Retro Girl

Such a fun theme at the current Time Out Challenges – Retro with the optional twist of One Layer. My Retro take on this challenge was incorporating Hippie and Flower Power…I had the perfect digistamp from Lily of the ValleyThoroughly Modern Misses June.

Images

  • Printed digistamp onto Hammermill cardstock with inkjet printer. This is safe for colouring with alcohol markers.
  • Colour with Copics – B23, B18, B26, R02, R05, R27, Y11, Y32, Y26, E0000, E00, E02, BV00, N0, N2, N4, C1.

Background

  • Cut out mask of girl (See ‘Tip’ below).
  • Die cut background mask out of copy paper (thin) using Penny Black Antique Frames dies.
  • Place masks over printed image (see image ‘Masks‘ below).
  • Stamp My Favorite Things Bundles of Blossoms background stamp over masks.
  • I then dry embossed using the same Antique Frames die.

Tip for creating mask of digistamp: I scanned image with my Brother Scan n Cut DX1200 and cut out of post it label tape. Otherwise, print out image again on copy paper and hand cut.

Masks

Sentiment

  • I had the perfect sentiment from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit March 2018. The shape fitted the image perfectly.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Versafine Claire Nocturne.

Finishing

  • I wanted to spotlight the image so coloured around the outline with Copic Marker ‘C1’.
  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Let’s play rugby

Hello again. This is a custom order I created recently. Happy I managed to purchase some of the Lily of The Valley digistamps before they stopped selling them and this image was a perfect fit for the recipient – Rugby Mad. Wanted to also try the My Favorite Things Double Slider Loop Slot dies for the first time and it worked perfectly.

The Mama Elephant  Swinging Borders and Lots of Letters sets were the perfect size to add in the corner as was the Sun from Concord and 9th  Shine On. Of course, my go to cloud stencil from My Favorite Things along with their grass stencil makes the perfect background.

Hope you enjoyed learning about this card.
