I am having so much fun creating with this retro collection newly released from Hedgehog Hollow. Nothing says 60s more then a VW and some psychedelic colors for the background. I cannot contain my ideas. I will be making so many cards with the Groovy Gnome Stamp Set and Feeling Groovy sentiment Stamp Set. This latest subscription kit is my personal favorite so far. Check out all the cool stencils and retro paper designs.
My first step in making this card was to stamp the VW on cream card stock for the base, then on orange card stock, and finally on light blue card stock. Next I fussy cut the pieces I will use to assemble the VW bus. My hope was to create an authentic looking VW bus. The next step was to glue the pieces together making the final focal image.
By layering the colors onto the base VW I have a great looking VW.
The next step was to make a card base to put the VW on. I chose the psychedelic spiral paper from the Peace Out paper included in the box. In the hopes of making the VW look like it is coming through a tunnel I cut a circle into the paper large enough to fit the bus. The background of the hole was filled with dark purple card stock. These layers were then glued onto a black card base. This is a standard A-2 card for sizing purposes.
To finish the card I stamped the sentiment along with stamping flowers on either side of it. Placing the VW coming out of the tunnel uśing foam tape to add dimension and foam taping the sentiment banner beneath the bus finished the card front. I did add a few enamel black dots. This is a standard A-2 card. Stay tuned for more retro cards using this great kit! Enjoy
