I'm indebted to my friend Cath & her Inky Fingers for directing me to this blog. It's from the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge and this week the instructions are to take inspiration from Lady Gaga's Bad Romance video. How could I resist? I simply adore Gaga's music and performance art. Her contemporary style has me drooling over every visual delight she assails us with.
So I looked at the sample of stills supplied plus added one of my own to come up with this card. I've used red, white and black taken from the outfits worn. The blue-grey is from the background. The faux-crystal embellishments are inspired by the diamonds section and I've taken the vodka bottle as inspiration for the shape.
The "Dance" quote is from a Butterfly Kisses stamp set and seemed too darn perfect to pass up on using. And as always, I've kept the overall design clean and elegant whilst trying to throw some Gaga-esqueness in there.
