This week's The Cat's Pajamas challenge is a stamp challenge, hosted by Susan. She challenged us to use the set, "It's a Mod, Mod World". I love this set, and it is the first one that I purchased from The Cat's Pajamas. I loved Sprinkle (that swanky little cat), and I loved the retro images, including the "Rut-roh" type Poochie and his Jetson's styled car. It was the start of my TCP addiction.
For the challenge, it took me a few days to pick which stamps to use. Then I chose the patterned paper, which feels very retro to me, and the card started to come together after that. The blue part of the TV is colored with a Prismacolor pencil, and the orange part is colored with reinkers and a blender pen. Gosh, I hate coloring large areas with markers or blending pens, but sometimes it is the only way to get colors to match. (I have worse luck with watercolors, unless I want a watercolor effect!) I really wanted that TV to be orange!
