Color Throwdown #84 Surfin' Dude

These were the colours for the challenge over at Color Throwdown this week. And an inspiration of Miami in the 50's was given. I had this Magnolia Edwin stamp from last summer's collection which I hadn't used yet and it sprung to mind immediately. I also added "chrome" as this reminds me of the 50's too! The not too clear greeting is a quote from Dr. Seuss " If you never did, you should. These things are fun and... FUN IS GOOD!"


Stamps: Magnolia Surf Edwin, Verve "Dr.Seuss" sentiment, SU "Limited Edition" from "Art by Design" set
Cardstock: SU Bashful Blue, Only Orange, Basic Black and Taken with Teal
DSP: SU Washington Apple and a random black and teal swirly paper
Ink: SU Bashful Blue, Only Orange, Basic Black and Taken with Teal
Misc: SU Hodgepodge Hardware, Woodware black brads, Papermania orange spotty brad, baby blue organza ribbon
Tools: SU 1 3/4" Circle punch, Woodware Scallop oval punch, Make Me Oval punch, Piercing tool and mat, SU Papersnips, Tombow, SU Dimensionals, SU Glue Dots, double sided tape
