Dancing Queen Sneak Peek

Please click HERE for my Papernest Dolls Blog Hop Post.

Morning everyone, I'm here today with a Sneaky Peak from Lili Of The Valley, using the new Vintage Autumn Basics papers by Maja Design from Live and Love Crafts.

I was born September 1976, and the song that was number 1 in the UK charts when I was born was Dancing Queen by Abba, so this had to be one of the first ones that I coloured from this collection.

I've coloured Dancing Queen with Distress Markers. There is glamour dust and aged silver frantage around the image too. I've used a Go Kreate die to shape the card, this one was the biggest one that fits through the cuttlebug.

There are links to everything at the end of the post, have you seen the gorgeous new colours of frosted berries that Sandy now stocks? The papers are from the 6x6 paper pad of the Vintage Autumn Basics, the edges have been distressed with Walnut Stain and a Tim Holtz tool and then I've dabbed picket fence crackle paint here and there too.

  2. Hi Becky,

    I love this card. Its stunning. Your work is a constant inspiration to me.

    What die did you use exactly? I didn't realise you could get any to fit the cuttlebug?

    Many thanks
