One of the things I remember from the 80s is the bright colors… hello neon! So I knew I had to make her outfit bright, very bright! I paper pieced her sweater from designer paper and colored the rest of the image. I added additional detail to the stereo using a Silver Copic Spica pen. The pokey circle poking out from behind the main panel was made using the new Award Seal Die-Namics. By the way – I love the new Retro Squares Die-Namics so I had to use them again on this card. I paired a strip cut out from turquoise cardstock with some honeydew baker’s twine.
So, is it bright enough? ;) Lol. Be sure to check back tomorrow for another teaser.
