Let’s Dance…

I grabbed some time at the weekend to craft just for myself, because I could. Browsed some  challenges that I haven’t had time to enter for ages and made this card -
This is simply a collection of my favourite things – music, dance, distress inks, glitter, vintage, fabric flowers, lace...I had a lovely play ! The Ballerina stamp is from Happy Daze, stamped and embossed in clear, cut out and fixed with silicone glue. Live and Love Crafts have asked for ‘something old’ for January’s challenge – I’ve used an old music score stamp on the background. The wavy music stamp is from Stampendous.
The Artistic Stamper challenge this month is to use our favourite stamp, but mine changes so often depending on my mood so I’ve chosen my fav quotation stamp, one which inspires me to keep going when things get tough ! I’ve embossed it with Stampendous aged ivory embossing enamel – I’ve also added some of the same enamel in the corners.
The flowers I die cut from calico, stamped on them and layered with some Stampendous crushed glass champagne glitter in the centres. I also added some glitter dots, and stickles.
I’m sharing my card here -
