It's Retro Kids!

Morning All - something a bit different from my usual style as I've given my pens a day off and used paper piecing for a change. Now here's a question for you- What comes first... the paper or the image? Bit like the chicken or the egg?? I have to admit I bought this paper and didn't know what I would use it for but then I saw this perfect Dr Digi image called C60 and a design plan was hatched!

I did used the Warm Grey 5 and Black Promarkers just to give a little depth to the image and also a silver pen to colour the screws. The paper is from Basic Grey called B-side. I used a strip of matt black card to edge this to represent the tape inside the cassette. I printed the image put three times - once onto the patterned pink paper which is from Simple Stories snap basics collection, the other two were onto different shades of grey Bazzill. I cut the middle away and glued some acetate behind to create a window and used a little more of the matt black card to make it look like the wound up tape.
All the letter stickers are from Doodlebug Teeny type in Tangerine and finally I added some Doodlebug Sprinkles in co-ordinating colours as they reminded me of the buttons that used to be on my Ghettoblaster!! (Remember them Kids??)

And don't forget the Birthday card challenge is still going on the Dr Digi Facebook page... We would love to see your creations!
