Tickled Pink Stamps - Fashioinette Lil Lolitas preview day 2!

Not surprisingly you all seemed to LOVE Evie as much as I do!!! Well I have another stunning image for you today too!!! Yes, it is day 2 of the Tickled Pink Stamps Fashionette Lil Lolitas previews and we're zapping through the eras to the 60's today with Mod Ivy!!!! Now, I wasn't around in the 60's but my parents were and I just love looking at photos of them during that time and of course I love a lot of the music so I loved making this card. It's my Mum's birthday next week so I'm thinking I might even give her this card!! I remember my Mum gave me some of her old 60's Mary Quant make up when I was little - bright blue eyeshadow and silver lipstick LOL - I kid you not!! Anyway LOL the Mary Quant flower logo was the inspiration for my card!!! Here she is............Mod Ivy!!!! Isn't she amazing!?!?

LOVE her boots - had to do them patent white leather LOL along with her headband and belt for her maxi mini dress in black and white! I added some rock candy stickles to her boots, belt and headband to make them shine - wish I'd had some of that glossy accents stuff, would have been better but there you go. I was going to emboss them until I discovered the "clear" embossing pen I've never used actually shows up blue through the clear embossing powder :(.

I used the amazing sketch by Bev for the Create 4 fun challenge, it was just perfect for what I had in mind with the big flowers - don't you just love it when that happens!? The papers are from the Hobby House, they're actually from a wedding collection by Making Memories but worked a treat!
I made the Mary Quant style flowers by punching out a retro flower with my EK success punch and then drawing round it to create less space between the petals. The circles in the middle are cut from the backing paper and I added some Prima centre kisses to them for a bit of sparkle (never thought I'd use the black ones LOL).

Hope you like the new image, I have four more stunners to show you so watch this space tomorrow! They will be available to buy from Tickled Pink Stamps on Saturday and Kellie posts stamps out international so noone misses out!! x

Hi Jane
Love your card. If I didn't know better I would think that you were around in the 60s, as your card is just how it was then. I can recall the 60s (too well) lol, I too used to have the silver & BRIGHT pink lipstick. I used to wait untill I got out of sight of my house & then used to roll my school skirt up from the waist, so that it then became a mini skirt rotfl.

P.S. I am loving these stamps.
