Good morning everybody
This is my first post for Sentimental Sundays. I am so excited to be part of this team, and there are some great challenges coming up over the next few months which I am really looking forward to.
The prize for this challenge will be four individual sentiment sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection.
Please pop to Sentimental Sundays and have a look at all the fabulous pieces of work there, and don't forget that there are sentimental freebies offered as well - 5 this week, all worth having to embellish your projects.
The theme this week is Inspired by Song, which can give rise to many ideas, but also difficulties, which I had trying to choose between several that I wanted to use. We want to see your creations Inspired by Song, and make sure to include a sentiment. Also make sure to let us know how the song inspired your project.
Anyhow, my song is Tiny Dancer by Elton John, and friends know that I have been a lifelong fan of his music, It also seems appropriate to me that I have chosen an Elton John song, as I am going to see Elton John in Cardiff on Wednesday, with some of the best seats ever! I just hope my knee holds up, I don't think I can do any more damage than I have to it this week.
My main images are both digis, the dancer is from A Day for Daisies, and the piano from Stitchy Stamps. The piano key stamp is Clarity stamps, which I stamped and then embossed the black keys. The dancer is coloured with Copics, and then I have brushed distress inks around here. The sentiment is a The sentiment is one from the Raindrop Echo Whimsy Stamps range designed by Ann Vento. They are available here The background paper is Prima, as is the flower, which represents the flamboyant floral embroidery Elton John always has on the right sleeve of whatever he is wearing on stage.
