Music and Flowers

I got little bits of time here and there to stamp this weekend. This started as a birthday card for my mother-in-law, but it turned out not to be her style. (So I will try again tomorrow).

I played some more with Tim Holtz Distress Inks--mostly Broken China and Peeled Paint. They coordinate well with Taken with Teal, Cool Caribbean, Old Olive and Certainly Celery (yeah--my favorite combo).

Music and flowers

I stamped the flower (Queen Anne's Lace) on the main image three times (misting after each stamping) on watercolor paper. Then I stamped the music staff slightly above/overlapping the flowers). The edges of the main image and the patterned paper were sponged with Old Paper.

The mat was spritzed with a Broken China-Perfect Pearls (copper)-water spray and then edges were sponged with Broken China. Then dotted with Liquid Pearls (baby blue).

The hinges are Grungeboard painted with a Copper Adirondack Paint Dabber then a Willow Paint Dabber. I filled the holes with the Liquid Pearls.

The patterned paper (Paper Loft from Hobby Lobby) is stamped with Baroque Motif (stamped off) and misted with the Broken China mist.

The black base was stamped with the music staff inked with VersaMark and clear embossed.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for stopping by~
