Silence and Dazzle for The Craft Barn Q&L Challenge

Hi everyone, hope you are all warm and dry and not stuck in the terrible floods, it's dry here today but more rain is forecast.  Today I have my postcards for The Craft Barn Q&L Challenge, the words for this fortnight are Silence and Dazzle.  Working on 60's music I picked "Silence is Golden" sung by Frankie Valley  and the Four Seasons (1964), and "That Old Devil Moon" sung by Ella Fitzgerald (1969).

Silence is Golden
Music/Lyrics Bob Crewe/Bob Gaudio
Original 1963 Frankey Valley and The Four Seasons
Released 1967 by The Tremeloes who reached No1 in the UK charts

Silent movies came to mind for this postcard, I used Stampers Anonymous and Marriane stamps, downloaded a photo of Laurel and Hardy and splashed lemon juice onto my background and heated it to give the effect of the old celluloid film when it overheated and started to burn.

That Old Devil Moon
Music/Lyrics Burton Lane/E Y Harburg
From the 1947 musical Finion's Rainbow
Released 1969 by Ella Fitzgerald on the album "Sunshine of Your Love"

I used DI's for my background on this card, splattered white paint over it and dotted with glamour dust for the dazzle. The Sizzix movers and shapers moon was coverd with frosted crystal embossing powder and fixed with sticky fixers.

Really enjoying this challenge, will be over to see what evryone else has been up to over at The Craft Barn Challenge  later this week.

These are both lovely! The silent movie one is my favorite--cool lemon juice technique.

Both are very lovely and very different. Love the distressed look of the first make...looks like an old theatre program that's been found in someone's loft.
The second one is really dreamy and would look lovely in a nursery.

Great idea to add that picture of Laurel and Hardy. That's my favourite page, it has this humoristic touch, very well done!
