This week's new challenge is just starting at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week the theme is MUSIC.
The background card I have used is the very last sheet* of a gorgeous pack of card I bought many years ago, at the Eden Project in Cornwall of all places! The wonderful swirly effect is made with coffee grounds embedded in the fabric of the card. The sheet music is a Kanban stamp and the collage and sentiment are from a sheet of clear stamps I bought from Create and Craft, sorry, can't remember the name or manufacturer. I coloured it with a mixture of Promarkers, pencils, distress ink and a gold metallic gel pen.
It all looked a bit too brown, and the stamped pieces threatened to merge into the background, so I added music and lattice die cuts in black - the lattice picks up on the diamond patterned area of the collage.
*last minute update - Happy Dance! I was looking for some card for another project and I found another sheet of this gorgeous card, so it's not all finished yet after all!
I would like to share this with:
C.R.A.F.T - inspired by a film (bit of a cheat, really, as the film Beethoven is really about a dog - but the name's the same!)
