Polish Days March: Vintage

This is my first entry for Polly Polish's Polish Days & I was really excited to do something vintage. Vintage is a theme I love & have done several posts here, here & here to show a few. I love romanticizing about days gone by & vintage patterns are all so lovely, it's hard to settle on any one design. I decided for this post to go kinda Retro, a little more current vintage, circa 60's maybe? I found this cute picture of some retro dandelions & thought it was perfect (also, easy, as I was strapped for time & already posting this quite late).


Inspiration found here


Anyhow, I used some alternating pastel green (NEELY) & blue (BLU) from the new Zoya spring collection. I put a layer of my new clear holographic top coat called Starlight on top for some shine :-) I then used an ultra fine sharpie for the lines & acrylic paint for the dots. I think it turned out kinda whimsical!

I added a 60's Polaroid film to this one for effect.
