visible Image Molly does the 80's

hi :)
well i have no idea what came over me, i am not usually a bright in your face colours kinda gal, but for some reason today i was feeling the 80's vibe lol

i went back to an old fave with Molly from the Molly rules set 
 i had so much fun colouring her , really went all Cindy Lauper on her lol
of course then I'm like oh hell what do i do with her :/
so out come the inks and stamps and after some trial and error and some very inky hands i came up with a slatter, grungy, bright crazy yet somehow kinda works background...
what you think?

so on the background iv used Inkadinks water based in ink  Lilac Heaven, Cranberry sorbet and Gooseberry fool, i just randomly splashed them over the card and spritzed with water let them move a round a little then dabbed with kitchen towel so they didn't muddy or take over all the white bits. then using the Hyacinth big and juicy pad up the purple end i stamped the dragonfly randomly over the page, then up the green end using the Retro dots background i went along the bottom and up the right hand side, then again just a part of the top left hand corner.
Now i love the effect iv seen on  peoples cards with the Frantage, but alas i have none, so feeling in an experimental mood i just sprinkled some generic purple and pink cheapo embossing powder randomly over the background and heated from beneath, i wasn't sure if it would stick, but it did, and i quite like the effect.
i gave Molly some wings from the Time after Time set (oops theres Cindy again!) and finished off with the Just to brighten our day sentiment from the Chandelier set.
and there you have it my little walk down the memory lane of my eighties colour splash , and yes i really did dress in those colours!!
 till next time
