Tuesday Taggers ~ Retro Heaven (or Hell?)

It's Tuesday again and I've scraped together my DT card by the skin of my teeth. Not late, just totally and utterly defeated! I decided that rather than do an aged card I would interpret retro as 60's 70's design , and make a funky flower card with an Elusive Images stamp set I got in the Sale.

The image was elusive alright, it eluded me for two days and cost me three goes at it! Who's idea was it anyway..................let me see, oh yes that'll be me then! not my idea exactly but I am part of the brilliant team responsible for setting the challenges on our fantastic challenge blog!

Only this teamie is not so brilliant at all with this meagre offering which is put to shame by the other teamies efforts, take a look on Tuesday Taggers, they're great!

I'd love to say that the photo was set up to give a look back in history feel, looking a little dingy, yellowed and old but not so, I meant to get it crystal clear with superb colour and this is the result, even the camera's conspiring against me! Oh woe is me!!

Now this lack of inspiration is psychologically designed to inspire you to great things, you're supposed to look at it, think "well I can do better than that" go create a masterpiece and enter it on Tuesday Taggers to prove it! I think it's called reverse psychology......wonder if it works................. : )

Looking forward to seeing your entries

x Michelle
