TSC24 Ribbons and Lace

Do you remember Janis Joplin  belting out the tune  "Oh Lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz" with her unique raspy voice.
I was inspired by her uniqueness to create this card for The Stampsmith Challenge Ribbons and Lace.

I made a lace background using a piece of lace, sticker paper and glitter then added a piece of cardstock that I embossed with  Peace signs,  cut a Butterfly from a Spellbinders die and painted with Mica Paints from US Art Quest added some pearls, Flowers Soft an antenae. I stamped Janis with versamark on to hot pink and embossed with black embossing power.  I added two rows of funky ribbon, one velvet and one textured.  You can fine Janis along with Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon all on the Rock and Roll, sheet just click here.



                          Here is another take of the picture it  shows the detail in the lace.

Hi Linda
This is the first time I've seen anyone use Janis for TSC - so Bravo to you.
Love your interpretation of the theme I am hosting - going for the look of the era with your bright colours.
Thanks for outlining all the steps in the creation of your card.
Good Luck with the Prize Draw and hope to see you return on 1st December when our next theme will be announced.
