I am a sucker for 60's groovy colors and florals. I even have a few 60's fabrics that I use as curtains or tablespreads. So when Retro rubber announced their challenge I was over the moon.
I selected this large floral stamp that hasn't seen any love for a while. I bought it on a trip to Stockholm five-six years ago. I colored it in with Distress colors to get a watercolor look; Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord and Frayed Burlap that has turned green in the bottle (so weird).I was even able to achieve several more prints, each turning a bit paler. They will be great as backgrounds in future projects.
For the sentiment I wanted to stay in the groove (pardon the pun), so I dug out this old alphabet stamp. I have no idea who the maker is, I bought it when I first started and that was around 2007.
And this is the finished card:
