Dogs and dances


Golden Retriever GG0059 and Flourish die PPRS D045

It's time for a new challenge at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges where Viv has chosen the them eof Face the Music and Dance and as always there is a chance to win $20 stamps of your choice from FlonzCraft. And as it's Monday I also have my Prickly Pear and Nicecrane DT shares.

The top one for Prickly Pear uses the lovely Golden Retriever which I have lightly coloured with watercolour pencils........as we all know I don't do colouring in too well so kept it simple........some DP from stash and a flourish using a new die from PPRS.


For my first FlonzCraft card I used some of the brand new Design Papers together with the Tango Dance couple paper piecing the ladies dress with the reverse of the floral DP, some punched flowers and Prickly Pear flourish, the same one as in the above card.


And this is my take on a Victorian Dance Card, I am not totally convinced the couple above fit into the same era but there is a waltz in there so with a bit of artistic licence I am linking the two.

I created an aperture in a panel which I also embossed and then rubbed with gilding wax and placed a FlonzCraft image into the aperture. I printed the dance list on the computer and stamped around the edges with a FlonzCraft Baroque corner and finished with some liquid pearls, tassel and beads.

I hope you all have a good week.

Karen Petitt said...

Apologies for being so late Brenda. I have been scratching my head about an entry for the Face the Music and Dance when I remembered I have some La Blanche ladies and one of those is holding a 'dance' card. I planned to make a larger dance card - rats there goes that idea lol! Will have to think of something wonderful and different now lol!
All of these are wonderful - the dog stamp is really cute and reminds me of Buddy! Hope you are okay, sending you gentle hugs Karen xx

Donna Ellis said...

what a great idea to create the old "dance card" with your vintage cards. Even the dog card looks like it is dancing with the flourishes, Brenda. Hope you are doing well - I am thinking of you. hugs, de
