Lili's Little Fairies (DT) Top of the Pops

Yep, it is Liliday again and this week it is the turn of Team B but I could not resist the LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES challenge which is Top Of The Pops - simply be inspired by a song title.  How much fun is that?  I had to restrain myself because even though I made two DT cards for this challenge, I had ideas for many more!

Sorry guys, there seems to be a delay in the challenge posting - hopefully it will be up and running soon for you.
 
So here we go then with card number 1


Song Choice - The Rolling Stones "Paint It Black"
I've used LOTV's Painting Puppy and painted him in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Black Soot, Festive Berries,
Aged Mahogany, Tattered Rose, Old Paper
Papers are from an old Dovecraft pack of black and white papers
Sentiment is from the LOTV Scroll Sentiments set
And of course a trio of Card Candi

And now to card number 2


Song Choice - Elvis Presley "High Heel Sneakers"
Stamped image is LOTV Puss In Boot and again painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Dried Marigold, Rusty Hinge, Tattered Rose, Tumbled Glass
Broken China, Gathered Twigs, Spun Sugar, Pumice Stone
Papers from an old pad of DCWV long since discontinued
Martha Stewart border punch
Tonic medium retro flower punch
Card Candi
Classic Oval and Scalloped Oval Nestabilities dies

I think this was one of the challenges that I have enjoyed most for a while - can't wait to see what you come up with.  Just remember to use an LOTV image (stamp or die cut) and let us know in your post which song inspired your make.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Love the black and white with splash of red card. Okay, I know the puppy is in browns, but since they are neutral they still make it seem like a black and white card.

Pauline C said...

2 fabulous cards dear. I've never seen the puppy with a paintbrush before ... How did I miss that little darling?. And the colour scheme is just perfect
