OLW102, Colourful Retro



So sorry for such a long blogging break.  I have been off this week and just can't seem to find my 'mojo'.  It does feel great to be back creating again and playing with my inks and stamps. 
Today's card was created for the OLW102 challenge Arydth is hosting this week which is to create a card based on a subject you loved at school and for the challenge at Splitcoast...show us your colours and also the challenge at Moxie Fab; Movement.  As a child, I loved art class and painting.  I still remember the thrill of starting Kindergarten and painting for the first time!!  When I was older, we made tye dyed shirts one year and hence, my card.
I masked the edges so they would remain white and sponged Distress inks onto a mask from the Crafter's Workshop.  I added some additions paint drops from stamps sitting on my desk.
Hope you have a great wknd and thanks so much for stopping by.

Supplies:  stamps; Studio G, various/ mask/ Distress inks/ twine
