TCCCB Inspiration - Inspired by a song

Todays inspriational post uses Lil Jil 123 Dance from DS4J

I was an 80's girl
My inspiration is David Bowie - Lets Dance (she even has red shoes on!)
with a Madonna 80's twist ....

I used my polychromo pencils again to colour this fantastic image from DS4J 


Skin -  Lyra medium flesh, light flesh
Hair - Lyra brown ochre, Dark sepia

Shoes - Lyra Rose Carmine, light Carmine
Skirt - Derwent pink, Lyra Rose Madder Lake
Leggings - Lyra blue Violet
Top - Walnut Hollow blue, Lyra Dark orange, orange yellow, light green

I used backing papers from my stash (would have been free in a craft magazine)
Nestie dies for the toppers
Some ink netting from my stash with I gathered up with a running stitch in navy thread
Letters for sentiment are a free Tattered Lace Alphabet die off their magazine

This was great fun to create (even if the music wasnt my cup of tea back then - yes I was into heavy metal!)

I hope it inspires you to pop over to the TCCC blog and share your projects.

Kind regards
