Just a Note – Music



This lovely music die is one of the new “goodies” in my stash. When I saw the Addicted to CAS challenge, I had the perfect way to use it.

I decided on a totally different look  on the background which looks really pretty and delicate IRL.  It started with smooshing some Spun Sugar Distress Ink which had been sprayed with pearlised water.  Small roses from Altnew’s Painted Flowers were then stamped in the same colour randomly over the area.  They are almost ghosted. I picked out the flowers with a light wash of colour followed by some Wink of Stella to make them stand out just a little more.


The white die cut using Couture Designs – Musical Notes was also covered with Wink of Stella.

The sentiment from Kaisercraft – Keepsake Stamp Set , ( a new set I picked up on sale before Christmas), was stamped in Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
