I must have had the approaching summer in my head when I made this card. Friday Mashup are looking for a decades-themed card and when I was looking through my stamps, I came across a set from CTMH that had never seen ink. I used the sketch from The Challenge and the colors from ColourQ to make this card:
When I first saw the colors at ColourQ, I decided to run as fast as I could in the other direction. But then when I saw the images, I thought these colors were retro enough to work with these 50's inspired stamps. I had to dig out my SU cardstock, which I haven't used in quite some time to get the right color matches.
I started by die-cutting three panels using the Horizontal Stitched Stripes dies. I then used some tape to adhere them together before stamping the World Map background using Versamark. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.
The central image was stamped in black onto Island Indigo cardstock and again on Raspberry Ripple cardstock. I used a stitched circle die to cut a spotlight and adhered that to the blue panel, which was then adhered to a notebook die-cut. Three tiny banners were adhered to the side and the whole piece was mounted on foam tape.
This is definitely not my normal sort of card, but it was fun to make! Thanks for visiting.
