So the challenge this week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog was to do something artsy. The sentiment I used comes from a Shakespearean play so I guess that counts!
I am also entering this in the Hiding in my Craft Room Challenge - Freestyle.
I stamped the background and used Perfect Pearls to give it that nice shine and then spritzed with water to set it. I die cut the flourish that holds the sentiment and used more Perfect Pearls on it. If you look closely you can see that I stamped some music behind the sentiment. It didn't come out very well in the picture.
The card was looking a little dark so I added the segment of doily to brighten it up a bit. Then I layered on the sentiment and covered the bottom of the doily with some sparkly ribbon. I die cut the music notes, embossed them and sponged through the die to show the embossed areas. I attached everything to a white card base.
I used the following products:
American Crafts cardstock - Black and Turquoise
Perfect Pearls - Duo Green Yellow, Turquoise, Misty Lavender and Aztec Gold
Colorbox Ink - Ice
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Spellbinders Shapeabilities D-lites - Love Notes
American Crafts sparkle ribbon
Autumn Leaves Stampology Ink - Gold
