Hokey Pokey Dancer

Hi Y'all,
This weeks Created Byhand Challenge is to use Dancing Shoes/Vintage. I immediately thought about my Hokey Pokey stamps. Here's what I created:

The dancer and saying (After Midnight) were stamped and embossed on white cardstock. The dancer was colored with Twinkling H2O's Baby's Breath, Jasmine and Wisteria. It was cut out using Spellbinders Labels Five. The saying was cut out using Spellbinders Labels Fifteen. Both were stippled with Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid.

The background was created using a thick restaurant napkin and Radiant Rain Pink Azalea. I spritzed the napkin with water and daubbed on the Radiant Rain. When dry I tore out the size of background needed.  One of the images from Quietfire Designs Flourishes 1 was stamped all over the background with Brilliance Pearlescent Purple. A light pink top fold basecard was created using Spellbinders Labels Eight.

One of my youngest cats is named Hokey Pokey and she does the dance quite often, purring madly as I sing the song for her.

Thanks for stopping by.
