I have always been influenced by music, right from my teenage crushes on David Cassidy and Donny Osmond! I met my husband and he is from a musical family, in fact he and his brother were singer/guitarists at the time, earning a living from performing whilst going through college. My husband is still very musically minded - he composes his own tunes and writes lyrics. We are surrounded by guitars - acoustic, electric, rhythm, bass, Hawaiian, 12 string, a banjo and a keyboard, not to mention all the percussion instruments that family and friends can play to join in. Then there are the concerts we love to go to.
My card today is more to do with how music makes me feel. I am moved emotionally by music - it can make me cry if it is classical or opera, or it can brighten my mood in any situation. I just can't help toe taping and moving when I listen to uplifting music and often will get up and dance around the room.
Here is my card using Luna Girls beautiful Dance collage sheet:
I chose an image of the 1883 Renoir painting called Dance at Bougival. It depicts a young couple dancing to music at an open air cafe in the countryside outside of Paris. You can see the cafe-goers in the background. I love the loose style of the Impressionists paintings.
The background was made by blending Oxide inks onto a piece of white card. I then stamped Sheet Music (KaiserCraft) and heat set with Hickory Smoke embossing glaze. Next I stamped the flowers (Vines and Roses by Stampers Anonymous) and heat embossed in white - I thought this would make a country style background fitting for the image.
The flowers and foliage were die cut and inked, in colours to compliment the image, and added with some lace to the bottom of the card. I distressed the edge of the background, the image and the kraft card mats and popped all onto a blank 5 x 7 inch white card. The sentiment was typed and printed, then cut into strips and inked.
We would love to see your creations!
