What's with the title?...you ask. Every Tuesday evening I lip-synch in the company of some very talented singers. And yesterday was a particularly interesting session worthy of mention on my blog. Why? Because we did a South African spiritual in Zulu (oh yes!) called "Uyingcwele Baba".
Zulu is NOT an easy language....trust me! It's riddled with clicking and clucking, which if not done properly sound like snorting .... not good for choral singing! To make matters worse, this is an action song requiring synchronised clapping, swaying, stomping and other fancy footwork which left us completely out of breath and totally off-key. I have a new found respect for traditional African dances. At the end of this post, I've included a little YouTube of what we aspire to sound like by next week!
Now on to my card - I'm having another go at CAS. It took me a while but I got there in the end. I'm hoping my friend Sandie will see some improvement on my part. The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches #171.
|No patterned papers, no stiching, no layering...nada! I simply used the snowflake stamps from WMS Compliments of the Season and Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink to create the background.|
|I stamped the sentiment on the inside to be seen through the acetate. 3 clear bling... is that too much?|
|And here's the inside. It is not easy to photograph acetate. The glare is a nightmare...see that streak at the top? Ggrrr!|
Thanks for stopping by. I'll leave you with a professional rendition of "Uyingcwele Baba". Enjoy!
