The Craft Barn Song Challenge - Summer in the City

For this month's Craft Barn Song Challenge I've taken two lines from the given song "Summer in the City" as my inspiration -

Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night

I wanted to create the effect of psychedelic strobe lighting for my background - did we have that sort of lighting back in 1966, I can't remember! So I had some messy fun creating a bleeding tissue background on a piece of watercolour card and then added the swirls with homemade texture paste coloured with a drop of Dylusions ink spray. I drew around the Andy Skinner girl mask onto black card, cut out it out and added a little pencil shading to ground her once she was glued to the background. I punched a few stars and finished my postcard by adding the song title and the name of the band.
