Music to My Ears

Hi Friends!  

I hope all of you are having a great week so far!  This card is a sneak peek of the new stamp set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps, Music to My Ears that will be released today and I paired it with the previously released sets, His Wings (Creative Worship by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps)  and Grunge Elements.

I love the background sheet music as well as the sentiments in the Music To My Ears stamp set and decided to create a vintage style card incorporating the FabFri93 Sketch Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers' MIX185 "Birds of a Feather" Challenge into the design.

 To create this card:

Ink the Music To My Ears background panel with archival black ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock.

Use a water brush to add “antique” the paper with distress inks- Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy over the entire panel and stamp the Grunge Elements splatter image with Vintage Photo.

Use a distressing tool along the edges and sponge additional Vintage Photo distress ink on the edges as well.

Cut the panel (per the sketch), mount onto black cardstock, trim and mount onto the white card base.

Heat emboss the sentiment from MusicTo My Ears with white embossing powder, the feathers and bird image from His Wings with black embossing powder and fussy-cut the feathers and bird.

Add a few white dots to one of the feathers with a Sharpie Extra Fine White Paint Marker.

To finish off the card, add the gold looped cord onto the card front, adhere the feathers and mount the sentiment with the bird image using dimensional foam. 

Thanks again for stopping by, I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!
