Musical thanks

As I have said before on this blog we often have need of musically themed cards in this house.  This one is made using the Penny Black music background stamp which I love because it is big and the music can cover a whole card base if necessary. For this card I just stamped it in grey on a panel and then used marker to ink the iris stamp. Before stamping it I spritzed it with water so the image would “bleed” a little then finished the panel off with some sponging and a sentiment.

Several people have asked what I use for sponging; I cut circular sponges into quarters which you can see in my sponging tutorial post here.

Thanks for dropping in today; I hope you have a great week.


Stamps: Music background, Irises (Penny Black), Kind Thanks (SU)
Inks:  Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green, Going Gray (SU)
Cardstock: MFP 100lb white, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant

    How beautiful this is Heather! I like the purple tones you’ve used and the spritzing has really softened the background.

    I like that you muted the background, but didn’t make it brown, like so many do. Very pretty card.

    Heather, the flowers look wonderful against the musical background.
