Do What you Love

Hello, I've not had much inspiration or time in the craft room lately, but as I've got four 'girly' birthdays this month, it's given me the push to get my act together and get organised.  As a little incentive to get  motivated, I bought this Dancing Woman stamp from Rubber Dance and she's been well inked this last week.

The card base had already been embossed with crackle paste through the Flourish stencil and was in the 'bits box' so I dipped it in Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber and Antique Linen DOX.  I used Brushed Pewter Distress paint and my trusty finger over the embossed cracks - which gave it a look of Mother of Pearl!  The stamped panel was a mop up piece, again in the bits box, that must have mopped up some Brushed Pewter stain along the way as it has a lovely sheen,  I used Worn Lipstick DI to emphasise her dress and Wilted Violet to the flowers.  The sentiment is computer.  I used a dull silver card to mat.

I am entering this at:
  Rubber Dance Forever Stamping Challenge - Anything Goes
  Rubber Dance - September colour challenge
 
 Challenge 1.-14. Sept.

Thanks for visiting and hopefully I'll get caught up on blog visiting over the weekend.

It looks like you've had great inspiration! The background is beautiful, lovely for the image. I know what you mean though, sometimes our creative mojo takes a vacation. Sometimes it's good to 're charge' :) I can't wait to get back into a proper craft room and have peace of mind again. Take care, Shirleyxx

Love the rosy glow of the colour palette, and that beautiful dancer is perfect for the uplifting feel of it. Glad to see she got your creative muscles back in action - I'm sure the card will go down a treat.
