She's a bit bright and in your face, but colours were bright back then. I remember I used to have a bright green satin jacket, green and yellow bell bottoms and bright yellow platform sandals and thought I was the dog's wotsits, lol. I was in the WRAF at the time and remember wandering around camp in them.
One of the reasons I coloured her trousers red though, is because I also had a pair just like them. The best thing though is that I made them myself. I was at school, so about 14 or 15 and it was the first pair of trousers I'd made and if I say so myself, they were excellent and I wore them to death, lol.
The papers I used for this were from my new pad, Basic Greys 'Konnichiwa' and the white and orange die cuts are using a Marianne Die. The leaves and blossom were using a Memory Box die, but to be honest, I didn't have much of a clue how to put the flower together. Layering the petals was obvious, but I reckon I could have shaped them better or chose different layers. Still, next time eh? I must do something about my photography too. In real life, the skin tones look darker and there's plenty of shading, but it never seems to show when I upload!
