Have Fun & dare to Indulge

This week over at One Powerful Hour I've set the theme of Retro/Pop Art.

I have always been drawn to the bright bold colors and images of Pop Art and there are so many ways to interpret 'retro' that I thought the combo was a good one.

I decided to use an image from a 30's/40's magazine advertisement. I added some elements to her that don't show, her lips are all sparkly. As my backdrop I selected a bright decorative paper and then stamped the little star like things, which seem very retro to me, all over. At their points I added some glitter. To finish it off I added the words, Have Fun, Dare & Indulge, they have diamond glaze over them.

Hopefully everyone has as much fun with this theme as I did.
