When words fail......Music Speaks.......

Good morning!

Well, I am now on my hollybobs and I've been a busy bee scheduling all my blogs for you for while I am away.

Over the next two weeks I shall be sharing some of my makes that I have made over the past couple of months for friends and family - most of these cards have been given but thought it would be nice to still share them with you to "fill in" the gap while I am away.

Here is a card that I have made for a friends teenage son - hope he liked it!!!!!!

All the stamps on this project are from Visible Image and I had lots of fun!!!

I started by using a piece of watercolour card stock and stamped the guitar and covered it with drawing gum and the words around it too.

Armed with two colours of Brushos (I love Brusho's - you never really know what effect you are going to get!) I spritzed that background straight over the top of the covered guitar.  The next move was to stamp the musical notes so that the stamp covered across the guitar and over the top of the drawing gum that was on it at this stage still.

The figure of the man with his guitar was stamped next in black archival ink and then the sound waves were stamped in blue archival ink.

"Rock Out" was last and then I rubbed away the drawing gum to reveal the nice clean whiteness of the guitar - that brought it to the very forefront of the design.

A few white dots on the stars (from VI Born to Perform set), mat and layered and I was done!

Lots of fun and not that complicated to produce - very happy with this, I hope Thomas was!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you've enjoyed your visit today,
Leanne xx
