I love working with retro things, vintage embellishments and fun patterns so the monthly challenge at STAMPlorations is sah-weet for my cardmaking inspiration.
I wanted to have some fun with the colors and patterns of the late 60s and early 70s so I broke out some of my vintagey papers.
I chose this rich gold-brown and used a white pigment ink to stamp a subtle pattern using balloons from A Snarky Birthday to You.
I layered on funky patterned papers, adding some texture with with CUTplorations Art Edges for a little bit of visual interest.
I used the CUTplorations Celebrate Word Die and double layered it for dimension, stamped a sentiment using SENTIMENT BUILDERS: Celebrate, scribbled on some x's using a white gel pen, and splashed the whole thing with some Picket Fence Distress Spray Stains.
