With a Song in My Heart!

Our challenge for this next fortnight at The Creative Card Crew is to create a project which is song inspired.  the song that I have chosen is "What's new pussycat?" by Tom Jones

Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful Simon Says Stamp who has generously given a $20 prize to be spent in their store.  Some lovely goodies there, too :o)

Don't forget to check out my fellow teamies blogs as they have some wonderful designs to show you

When I cut out the bottom layer of the decoupage I left a narrow white border to set it off from the background

After I had embossed the textured card I rubbed away some of the colour using a very fine emery paper.  It's actually a mitt for rubbing away excess hair lol but I find it perfect for this.  When you see the technique being demonstrated a Dust Buddy is used to pick up the coloured powder and accentuate  the distressing.  I use a baby wipe that has dried out and it works just as well even if it is stained with the inks from the rubber stamps
