Dancing On

A dear friend wanted a card made and began telling me a story about a loved daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend. She loved music and dancing, and my friend wanted to know whether I could make something with Beautiful You.

As she spoke I envisioned this card and could hardly wait to take up ink and stamps to see if it would come together, as I imagined. The dancing girl was stamped first and then masked before I randomly inked up Sheet Music and stamped diagonally across.

 Once the images had dried I set to work with Stampin' Blends in shades of blue, beige and grey. It seemed to meet my friend's expectations, and I really think these commission pieces are much easier to work on when you hear a little about the person.

It inspired me to continue on and make my spare image into a card there and then (instead of cooking dinner!) and you can see that one here.
