Default Elegant ballerina, modern or tap dancer/dancing stamps

My eldest will receive her 15 year award for dance this June. I'm thinking of creating a scrapbook with pictures throughout her dancing years but am at a loss when it comes to finding ballerinas not en pointe, elegant modern/jazz dancers and tap dancers.

Her stint on pointe shoes lasted one year; she got ill, sprained ankles and never got back on them again - I do plan on 'stealing' them and getting them preserved for her. A dance boutique near us does a wonderful job.

Does anyone have any ideas, suggestions for finding elegant dancing stamps, sort of similar to some of the nice stamps I've seen of ballroom dancers?

Here is one from the addicted to rubber stamps site:
http://www.addictedtorubberstamps.co...U=6-758-447953
It's by Ducks in a Row.

there is a brushstroke style dancer here:

by Uptown Design company

Just For Fun has a couple of Degas style ones:

I have a small collection of dance-related stamps myself, many of them found on ebay (try searching not just ballet, but also ballerina, dance, dancer, dancing, etc).

Most in my collection I am not willing to part with, but if you are interested perhaps we could arrange something where I send you some images stamped on cardstock, and you send me something in return - other stamped images or something like that. Private mail me if you are interested. I also have a number of dance related quotes that might be useful for a scrapbook.

Sounds like a lovely project for your daughter!

One more thought - there is a Stampin Up set called "En Pointe". Despite the name the ballerinas are not up on pointe. One seated on the floor does appear to be wearing pointe shoes, the other one (standing at the barre) doesn't look to me to be particularly on pointe.

Here is a link to it for sale on eBay - I don't know if it is retired or not.

Hope that helps!

I have two ballerinas similar to the Degas dancers but it's in my line of new images that won't be out until January.

If you do a Search for "Ballet" and also "Ballerina" on the www.stampfrancisco.com website, you'll find quite a few in different styles of drawing.

I saw a neat thing in a book on scrapbooking. The lady used a large, very lightened (washed out looking) photo of her daughter's ballet toe shoes. She used it as a guide to paint it with watercolors and pastels. It was a very lovely companion page to photos of her daughter.

hugs!
