In the spotlight...

Hello friends!

Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday, I got too busy having fun on the 4th for any crafty time to be had. I'm back now though, with a dance inspired slimline card mixing and matching three ballerina stamps from Dreamerland Crafts. Because Who is my Loved One and When You Believe are both much larger than Dancing in the Stream, I played with perspective a bit by masking When You Believe then stamping Dancing in the Stream slightly behind her (first wiping the ink off of the water at her feet). This simple trick pushes the smaller dancer further into the background, making it natural that she would appear smaller than her friends. Once they were all in place, I simply colored in a wooden stage floor beneath their feet and three bright spotlights to shine down on each one of them. As I flipped through some stamps that were near my desk I spotted this sentiment from MFT and it couldn't have been more perfect. Some coordinating card stock for the base and this card was done!    

Well, thanks for dropping by and have a good one.  :)
