It's that time again . . . Don't you just LOVE Hanna Stamps Preview week???? Today Hanna is going back in time, to a time much more funky and psychedelic than now!!! Oh my goodness, the sets from Hanna Stamps this month are just TOO much fun! Be sure to check back every day for more previews!!!

I love this set and I bet you will too! I was channeling my inner flower child (or Austin Powers if you prefer) when I was creating these samples -- lots of bold bright colors. It was super fun! Groovy baby!!!

Stamps: Hippy Chick (Hanna Stamps), Feeling Groovy (Verve Visual) Paper: Orchid Opulence (SU!), Basic Black (SU!), Solar Crest White (Neenah) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, Versamark Accessories: Copic Ciao Markers, clear embossing powder (SU!), Nestabilities (scalloped and plain ovals), cuttlebug machine, sewing machine, black thread, assorted prima flowers, black brads (The Paper Studio), White Inkssentials Gel Pen, black polka dot organdy ribbon

And now for a little musical interlude by The Troggs -- what? Never heard of them . . . oh, but I think you will see you have . . .

Wild thing
you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy
Wild thing

Wild thing, I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure
Come on, hold me tight
I love you

Wild thing
you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy
wild thing

Sorry about making the song get into your head . . . I had it in my head for days after I made this *evil grin* I was going for a tie-dyed look with this one. Not your classic tie dye, but a faded looking one. I think it works. I love the pink and orange together. Oh and those jeans were LOTS of fun to make -- the shading was doing marvelous things for me and I think they actually look like jeans *beaming proudly* I made my own background paper for this one too -- love those funky flowers that come in this set!!!

Stamps: Hippy Chick (Hanna Stamps), Feeling Groovy (Verve Visual) Paper: Only Orange (SU!), Basic Black (SU!), Solar Crest White (Neenah) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine Accessories: Copic Ciao Markers, Copic colorless blender, clear embossing powder, black polka dot organdy ribbon
