Old School and Cool

When my eyeballs saw the current Moxie Fab challenge:

I knew what had to be done! I started on this at 5:15 this morning, I did, and I made this:


It took me three tries to get a handle on the Liquid Pearls, so I kinda had some practice, which is why these are pretty evenly applied. I also had to use Stickles for the blue-ish green since I have no blue-ish green, a situation I have miraculously corrected with a bit of retail therapy. *ahem*

Because I got the dots mostly straight and even in size, here's a close-up:

Yes, I'm very proud. *puffs out feathers*  I used Liquid Pearls, Stickles and a Viva Pen for the different colors. And in case some of you are too young, that red thing at the top/back of the photo is the ribbon. I know this because I've changed them in my lifetime, on manual typewriters -- pre-electric. Manual <> electric. So I used a red glitter pen on the ribbon part of the image.

This card was so fun to make! Thanks to Cath and all the gals at Moxie Fab World for the great challenge!

And thanks for stopping by!
