The idea is to CASE one of the SOAP cards that the Design Team have made over the last 4 days. Now, I hope this card qualifies because I've actually been inspired by 2 of the Design team. The first one is a card by Niki Estes and you can see that card by clicking on her name. I loved the stamped musical background that she made. The second card is by Tosha Leyendekker and you can see that one by clicking on her name. It's the second one in her post (loved the diagonal part).
So, that's the copy part over and here's the share everything. I used Tumbled Glass and Dusty Concord distress inks and randomly sponged a piece of paper. I let this dry completely before going on to the next stage.
Once the paper was totally dry, I took the 4 stave music stamp from the Waltzing Mouse Musical Backgrounds set and stamped it up in versamark then heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder. I stamped on stamp the 'right way up' then underneath I rotated the stamp by 180 degrees so that the stamp was upside down - it just gives the impression that the music is different (for those that can read music and are not looking too closely!)
I cut the paper to size and added some stickles glitter glue to the edges.
Next I cut a piece of parchment and stamped the sentiment from the Say It Loud set in Momento Ink. To say that I'm LOVING this set is a real understatement - I just can't stop using those sentiments at the moment.
I then put the card together wrapping the parchment around the music paper with a little lace added to the top and bottom of the parchment. This was backed onto silver mirri board and put onto the card blank. The final touches were a Prima flower and some punched leaves that were lightly distressed with walnut stain distress ink.
Hope you like it, and that it does qualify for the CASE competition because I really had fun making this one.
This card also fits the following challenges:
Speedy the Cats - Flowers
Our Daily Bread - Sentiment Only
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
Stampinsanity - Anything Goes
I'll be back sometime tomorrow with either my Less is More or my WMSC card.
Thanks so much for looking,
