I have a card today that is not season related. It uses a great image from The Stampsmith - Billie Holiday. She was a jazz great. If you have never heard her sing, you are really missing some heartfelt vocals. So anyway, I used this image of her for my musical collage card.
There is lots of different DP on this card: Dk Brown from Crate Paper, Music from Penny Black, Brown/Turquoise from My Mind's Eye, Brown print from Provo Craft. The card base is from DCWV and is a coffee/mocha colored textured CS. I used a doubled sided Blue/Brown ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby, a hand pleated piece of black tulle, pearls, and rhinestones for embellishments. Here are some close ups.
I did lots of tearing and distressing with Vintage Photo (Ranger). The image is stamped with Tuxedo Black dye ink (Memento) on glossy white paper. I die cut and embossed the image with a Spellbinders die. The tulle is hand pleated and I just hand sewed the pleats in place and glued down to the card under the ribbon. This was a really fun card to make. I love the freedom of collage. I just like all the layers and different patterns. I think this is from my quilting days when I would use 5 to 10 different fabrics in one block. So fun!
Challenges Billie sings for:
Simon Says Stamp: Recipe- 3 types of embellishments (Ribbon, Tulle, Pearls).
Cheerful Stamp Pad: A woman
Anything Goes: ribbon
The Sisterhood of Crafters: Bling (pearls, rhinestones, and large earring on the image of Billie).
Well, I hope everyone is having a good day. We are having lovely cool weather here in Michigan. And, sunshine! Talk to you soon.
