Face the music and dance

It's my turn to set the challenge at Daring Cardmakers this week.  I’ve chosen a music and/or dance theme — any type of music, any style of dance!

I’ve gone for the music bit of the theme. I wish I could claim my sketching skills were up to this standard but I actually did something different with a stamp! I used very light ink to stamp the image and then 2B and 4B pencils to turn it into a sketch. I think it’s worked to give a different sort of look. 

The fine frames circles die has always made me think of a vinyl record —clicking through for a bigger image might give a clearer impression why! I decided maybe she’s gone retro and raided her parents’ old record collection and placed die cuts to give her some background interest. With that thoughtful look I’m imagining she’s listening to some Joni Mitchell or maybe Carole King’s Tapestry.

That's a very clever way to get a brilliant sketch effect. Love it and your vinyl effect records xx
