Dance me to the end of love

This Leonard Cohen song was my inspiration for a long long time. I am an addicted folk dancer and both I and my DH dance more than a decade and I am talking addiction (2-3 times a week for 4-5 hours and sometimes the whole day marathon).  Then I thought those old vinyl record  need to be altered and then I found this Graphic 45 set of paper I never used, as I was keeping it for some music project. And bingo- here was my title, products and inspiration born.
I really love this classic shabby project and hope you do too.

It's a Mixed Media altered project: I stamped over the record with Prima  music stamp, clear embossed  with Wow Clear glossy regular embossing powder with a heat gun. All record edges were heat embossed with  Wow Gold  Rich embossing powder and I even gold embossed those buttons I got as FB win from Blumenthal  Lansing button company (thanks, and I actually got 4 pounds of heart buttons for my next 100 years of crafting). Another Rak used here was a red ribbon and Heart doily from the most gorgeous win on Scrap it girl (again, I have hearts for the next 20 years to craft with- thanks a lot). Some red " blood" drops were made with Creative Inspirations Garnet paint.

As for other products:
Flowers- Prima and " late" Sassafrass
Letters: Prima , MM and fabric red ones from Paper Studio
Ribbons: Webster, Maya Road  and Prima
Punches: Martha Stewart
And a special award to MELODIA old (45 years old) record my DP brought from a former USSR and  never used since early 80th.
So here are lyrics from this song- you need to read to understand the state of mind I was during my craft.
And some challenges too:
Hearts for Artistic stamper
Pinterest inspiration for Clearsnap- I used their Frsot white for stamping over the record and Browns for diestressing (chalks )
Lace for Creatalicious
 Anything with ribbon for Pretty little ribbon shop
 Love for Scrap it girl
Ribbon and bling for True madly crafty challenge
 Love for Totally gorjuss
Distressed for Southern girls
Linking party of Passionatly artistic
