I am Diggin’ this Retro Stamp set Marquee Messages. The retro look of this set is so cool. Doesn’t this just scream “Throw Back”. The color combinations helps so much to make this stamp set unique. Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, Melon Mambo and Basic Black.
Our CEO of Stampin’ Up!, Sara Douglass, demonstrated this stamp set at the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Convention. We even received this stamp set for free during Prize Patrol at convention.
The Marquee is stamped in basic black archival ink onto Whisper white cardstock and then cut out. Then it is stamped again onto Melon Mambo and then again on Tempting Turquoise and cut out the pieces then attached back onto the whisper white stamped image. The colors of the sign are done with an aqua painter dipped in the lid of an inkpad. Soft sky, tempting turquoise and melon mambo inks were used to color the signage.
The splatter background was done with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in tempting turquoise ink onto soft sky cardstock.
Just Look at the close up. The duplication of the BIG White bulbs on Retro Signs was done with Stampin’ Up! pearl jewels and they worked out perfectly.
You’ll notice that the words and those little starlight things are glossy and shiny… and you are probably wondering how they got that way, since Stampin’ Up! has retired the crystal effects… turns out that the Fine Tip Glue Pen works just like crystal effects! It even dries quick AND, it goes on so nicely because of the “fine tip.” Fun Fun Fun How about that? Looks FAB!
