Wow these fortnightly challenges over at The Craft Barn are passing so quickly, we have "knowledge" and "Hurt" as the key words this fortnight. Hurt was an easy one, lots of 60s songs about being hurt and broken hearted! Knowledge was a little harder, I came up with a Diana Ross and The Supremes number from their album Let The Sun Shine In.
Here they are "The Composer" by Diana Ross and The Supremes written by Smokey Robinson, released in 1969 as a single and featured on their album Let The Sun Sine In, and "Anyone Who Had a Heart" by Cilla Black 1964 which charted at No1 in the UK, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.
This card was stamped and white embossed with a bird cage and music, music tape added and the background coloured with squeezed lemonade and evergreen bough. Added some black stamping, a little stenciling and the lyrics. Picked the yellow and green as my son informed me they were good colours for learning and stimulating the mind, fitted well with knowledge.
This card was covered with fairly thick white acrylic paint for some texture, added two Memory Box dies (chloe stem) were added and painted over them again with acrylic paint, the background hearts were a stencil I made myself. The large heart was coloured red, covered in Cromer Crackle and when dry rubbed with silver treasure gold. The lyrics were added and a small heart to finish off. The background was coloured with distress inks in broken china, the hearts fired brick.
