Fashion Decades Challenge, I’m Feelin’ Groovy

Hi All,

Happy Sunday! I’m just checking in real quick to share the card I put together for the Fashion Decades challenge over on Saturated Canary.

My wonderfully crafty friend, Carisa at Inky Fairy Designs suggested that I enter this challenge. Actually, I think her exact words were, “You better!”. LOL!

So here I am, entering the fun Fashion Decades Challenge with my colorful 60’s card I created using this mod 60’s Saturated Canary girl.

For this challenge there were 6 different image choices to color. One that features 40’s/50’s girls, 60’s/70’s girls or 80’s/90’s girls. Although I love, love, loved the fashion from the 40’s and the 80’s, I couldn’t resist the funky floral mini-dress on the 60’s digi stamp because I knew I could color her up with my Copic markers in some really bright fun colors.

I did just that, colored her dress in a bright pink and added orange and green flowers and orange trim on her dress and sleeves. I continued the same color scheme on her head band. I added a tiny bit of Wink of Stella sparkle to the flowers on her dress (but you can’t see it very well without using a flash). For her boots, I thought of coloring them white like many go-go boots were back then but opted to color them in the same shade of pink as the dress.

For the rest of my card, I started with a fun, bright floral 6 x 6 piece of cardstock from the Momenta paper pack. I think this paper pack is another reason I chose the 60’s image. I knew that I could use this totally cute paper for the background. I die cut the 6 x 6 piece with the stitched rectangle from the Die-namics Blueprints 15 die set.

I then selected some bright orange and bright pink cardstock from my stash (aka mountain) of solid colored cardstock. I believe the colors I chose came from a Recollections paper pack. I used the wonky (not the technical term) odd-shaped large rectangle from Blueprints 15 and cut one piece of the orange cardstock and two pieces of the pink. I layered the pink on the bottom in an offset so it appears to have one full sheet of die-cut pink cardstock and then layered the orange on top so that the pink peeks out underneath.

I added a cute little paperclip with the green polka-dot ribbon on top to the orange layer before I glued everything together.

Next I printed my sentiment on some Neenah Solar White 80 lb cardstock. It was die-cut using the small wonky rectangle from the Blueprints 15 set. I added some sponged on distress ink in Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade to the edges of the sentiment to tone down the white a bit.

All layers were glued to a A2 size card base made from Neenah Solar White 80 lb cardstock. I added two of the adorable little wooden & enamel dots from Bo Bunny to the lower corner.

Hope you enjoyed this fun card as much as I did in putting it together. I do hope your day is groovy!
