Out of this World….

When I saw this week’s CASology Cue Word # 35 EXTRATERRESTRIAL,  I could not get out of my mind the Outer Space shows of the 1960’s like My Favorite Martian and Lost in Space.  There was such a fascination with Space back then. This, in turn, made me think of the style of decorating from the 60’s- now referred to as RETRO. And so, while everyone has cool aliens and spaceships for this challenge, I have this:

One thing about this post that is definitely out of this world…the price of this stamp set  with a lot of images retailed for $14.50, and I picked it up for $1 at a craft boutique end of year inventory sale! I used the retro colors from Colour Q #180 .

  2. FUN! You mentioned My Favorite Martian and Lost in Space…you reminded me of The Jetsons and Battlestar Galactica, too! So many “retro” space shows to be inspired by, right? I LOVE your card…perfect CAS design! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

  3. How spooky – me and my other half were only talking about ‘Mork and Mindy’ last night! I think this is a perfect take on this challenge, thinking outside of the box whilst being in the box!! 😉 very clever 🙂

  6. So clever! Love the retro space-age feel of this – a perfect interpretation of the cue card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  7. Such a cute card! I’ve got to say I’ve never been too attracted to that retro look, to me it’s so hard to use… But way you used the shapes and colors, Simple, clean, you let the shapes make the statement. I love it! Ingenious.
