Groovin' hello

Our Clean and Simple Challenge this week was to make "groovy elements". I initially misread this and headed in a different direction, and thankfully had another look at the Design Team post. But, I don't really have anything that could be considered "groovy", so I went for the "groovy" era, that being the 60's and 70's and did a wild background and large hello die using Winsor Newton paints. This is one case where I wanted my paints to run together, just a bit ~ so I blew on the paint as I was tilting it. Once the background was dry I die cut the paper with the labels die and embossed with the big circle embossing folder, as I think things were going round and round back in those days! I shadowed using bright green cardstock and added some red bakers twine just because I think it needed more colour! I then attached on foam strips and attached my big hello which I styled just to give it the round feeling and added it on small foam dots ~ then my signature sequins. Clearly, I had a lot of fun making this card. Thanks for looking.

Oh, Kia, I'm feeling the "groovy" in this card, and I remember the days when things were swirling and tie-dye was big! So this is a perfect card depicting the 60's and 70's. Oh, I remember those days...hehe! Old enough to remember them well and live them. Beautifully done and what fun it had to be to make it, sweet friend! Hugs, and have a great week! xoxo
