just dance

Good evening, my friends. I was going to post earlier this afternoon, but I could not get my photo to upload, because Blogger was doing some maintenance. Today's Hope challenge on SCS was a sketch with a twist -- the twist being that you needed to use dance related images. Well, I know that I have no such images in my arsenal. As I sat thinking about what I do have and how I could transform it into dance related, I remembered a fun SU set called Best of Cluck, and knew that I could make do.

I stamped the image on shimmery white cardstock with memento tuxedo black ink and colored it with copic markers. I stamped a 2nd portion of the chicken, so I could pop up the wing in front of the tutu. I added some glitter pen highlights. The tutu was made by gathering a piece of lace, which I colored with a copic marker. I poked holes in the cardstock next to the body of the chicken to run the thread through and then tied it at the back of the cardstock.

I cut the circles and squares with my cuttlebug and nestabilities (spellbinders). Before removing the image from the circle die, I sponged lightly around the image with cool caribbean. All of the layers are sponged with pacific point ink.

I printed the sentiment on my computer and added some sticky back jewels.

The circle panel is popped up on dimensional tape.

Thank you so much for stopping in today.
