Theater of my heart

I guess I am still in a neutral mood with this card for Retro Cafe Art. I do so love the way the simple palette of black and cream or the black and white look. It is especially wonderful for stamping, giving it a great punch for the image.

It was this RCA Steampunk heart stamp that was the inspiration of today's piece. It was stamped on transparency, one of my favorite methods. Well, the background is printed paper with music notes. Layered on that was  a piece of old lace, the black paper heart edged with cream paint and the Debrina Pratt ATC Theatre image from Retro Cafe Art. The Steamy (punk) heart completed the layers. A rosette in the corner was made up of lace, music paper and a tiny light bulb wrapped in waxed thread. The finishing touches were the black German Dresden foil edge and the sentiment that reads "Theater of my heart light up the night.".

Hope you will light up the night this week.
take care, gerri
