Musical wishes

   A few months ago I was invited to be a guest designer for Chocolate Baroque. I used some of their older stamps to create this card. 

            I cut  a square of Neenah card and about 4cm in from the edges in pencil lightly drew a square of side 8cm. Around this on each side I stamped the floral spray image from Chocoalate Baroque's floral bouquet set judging where the end leaf and the beginning of the spray were. I then rubbed out the pencil lines and cut out a square around the image. This had a side of about 13.5 cm.

         I then stamped the violin, from Chocolate Baroque's music fanfare set in the centre of the design and coloured it using Promarkers. Using distress inks I added colour to the background and then matted and layered the design onto lilac mirri card and white card. Finally I added the dry transfer lettering in a wavy line to imitate floating musical notes.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
     Scribble and Scrap - anything goes
       Crafty Catz - birthday celebrations
       Creative Fingers - anything goes
