little bit retro

this one went  Retro
 i had water coloured the stamp for the topper and  couldn't decide which way this card was going to go . i wanted it in bright colours as the sun flower always reminds me of hot sunny days
 so i went with orange yellow and lime green i stamped out the base for the topper onto water colour paper and painted in with very weak water colour washes once this was dry i  got my quickie glue pen went over the image and added iridescent glitter then with a green glitter pen went around the edge as if it had been stitched .
so with velvet ribbon and few green gems it all came together ...isn't it surprising from just one stamp you can go in so many different directions....... this card really reminds me of the Sixty/ Seventies lots of bright colours and big flowers
hope you approve thank you for popping by today
