Its my second week as Guest Designer over at CD Sunday and this week there is another fab theme : a song in my heart. I'd got some music related sheets printed off from Joanna Sheen's cd 'Dancing with Shadows' (one of my all time favourite crafting cds) when I spotted this beautiful silhouette of a girl dancing, now she really does look like she has a song in her heart.
I printed the silhouette out on acetate and then used some glossy card, masked a sun and brayered a spring sunset scene using B&J Soothing Sunset (of course lol) and over stamped with some foliage stamps from Chocolate Baroque. The acetate is attached to the scene with some pale green pearl brads. The bp is printed from another of my favourite cds, 'Essence of Nature' by Artylicious and is matted on some black card.
I inked some scraps of white card with B&J foliage ink pad and sprized with water, then I stamped the leaves with Sheena Douglass stamps and once they were dry I cut them out and decoupage them up with silicone glue. The flower is made from the scrap paper from brayering the scene, I punched out about 6 flowers with a woodware punch, scrunched them up and then layered them, adding some stamens and glitter in the centre. I also added some little curls of memory thread.
The sentiment is from Joanna Sheen, stamped on some spare card from making the leaves, cut with a nestie and layered on some more black card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
2 Sisters: Spring
Challenge up your life: Masking
Craft us Crazy: Easter or Spring
Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight: decoupage
Dutch Dare: spring has sprung
Fabulous Friday: brads
If the shoe fits: Spring is in the air
Make it colourful: Colouring skies (I love brayering skies as its such a quick and effective technique but I'm not sure if this technique counts so just delete my entry if it doesn't)
Simon Says Stamp: spring colour or easter
I hope i've inspired you to dust off your crafting cds and join our challenge at CD Sunday this week. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations :-). Its a lovely spring morning here today, blue sky and sunshine so i'm going to spend the morning weeding :-) For some reason I love weeding, and generally pottering round in the garden and of course its even better when the sun is shining. Have a good day
