Oh Boy! What A Party!

From my blog post you might think that I am having a roaring good time...the truth is things here are pretty quiet. Except for my 200 + followers, I've just been creating.

I made this card for The Stampsmith Challenge  TSC15 Birthdays, thought I'd try a new color combo for me being Black, Cream and Magenta. I do think it works, do you? I made the three stamped pieces first... Happy Birthday, The Dance Steps-Inkadinkado and the Oh Boy-Inkadinkado, by stamping, coloring and putting them on magenta or black paper. The ladies face-Hero Arts was stamped on an acrylic tile and colored with alcohol ink and for the flesh tone......I used nail polish! I layered all these pieces on vintage music sheets then added black german scrap from Artchix Studio for shine. The finishing touch were  the sparklie black and magenta layered sequins with a black brad center.

Hope you will dance up a storm this week,
sincerely, gerri
