Another Thank you card with a Musical Theme

I have another of the thank you cards I made to be used at my daughter’s violin concert on Saturday. After making the first one I decided to make the remainder of the cards unique but stick with the same few stamps. To create this card, I started  by stamping the music background  but in versamark so I could emboss with gold powder. I sponged over the embossing with three memento inks and added a few water droplets before stamping the winter-scroll several times.

Tonight my older daughter is playing violin with the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra for the first time. We are thrilled for her as you can imagine.

I have received many requests for a video tutorial showing how I do the snow covered trees and snow drifts. I will try to do something soon. With the big concerts over I may have a little more time. I do have several photo tutorials which cover these techniques if you want to check them out while waiting patiently for me to oblige!

    Beautiful work as always, I will look forward to those video tutorials when you can do them and watch the ones you listed in the meantime.

    Congratulations to you and your daughter on her big news of playing with the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra, that is a tremendous honor as well as achievement! I hope it is a wonderful and magical evening for all of you.

    As ever, such a beautiful & elegant card. Very formal & just what I’d think would be appropriate for such a solemn occasion. How wonderful for you to have such talented daughters who are so honored in their fields of endeavor. Will be looking so forward to the video tutorials when you have the time (and not sure how on earth that you DO have the time!LOL). TFS
