Silhouetted Shadow

Leonie's Fab Friday Challenge #8 - music for the heart.

The music bit of this challenge gave me the inspiration as my husband is more musical than me. When he was 'nowt but a lad' he was lead guitarist in a 'mock' Shadows band called the 'Silhouettes. Being the lead guitarist meant he played the music Hank Marvin performed. This ATC is based on all of that. The base is a photo of my husband which I have overlayed with an acetate photo of Hank. I used alcohol inks to distress the base photo and colour the charms. The bits of print are simply from Word, again distressed but with Tim Holtz distress ink pads this time. I found this ATC hard to photo so I hope you can understand it.

I had fun again!

Very clever idea - brilliant play on the name of his band too :o)
