Burlesque Mashup

I loved Holly's inspiration for this week's Friday Mashup challenge, the upcoming movie Burlesque. Now, although I'm unlikely to run out to see this movie, visually it would be very appealing. In fact, I do have Moulin Rouge in my DVD cabinet for that reason. So I had to play along, not only with the color challenge but also the burlesque theme.

The main image was based on a vintage ATC I made some time back. I white-embossed the background with En Francais and sponged with Melon Mambo. I added some stitching to give it a little more vintage/textile feel.

Stamps: Artistic Etchings, Timeless Treasures, Rustic Rooster, En Francais BG; Paper: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Welcome Neighbor DSP; Ink: Basic Gray, Versamark; Accessories: White embossing powder, Sponge, Raven black lace, Black ribbon, Button, Linen thread, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Sewing machine, Thread.

Edit to add, my submission won! I get to be a guest designer next week. Don't forget to play along with me!

Thanks for stopping by!
