My inspiration was THIS BOOK COVER. I loved the retro colors - navy, pale blue, berry pink and a dark yellow with ivory. My version uses a coral in place of the berry pink because it seemed to work better. I appropriated the bicycle as a focal image and included a strip of type.
Thanks for looking!

Thanks for directing my attention to such a fascinating book via your lovely card, Robin. My youngest nephew might still be young enough to enjoy that book, and since my brother did graphic design I know he would!
I really like the muted heritage colours, and love the way you stamped Script on the print. The contrast in scale works wonderfully there.
