Beatlemania----Strawberry Fields Forever.

China Glaze makes a beautiful color called Strawberry Fields and I thought I would just show that for my Beatlemania theme but I couldn't.  I remember when I was young and was dating my first husband his brother would always ask me what do you want to listen to and I always said Blue Album from the Beatles it second album.  The first song was Strawberry Fields Forever.  Finally after about two or three weeks the dummy realized I was asking him to hear the same album over and over.  (When I say album, I mean album, no CD's had even been invented and the music industry was slowly weeding out albums).  We ended up getting married and the first cassette I bought was the Beatles Blue Cassette.  I was so sad because I played that cassette so  much I ended up warping it.  It never came out on CD.  There was a red album with the earlier music and that was released but not the blue one.  So, I ended up buying most of the CD's that made up the blue CD, now it has been released.  Go figure.  But anyway, I still listen to the Beatles almost everyday and thought that the only good thing about the opening ceremonies of the Olymics was Paul McCartney singing "Hey, Jude".  What was kinda sad that there were people who could not sing part of the song.  Am I really that old.  My kids know the Beatles.  Who can't sing Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, hey jude?  How hard was that?  I was saddend, but oh well we can't all be the same.  So here is Strawberry Fields Forever.

 My stamped version of Strawberry Fields

My stamped version


My last stamped version.

To do the stamped look I used Deborah Lippman's Almost Paradise then Bundle monster plate
bm05 for the strawberry and my DRK-A plate for the green that  looks like the fields.  I purposely made it a little abstract because the song is and I think I got the right effect.
Which do you like better the plain China Glaze or the stamped version?
