DS4J #75

Morning!  Gone a little retro here with this image and design from the 60's.  I remember that era only too well.  I was just starting out in a new marriage and then raising two daughters.  It was a very trying time, especially living in California.  We had a VW bus but not as decorative as the image here.  We used it for our camping trips.  With a handmade table in the back and the middle seat turned around, it was a great dining table.

As you have probably guessed by now, the theme at DigiStamps4Joy this week is the 60's.  Hop on over to the blog for some inspiration and to the store for the digis.  Remember Twiggy?  The moon landing?  The VW bus?  They are all there.

I used a piece of scrap with the spots, layered on a piece of bright orange.  The peace symbol I cut with my Cameo.  I also did a print and cut of the image with my Cameo.  I'd be lost without that machine.  The flowers are from Recollections, the bling from Want2Scrap.  I only stamped the word "peace" from a Christmas stamp.  And, of course, Copics for the coloring of the bus.  The dots on the bus are done with Liquid Pears.  I popped the bus with foam tape to give it a little dimension.

Challenges entered: Anything Goes/Vintage twist
