In honour of the first Liverpool International Music Festival which runs from the 17th of August I have chosen as our theme inspired by song.
I know anyone who regularly reads my blog knows that I am a Beatles fan and George is my favourite so I couldn't resist creating this card in honour of George. Especially as he would have been 70 years old this year and the Internation Beatles week ( which is running alongside the International Music Festival) is honouring him with a special concert for his birthday..
As soon as I saw this image on the Dreams of Tranquillity CD it reminded me of a sunrise so what else could I choose but 'Here Comes The Sun'
I kept to the sunrise theme by using papers from the CD printed in soft lemons and peaches to make an Art Deco style background with the sunburst. Each panel was cut and distressed before being mounted onto black card and cut out to be assembled on an 8x8 card.
The image was also mounted onto black card and I picked out some of the flowers and shrubs on the image with flower soft to give texture and a 3D effect.
I added some butterflies punched out of black card and a greeting panel which is a quote which George used when he was speaking to fans after he had been attacked in 1999 he actually followed up the quote with the line 'And you better believe it folks' I added a little lotus blossom that I had made out of punched flowers to the bottom corner of the sentiment.
