In the pink


I seem to have accidentally made a one layer card when I didn't have to!!!

The keyboard and treble  clef stamps on this card are from an old Kanban stamp set and the words from a set that I bought years ago from QVC, I can't remember the brand name but it has a rather lovely collage of Beethoven on it and some music related sentiments. I  arranged the words, meant to surround a circle,  like this around the keyboard to give some counterpoint to the movement of the image - it was only after stamping that I realised it is also reminiscent of a sideways treble clef, so there's a lot of subtle music reference going on there.

Once the stamping was complete I masked off the keyboard and most of the card to give a rectangle and sponged it with several shades of pink ink, using deeper ones towards the edges.

I am sharing this with

  1. Oh Jane, what a stunning clean and simple card! I love the counterpoint of movement between the undulating piano keys and the sentiment. What a clever idea, and so effective. Keeping it to one layer and just using the black and sponged hot pink makes this card stand out beautifully. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  7. Fabulous movement from your image and sentiment, and gorgeous in that bright pink. QVC was where I started with my stash too, still have all sorts of bits from previous kits!

  11. One layer and CAS cards are two of the hardest for me and here you've combined both to make a beautiful and memorable birthday card. Well done Jane! Love how you used the pink for the background to make these musical notes standout and add a feminine feel to it. Thanks for sharing with us at the Watercooler Wednesday Feminine Challenge this week.
