New FB Challenge at The East Wind

Hi all. It's time for a brand new contest on The East Wind Facebook group. The theme this time around is It Started With a Song so we want to see your art using an image from The East Wind which has been inspired or relates to a song. Please be sure to tell what song got your mojo going.

The song that inspired me is an oldie but goody called Already Gone by the Eagles. The image that I chose to star on the tag it inspired is called Lucy Loo Voyage. With Lucy Loo's attitude , it seemed to fit the lyrics. I coloured Lucy with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. The dots for her shoe buttons and earrings were created with silver gel pen. She was then fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and matted with black cardstock. Foam tape was adhered to the back to add dimension and shadow when she was added to the tag.

The background began as a #10 manila tag which was covered with black cardstock. A section of MME's Traveler designer paper was added to the middle of the tag. Titan Buff paint was mixed with embossing paste and scraped through TCW's Mini Netting stencil in 3 places. In order to give Lucy a place to sit, a strip of black cardstock was added near the bottom of the designer papet. To tie in with the pink of her jacket, three lengths of washi on cream paper were added to the sides of the tag.

The sentiments were computer generated and printed on cream cardstock. The bottom one was die cut and both were matted with black cardstock to help them pop against the background. They were also popped up on foam squares. The shank was cut off the back of the metal plane button and it was attached to the cheesecloth "cloud" with Glossy Accents. The topper was created with text printed ribbon attached to the tag with a brad.

Thanks for visiting today. Lucy Loo and I are happy that you came by. When you get a minute, pop over to The East Wind Facebook group to see the other wonderful creations by some of our DT. We would love it if you joined us in this contest.

Life is good; so is art.

Bonnie I just love how you did the background with the postage stamp theme tying in lovely with the travel theme.
