Going retro


Morning peeps, Friday means a new challenge at Polkadoodes and Lou is our host again, this week with the theme of "Modern/Retro with some stamping".

Retro is one that always throws me a bit as peoples ideas of it seem to vary, but I have come up with what it means to me. The background pink and black roses paper is from Love and Romance CD and the flowers from All Around CD, simply cut our, distressed round the edges with Tim Holtz black soot and mounted onto a Nestie circle which I ran through the Big Shot using the Cuttlebug roses folder. The spotty label is also from the All Around CD and the stamped sentiment Penny Black 3851E.

Hi Brenda,
I know what you mean about feeling out of your comfort zone, this one would be a hard one for me too. I think I have become too comfortable with cute images lately, not that I am complaining but there are loads of other things I just don't seem to know were to start on.
I have had some lovely floral stamps that are really gorgeous but I don't know how best to use them, I think a day just messing about is on the card's, in the past I have found just playing makes for a better finish rather than sitting concentrating too much....

Loved what you came up with though, it's a nice change, lovely colours and gorgeous design...

Very refreshing for me!!!
