Tickled Pink Stamps Fashionette Lil Lolita previews - day 4!

Thank you all so much for your comments on these Fashionette Lil Lolita previews - looks like you're all loving them as much as me! Today we're popping back to the 60's and this time it's the hippy movement we're into with 60's Willow!!! How cool is she with her flower power flares and doing the peace sign!?!?! Hmmmm I thought, what would a hippy girl have?? A VW camper van of course!!!!

Hehehe!!! What do you think!? I had such fun making this, I couldn't stop chuckling to myself and I kept having little outbursts of "you can take a sunrise" (do you know the bit in Madagascar when Alex the Lion gets hit with the tranquilizer dart LOL??) That is all I could think of as I was putting this flower power creation together! I searched the internet for a front view of the VW camper van - not an easy task I can tell you - everyone seems to want to take the photos on an angle PMSL! Anyway, I found one eventually and drew myself a little camper van template so I could create one for our Willow! I've embossed the details on the bonnet with silver embossing powder.

60's Willow is coloured with copics. The number plate message was written with a white gel pen.

Isn't it funny how you have things in your stash you think you're never going to use!? Well these huge green Prima flowers were one such item and at long last I've used them both!! yippee!! I added a cool gromit from my stash and a pearl brad from the Hobby House. The flower brads are from my stash, not sure who makes them. The papers are the last of my MME Quite Contrary paper - I can't stop using these!!

I tucked a few more flowers around the camper van for some extra flower power LOL!

On the back of the stand for the easel card I created a cloudy sky background following Jeanette's brilliant tutorial on the Whiff of Joy Inspirational blog so that when you first take the card out of the envelope the VW camper has a sky background to it. Here it is all folded up! Hope you like 60's Willow. Not long now and you can order these amazing stamps for yourself from Tickled Pink Stamps!! I have two more beauties to show you though so don't forget to check back tomorrow! x

Like the minibus idea & the colours are nice & sort of quiet but with the orangey zing - there were some around like that if I remember rightly.
