"Look, Ma, I made a clean and simple card!!"
Things started to settle down this week and I finally have a new freshly stamped card to share with you! This one was inspired by this week's Retro Sketch challenge (#84). While it was tempting to interpret the sketch with washi tape and use the Tape It stamp set, I decided to put some mileage on my uninked Filmstrip stamp instead. I was immediately drawn to this stamp in the new catalogue and got it right away, but never got around to using it until now. I got the idea to pair it with the Autour du monde stamp set and use the images in between the film strips.
The color combo was inspired by a piece of fabric I saw online and since we don't have any curreny blue that matched the color in the inspiration piece, I used the retired Buckaroo Blue color. My favorite part is the Candy Dots in matching colour added to the strips. While the brads we carried before didn't include every single color of the regular line, the candy dots do come in every single color available! Of course, since I was using two In Colors, I had to select something close for those two (Crushed Curry for Summer Starfruit and Soft Suede for Baked Brown Sugar).
