Groovy Sixties chick!
This is '60s Willow from the Lil' Lolita Fashionista series by Tickled Pink Stamps Doesn't she look groovy in her brown cotton flares with the glittery shisha embroidery at the ankles, and her pale orange muslin top with the green silk ribbon.
How do I know so much detail? Because I had that outfit when I was a teen! I wasn't as tall and slim, but how I loved those clothes!!
The picture here looks a little faded, as usual (I blame the light!) but that's not a bad thing, because the orange card is very bright. The papers are from the Paisley Road stack by Prima, which was part of the blog candy I won from the lovely Joey The patterns and colours are so bright and retro - yes, children, we really did think that fuchsia, orange and lime green looked good together.
The flowers are made with a retro punch, the patterned ones are from the dp, curled, and covered with transparent glitter embossing powder. The gleam doesn't show here, but it's so pretty! I'm very chuffed with them!
Ribbon is Hobbycraft, punch is MS (a Christmas present), sentiment is The Greeting Farm. I stickled round the papers, as well as Willow's embroideries.
I woke up with post-Christmas ennui today. The comments I got on this blog, as well as the fun of making the card, have cheered me up no end. Thanks!
Thanks for looking!
luv, Mags x
