Compendium of Curiosities, Challenge 17

This week Linda Ledbetter  (sponsored by Simon Says Stamp) has challenged us to get creative with Core'dinations card, as demonstrated in Sir Tim of Holtz's most excellent Compendium of Curiosities Volume II.
 I'm currently learning to tango, so it's not hard to guess where the inspiration for this project comes from!

I chose Mustard Seed Core'dinations card and Ripe Persimmon distress ink for this project.  The  silhouette and the "Tango" was cut on the Cameo.  I got a bit clever when embossing the background and double-embossed it so there's a narrow border around the edge of the Mustard Seed oval.  A black border and a turquoise background to help it "pop" visually ...and the job's a good 'un!

Now what will Linda be challengin us to do next week, I wonder?

Love what you have done here and it's great to hear you are learning to tango! Lovely dance to do (except if your other half has two left feet! LOL) Hugs, Buttons x
