Musical Notes

The object of this card was first to use a stencil and then to make it musical so it fits 2 challenges. Made for a personal challenge over at Stamp Buddies and also for the Double D Challenge Let’s make some music, http://daranddiane.blogspot.com/ Obviously I started with the stencil piece first and in an experiment I used Gesso and mixed in a small amount of blue alcohol ink and some blue glitter I had left over and wanted to finish. At first I thought it wasn’t going to work so before it was dry I added a bit more glitter in both blue and gold. When it dried however I realized that the original mix was actually quite nice. I cut the panel down just a bit and chose a navy CS for the card base. Then I took an old wooden block music stamp and some vellum and stamped it in versamark ink which I heat set with fine black detail EB. I attached this to the stencilled panel and then adhered everything to the card base. The little bird came from the Happy Spring set by GKD and I used copic markers to add colour after which I fussy cut him out. I added him to the vellum using dimensionals to lift him up.

I also stamped the bird on the inside of the card using pencils to add colour and used the sentiment from the GKD Snowbirds Stamp and die bundle set.
