"Let's Dance" Some More

The Cheerful Stamp Pad is continuing with the challenge "Let's Dance.   Scroll down to the post announcing the challenge and enter your creation.  The Design Team would love for you to enter.


This is my inspirational piece for this week for the Let's Dance challenge which is being sponsored by A Da;y for Daises.  I used the ballet shoes and embellished   my card with a border punch and stones.  If you haven't joined in, scroll down to the challenge announcement below and enter.


Such a beautiful image, this time paired up with a couple other stamp companies to make this card. A rhinestone and glitter were the finishing embellishments. Shoes from Stubby Stampers, Music sheet is from Stamp Out Cute.


I colored these ballet slippers from A Day for Daisies with pencils and layered them with various elements from my stash. Though I never studied ballet myself, I love studying different forms of dance.  The dance images from this company are truly endearing.

Those ballett shoes are another gorgeous image from our sponsor. They remind me so very much of my daughter and her ballett lessons! The background for the image are digital papers. Shoes, leaves and rose are coloured with Copics and paper pieced to give it a bit more depth. Lace, pearls, heart and a die-cut ballerina are the finishing touches.

I used dramatic colours to portray the moment when the curtains open, the music starts to play and the first steps are made on the dance floor. I hope my card inspires you to join in the challenge!

I've used this gorgeous ballerina image again to make a "row" of dancing girls along with patterned paper from Fringe Arts at Etsy - couldn't resist using the same colour scheme as last week! Card layout is from Tuesday Morning Sketches.
