Our Hearts Speak, Inspirational Quote # 3, 26/100



Here is my card for Inspirational Quote #3, and boy is it different from what I usually do!  Here is the quote I chose for my inspiration:

“To watch us dance is to hear our hearts speak.”

~ Indian Proverb

I have had this bare rubber Dancing Lady stamp for several years and have never used it and knew I wanted to use it for this challenge.  The color palette came from a Mola I have hanging in my studio.  I bought it when I was in Panama in 1978 and I still love the vibrant colors.  I also made this card for today’s Technique Lovers Challenge on Splitcoaststampers, TLC380 ~ Either/Or, but Both is More ~.  I chose to do the See Through Image technique for this card.

The brayered background was a leftover from a card I made in Sept. 2009 using Dusty Durango, Summer Sun and Old Olive, guess it was about time to put it to good use!  I stamped and embossed my image in black and colored it with Yo Yo Yellow, Tangerine Tango, Green Galore and Tempting Turquoise markers.  I centered my image on a Nestabilities die that was a bit smaller and traced around it.  Using a combination of craft knife and scissors, I cut out all but the stamped image.  I cut an oval mat in Real Red and layered it over the brayered background.  I cut a black mat and mounted it on a black card base.  I used a leftover piece of the brayered background, stamped the sentiment and cut with a Stampin’ Up! Sm Oval punch and layered over a Real Red mat cut with a Stampin’ Up! Lg Oval punch.  Even though this card is a huge departure from my usual style, something about it speaks to me.
