60's Retro - Rainey ~ Make It Monday #109

Another week has passed and we have another Linky Party starting over at Make It Monday!!!We had such a wonderful selection of cards last week that it just gets harder to pick one to feature here on my blog (check below to see if it's yours!!!)
Congratulations to Wedgie as MIM's featured blogger  and also to Tracey Brossart for being chosen as the winning commenter.
Our sponsor this week is Digi My World and I chose this fab retro image to play with. Isn't she cute? You can find it here.  I had a lot of my Copics go dry last week and took them to be refilled. Well... not happy, usually I find that they don't put enough ink in them but a different girl did them this time and there is ink going everywhere, I ruined 6 images on Thursday as the ink either leaked before I even touched the brush to the card or if I managed to get it to paper, it just spread out at the lightest touch. Almost makes me think that they have been watered down, I can't understand why the ink would be just pouring out like that,
LOL, it took me 3 goes with this image and one I got 3/4 done and then one of the markers leaked all over
it  - very frustrating
Here is the card I made with this fab image:  This is a pop up card - larger than I would normally make but I can see myself making it again after doing some adjustments to the measurements. It all lays flat to put in an envelope
