Default NOV08VSNE ~ FRI., Nov. 14, 10 pm EST ~ "Ladies & Gents: The Busby Berkeley Dancers"

Title: "Ladies & Gents: The Busby Berkeley Dancers"
Hostess: Kathy (kkrab5)
Keyword: NOV08VSNE
Day/Date: Fri., Nov.14
Time: 10:00 PM (EST)


I love old movies and musicals. And I love big, big dance numbers. What could be a better act for our cabaret than a dance routine created by director Busby Berkeley? This over-the-top choreographer would have been right at home on the cabaret stage--a cabaret stage on steroids! Berkeley used crowds of showgirls to form elaborate geometric patterns. The attached still is from the 1934 movie “Dames,” but to get the full effect and to get your creative juices flowing you should watch the entire dance routine here. (The dance routine starts at 4:10.)

My challenge is simple: create a card using a geometric design as the focal image.


UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST on SUNDAY, November 16th
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

This was tough for me, and I think I know how to improve on it, just dont have the brain to do so right now, but here goes. Plus I am finding this stamp set harder to use than I had planned.

I knew what stamp I wanted to use, but the challenge came in making it the focal point. Hope this works: Geometry in red and green

Nope, it was the June Taylor Dancers on the Jackie Gleason show. And since I know that (being the fount of useless TV trivia), I'm dating myself!!

Kathy,

Thanks for a really fun one.

Really enjoyed this and am happy with how my card turned out. Not the way I had originally planned it but better.

Here is my sparkly star 6x6 card. This only took me about 5 minutes to do since I already had the star done in my stash from last year. It took me longer to find the paper that I wanted!

I love geometric designs, but I had no idea what I wanted to do for this card lol. I finally got inspired by the Snow Swirled set. Thanks Kathy!
