Choose to Dance

That song makes me choke up every time I hear it , but unlike most things that make me cry , I like it anyway. I'm usually against movies that make me cry though - I want laughter , violence - ANYTHING but tears!

I joined the ART Partners Challenge happening in Trends , and this is the card I've completed.

Each of the ten partners received a stamp and one embellishment to be used on the cardstock provide from Inkastamps , and this challenge will be continued monthly , limited to the first 10 to sign up for it. We were free to use any other embellishments we chose to , but no other stamps - so of course I promptly choked lol. It's HARD not to use any other stamps when somebody says you can't - who knew?! I couldn't even use other stamps from Inka , but I persevered and this is the end result. I used watercolors , water soluble crayons and mica powder to color the stamp , and adapted a technique of Beryl Taylor's for the body of the card. I was really pleased with the way it looked , especially for the first time around.

Time to fly - need to get a roast in the oven before we all go pouf! and disappear completely - both my son and I are hungry NOW.

Maybe I'll just eat him and solve both our problems lol.

postscript 2/28 - Hey , I won the challenge! Doin' the happy dance lol!
