My Nat'l Dance Day card

This week's challenge theme at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is "Dance" because tomorrow is National Dance Day. My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, Karen, Vannessa, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge.

Our July sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner three digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us for your chance to win!

Here's my card with one of the showgirls from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Show Stoppers set.

The showgirl was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts), colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edged with a black marker. A touch of blush was added to her cheek with palette chalks.

The background was created with the Take the Stage die set (Die-namics). The silky-looking paper is Shantung specialty paper by FiberMark. I edged the curtains with blue marker to add a touch of blue to the jade greenish fabric-finish curtains. The backdrop was adhered to brown cardstock andDimensional foam adhesive was used between the backdrop and curtains. The little tie-backs were included in the set. Aren't they cute?

When I was done putting the stage together, the showgirl was adhered, the piece was matted onto black cardstock, and onto a card front cut from Blue Quills, a feather-textured specialty paper (FiberMark). 

A scrap of the Shantung paper was die-cut with one of the banners from the Dimensional Banner die set (Die-namics). The sentiment was stamped onto the banner with Jet Black StazOn ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts) and heat set. 

Blue cardstock was die-cut with a ticket die (QuicKutz) and rub-ons (also by QuicKutz) were  used to add the sentiment. A white gel pen was used to add a bit of detail to it.

The ticket and the banner were added to the card front and the card front was adhered to a blue card.
