For Your Inspiration #36

Welcome back to the next For Your Inspiration challenge.  This will be our last challenge for a while.  Our team has decided to take a break until January.

You have two weeks to join this challenge and create a project inspired by this stunning photo:

Isn't it a beauty?  Reminds me of Ireland.

Here's my card which was completely inspired by THIS amazing card from Joan B.

  • I started by brayering ink from my Kaleidacolor "Pastel" ink pad onto glossy card stock.
  • After a bit of brayering I sponged yellow ink over the top half.
  • I then stamped the silhouette image in versamark and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I just love how it took on the darker colors.
  • Next, I stamped the sheet music score over the whole panel and wiped any ink off the silhouette.
  • Finished off with ribbon and tag punches folded around the edges.

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:   BG Basics: Sheet Music, Silhouettes (Inque Boutique)
Paper:   Cream, Black, Wild Wasabi (SU), Glossy
Ink:   Kaleidacolor Pastel, Buttercup (CTMH), Black (memento), versamark

What a great idea to have a range of coloured sponging behind the music. It looks so pretty.
