Muted Music card

I have another musical thank you card today; it is a repeating theme for me I know. The new feature on this one is my chalk ink sponged base. I tore my masks and positioned them around the edge of a white panel and then sponged the entire space with Tsukineko Wheat Versamagic Chalk ink. The effect is quite different from the Memento inks I have been sponging lately. The music and the flowers are stamped with Memento inks.

I am scheduling this for mid-week while I am by the lake. I look forward to catching up with all that you have been creating when I get back.

    I’ve been sponging and sponging and sponging . The tricks are many but such delight when I get it right. Now I have to practice layering so it doesn’t look like each layer is another mistake. 🙂

    This music card is so lovely!

    Thanks for inspiration.,
