With everything going on in today's world it's important for us to maintain a sense of humor and Edna certainly has a great attitude. This week she's rocking to the tune of Retro. And damn, she's sporting some finely defined legs there.
Retro can mean a lot of things to a lot of people, especially ones of different age groups. I had several ideas but in the end decided to shop my stash for something that will be appropriate to some crafters.
Funny little personal story....
One of my son's favorite t shirts as a teen had a logo of a 45 rpm spider, also referred to as an adapter. Remember these?
He had bought the shirt himself and so one day I asked him if he knew what the logo was. Nope. Not a clue. He just thought it "looked cool." I felt very old explaining the concept to him. LOL!!
Ok...back to my card. :-)
I stamped and colored the turntable image with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils before fussy cutting it out. I used a wave background stamp to create the white embossed image onto black cardstock. I did a bit of creative masking on the sentiment. The original says "relax, vintage is totally cool right now." I taped off the word "vintage" before stamping and heat embossing in white. I then stamped in the word RETRO in the blank space and heat embossed it in teal. I added some enamel dots and really love how it turned out.
Question....do any of you still own your LPs/45s? I have four LPs displayed on craft room wall. I also still have my 45 collection which includes the original Bohemian Rhapsody/We Will Rock You by one of my favorite bands ever, Queen. And me being the OCD nerd then that I still am today, I have each and every album/single labeled in Sharpie with my initials and month/year that I bought them. Yep. I was born this way. ROFL!!
