Putting my "TWIST"

...on an Altered Postcard.

"Save This Dance"

Inspiration:
I'm not saying who the recipient is, (it goes postal tomorrow) but she inspired me to make my very first attempt!

Dimensions:
5.5" x 3.5"

The process:
I first layered two pieces of heavy cardstock, placing a print of a vintage postcard on the back and layering the front with torn pages from a phone book that were covered with distrss ink. I made the label here. Added images of a dance ticket, my favorite actress, Olive Thomas as well as the vintage keyboard diagram. Lastly, I added 2 Prima flowers with a brad, touches of goldleaf and a high gloss glaze.... with more to come!

She's beautiful! The red background has such a wonderful texture and really compliments the softness of your lady. Great job!

This is my first time to visit your blog. I'm going to add you to my list of links so that I'll be able to find you again in the future.

Hugs,
