LOTV Retro Girls

Hello lovely people,

Have you seen the super cool new Retro Girls images from LOTV yet?

Ok, you can't actually get your hands on them until 3rd April, but then they will be available as Simply Print sheets, digi images and pre-order of rubber stamps.

I finally grabbed a few hours to play with them and thought it would be fun to make a matching set using one of the pair from each decade.

I'm sharing the whole set at once because I do think they look good all together...and I'm too lazy to write 4 separate blog posts for them - lol!

1950s Bobby Socks
 (I think this is my fave of the whole collection)

Hi Kat OMG these cards are stunning, your designs are fabulous. Not see the pop technique but will visit Fayne and take a look. Using the greys with just the hint of added colour looks wonderful. I think maybe I might love these stamps as I can remember them all LOL. Hugs Jennifer xx

Kat, oh my goodness, where do I begin chickabee?! These cards are utterly brilliant!! I love the warm greys colouring and the gorgeous pops of colour. I utterly LOVE what you've done with each of these, they look fantastic coloured up like this and you've chosen the perfect colour for each era. Brilliant hun! Love the gorgeous CAS designs too. So fabulous as they set up those fantastic images to utterly shine. Squeee, I'm just so inspired seeing these, I can't wait to get my hands on that 1950's image. One of my pals is having her 1950's themed 40th very soon and she will utterly LOVE this image on her card. Hanging out for the new release! Big hugs, Wends xoxo
