Is anyone heading out to celebrate tonight? We normally stay at home on New Year's Eve, and have an early night, but this year we are going for dinner at a friend's house, so I've had a nice quiet morning of crafting in the hope that I'll have conserved enough energy to keep me awake until midnight. Wherever in the world you are, and whatever your plans for celebrating, a very Happy New Year to all of you and may 2017 be all that you could wish for.
Now on to the card:
I masked a square in the middle of the card, lightly inked two sides with grey ink and then stamped the music (an old Kanban stamp), gently dabbing a coarse sponge over the right hand (after stamping) side of the image before stamping, in the hope of making it look as if the ink was fading away towards the right.
The sentiment is from an old set of word stamps, I can't remember where they came from, with a piece of masking tape covering the words "to say" while inking the stamp.
The topper is layers of the same die cut, white, then black then silver. I added the black layer so that when viewed from a slight angle there appears to be a shadow to throw the music into relief.
