Face the music and dance at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, Monday morning already and its time for a new challenge at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'Face the music and dance' so we want to see your projects with music or dance somewhere, of course we want to see stamping as the focus of your project too (no digistamps allowed). Our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher from Flonzcraft and you get lots of stamps for your money so I do hope you're going to join us.


I didn't have any music or dance themed stamps from Flonzcraft so I decided to improvise and stamped an Indigo Blu music stamp over my backing paper with Tea Dye distress ink. The bp is from Lili of the Valley and I used it to cover a shaped card blank, distressing the edges with some more Tea Dye distress ink. I used a spellbinders die to cut the mat for my focal image, this little girl from Flonzcraft is one of my favourites 'Girl with bird on hand'. I coloured her with pencils and fussy cut her, popping her up on 3d foam pads and adding the birds to the corner of the card. 

I've added some little pearl flowers with gems in the centres, ribbon, pearls, lace and a little bird charm to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
Moving along with the times: girls just want to have fun
Sugar Creek Hollow: Its charming

Thanks for popping by today
