Let's Dance


I am pleased to say that the lady who asked for the flower tags in yesterday’s post messaged me and said her MIL is delighted with them and will be wanting some more. 

Another commissioned card but this time for another lady. I don't do many cards to order but have made several this month.  The brief was for a girlie card, make up, jewellery, dancing, singing etc. I remembered this old Whiff of Joy stamp designed by Elisabeth Bell I.  I coloured her with Copics and paper pieced her dress. This proved trickier to cut out than I expected so I decided to colour the beads with a black Copic pen rather than trying to cut round them. Unfortunately it was a new pen which blobbed as they do occasionally so I had to stamp the dress and cut it out for a second time and attach on top which gave a decoupaged look so all's well than ends well and she loved it.

The papers are MFT. I used Lawn Fawn pierced rectangle and Memory Box music dies.  The lady was delighted with the card saying it is just perfect for her granddaughter. I am really enjoying using some of my old stamps.
