Gold, Burnt Sienna and Milk Chocolate from lightest to darkest in a radial pattern.
The sentiment was stamped with an doodle stamp set, I have no idea what it's called. The arrow was made with a Time Holtz arrow stencil using black texture paste and I fussy cut it out. The bubble die cut is from Memory Box the rays in the background were made using Tim Holtz stencil Rays and brushing on a little DecoArt paints Citron Green and Pistachio.
The butterfly is from Kaisercraft, stamped with Ranger Archival ink Jet Black and coloured with Vintage Photo and Shabby Shutters distress markers. The flowers were made with Joy Crafts Flower 4 die and coloured with Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive. The ladies are from Tim Holtz's new stamp set. I paper pieced on their dresses from a couple of emboss resist pieces using Shabby Shutters to colour them.
OK, so the lace was really just for me...I needed to shabby it up a bit or I would have went crazy!!!
I am entering my fashionable 60's ladies into the following wonderful challenges:
