But are they retro? I don't know. Those girls are almost certainly Vintage ha ha. Anyway they were just a by the way. I think of retro as bright colours,circles, lines and simple images so I decided to make an ATC using Salty Ocean, Barn Door and Mowed Lawn Distress ink. I masked an ATC to apply the colour in stripes. I liked it so much I forgot to take a picture. In the groove now. I decided to make a set of three and try and line up my stripes.
I've added a Christmas tree diecut from the Sizzix Snowman set and stamped with the corresponding Hero Arts stamp. Retro? I think so. I hope so.

So, are you are still with me? The first ATC I made which isn't part of the above set I decided to make into a card so I mounted it on a green marble card I found.
Small and cute. Honest, that card is green but it's quite pale in the picture.
