OWH Challenge with a Retro feel

This is the new Rosie the Riveter stamp from Bombshell. I was so disappointed to be traveling when this image was released, so I haven't had a chance to color her yet. The first time out I wanted to go with the typical standard colors, and this is what I ended up with. The paper is Farmhouse Fair Skies. The trinket on the bottom is a BoBunny trinket and goes wonderfully well with the image and the paper.

But what is even better was when I went looking for inspiration, I found this gorgeous sketch out on Operation Write Home, and it was perfection!

The colors used include the following:
Blues - B32, 34, 37, 39
Reds - R35, 37, 39
Hair - E38
Skin - YR000,00, E11
