Hello my friends. I'm late on parade but blogger wasn't playing nicely for me. Yesterday was the start of another Fussy and Fancy Challenge.
Our host for this week is the lovely Tone and she chose the theme of Music. This is what she had to say:
Hello Fussy and Fancy Friends!
I am hosting the challenge this fortnight and I have chosen music as theme.
I guess we all, in some way, have some scraping stuff realted to music....like notes, «dancing» motives, instruments and so on.
Hope you enjoy the theme and I am so much looking forward to see all your great work.
We are being sponsored by Magnolia-licious.
I remembered I had some Tim Holtz Christmas kraft paper that had sheet music on it. I decided to use it and after I finished the first card I thought that it might look even better more distressed, so I made a second one.
So I cut the 6x6 sized sheet and started inking it. First I coloured the holly and berries with crushed olive, lucky clover and candied apple. On the background I used crushed olive distress ink and then vintage photo and walnut stain. This made the resist really pop.
Then I looked at the embellishments. I diecut holly leaves and pine branches from the Tim Holtz thinlets out of green and kraft card. The poinsettia is from spellbinders and is cut from pearlized card. I inked all the diecuts with walnut stain distress ink.
I added some natural twine to corner first and then assembled the leaves and flower. I then added berries and gypsophila from my stash. The sentiment was lying on my desk and I inked it with walnut stain.
Then i decided to make a second one, more distressed. So I stressed the edges before and after inking.
To distress further I decided to spaltter some paints on the background and the diecuts. I used picket fence and tarnished brass. The latter added a little shimmer to the card.
So now the verdict is in your hands. Which one do you like best?
I would love you to join us in this challenge. For further inspiration visit the main challenge blog here.
