"I hope you dance..........."

Here is my take on the "Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge" #59. The sketch and challenge details can be found HERE. Lately I've been seeing lots of beautiful creations featuring vintage photos. I didn't have any of my own so I improvised using an old dance picture of my daughter Kay. I changed the hue and saturation in Photoshop creating a more sepia/vintage look. After printing the new image I cut it out using an oval nestie. I then applied several layers of "UTEE" to simulate the cracked glass look. Delicate patterned papers and bling pulled the sketch together.

The details:

Paper:          SU Pink Pirouette, DCWV "Be Mine " collection and the "Luxury Stack", Memory Box "Gossamer" collection.

Ink:              Ranger Distress Ink "Vintage Photo, "Spun Sugar"

Other:          Roses from "Wild Orchid Crafts" ( airbrushed with copic makers E21 and RV32, Lace trim from Joanne Fabrics, MS glitter (dance shoes), Recollections crystal swirl, UTEE,

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT week!
