Cinema Saturday #45

I probably should have put a brightness warning on this one shouldn't I? This week's Cinema Saturday movie is Sixteen Candles, and our challenge requirement was 80's colours... so out came the fluro Bold Brights! lol I did have Summer Sun and Tangerine Tango for the yellow and orange but they just didn't look bright enough, so I used Yoyo Yellow and Only Orange instead - yes, I used those two colours of my own free will! You can pick yourself up off the floor now lol I'm not much of an orange or yellow fan as it is, but when it comes to these two colours I use them even less than normal. So much so that I am still working on the original sheets (12) from the bulk packs of Bold Brights I bought in 2006 (when Stampin' Up! started in Australia in 2006 only select colours were available in their own packs of cardstock, so the only way to get many of the colours was in a bulk pack). As I mentioned before, I am currently desk lighting challenged, and as that is where I normally take the photos of my creations I had to come up with something else for this one. I had to dash outside and snap my photo in the late afternoon light to get this today, but the colours and brightness are off in the photo so I will have to get another one some other time. Oh, and the card layout comes from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge 93.

The set I've used here is a brand new one for me called Party Hearty. During June and July Stampin' Up! ran an incentive for their demonstrators where we could earn a free set for placing $600 in orders in both months. I chose Party Hearty because it even though it's not my normal style, it is quite versatile.

Cardstock: Pink Passion, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange, Green Galore, Whisper White

Inks: none
Accessories: markers in Pink Passion, Green Galore, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange; scallop circle punch, dimensionals
