OK I really hope this will past for my unique way for Easter! I had initially read the challenge at Fluuter by Wednesday to use Buttons and bows which actually are 2 of my least favourite since I am not a button gal (looks great on other peoples' cards but when I do it , I just don't like it) and bows...'cos I suck at making them. I was inspired suddenly by the song "Buttons and Bows"...
"East is East and West is West
And the wrong one I have chose
Let's go where they keep on wearin'
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
Rings and things and buttons and bows..."
The song continues (by Livingston and Evans) and it won the Oscar for best song. It was in the movie "The Paleface" by Bob Hope and Jane Russell. I thought it perfect since we lost a legend(not just Elizabeth Taylor) this year when Jane Russell passed away. This is a very funny film with her and Bob Hope. I have books by the Great Al Hirschfeld. I LOVE his artistry. He could create the essence of a famous person with a flick of his pen. I did not trace! I looked at the picture (there was a whole scene in the picture but I just chose these 2 images) and then started to draw. Iused my tombow markers to fill in and then mounted it on different cardstock, added the butterfly, bows and buttons! Have a great day!
