Totally 80's! Loves Rubberstamps Challenge

Hello Friends!

Welcome back to Tuesday's Challenge at Loves Rubberstamps!
So this week is a fun one!  Do you remember the 1980'?  What was your favorite part?  I still love the music and listen to it often.  There is just nothing better.  How about the bright florescent colors, tie dye T-shirts?  Well, let's take a walk down memory lane and celebrate the 1980's with our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week.  If you weren't around in the 80's, I am sure you are familiar with google - see what sparks your creativity!

 Our sponsor this week is Kenny K!

I had fun with this one, but it didn't turn out quite as I had hoped.  I used Kenny K  - Fabulous Farah (generously provided by Kenny K) image and colored her with copics.  Since I didn't have any tie dye paper, I made my own for the background.  I used the copic air brush system with different bright colors in circles.  Once I was finished, I spritzed the background with Copic Colorless Blender in a spray bottle.  It faded some areas.   Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Stain in White Picket Fence and stamped circle images in the background to add more of a tie dye look.  I finished it off with some ribbon and Wild Orchid Crafts Open Roses.

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E13, E21
Hair:  C3, C5, C7, C9, 110
Dress/Boots:  RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29
Jacket:  YG01, YG03, YG07
