Corrosive Challenge 21


Our inspiration came from this & I could see bright colours & funky girls & I thought of Pink Flamingo DSP - could have sworn I ordered some but no, so Washington Apple DSP - which kind of sets the colours (Bashful Blue, Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie). The funky girl (who I thought was perfect) comes from one of the following: my lovely SBS sisters Leslie or Janet or Tracy J from NZ who have kindly sent me stamped images before.

Don't ask me where the circle idea came from but it looks good with the cut out girl, and don't ask me why I wanted to cut her out (as it was harder than it looked & I only had one image i.e. no mistakes allowed). But I'm really pleased with the final card - it's fun & suitable for a teenage i.e. my nieces - they'll love it.

Stamps: Really Retro (word), ?? girl stamp
Ink: Black, various Stampin' Write Markers
Paper: Bashful Blue, Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Washington Apple DSP
Other: Creative Memories cutting system, 1-¼" circle punch, 1" circle punch, word window punch, dimensionals

So hope you can play along too (there's always a wee random prize - this week a $10 voucher for Hanna stamps) - click HERE to see the other great entries. I'm really interested in what everyone comes up for this one!
