Sound Of Music

Monday morning and time for a new challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges! This time the lovely Liza wants to hear the Sound Of Music! In other words we want to see something music related on your projects.

We're being sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Pink Gem Designs, please check our blog for all the details and to see the teams fantastic work.

I thought about the film Sound Of Music and vibrant coloured hill flowers; hence the colour scheme, maybe it's a bit over the hill top? My excuse is that I'm longing for colours after a long dull winter, hehe.

I coloured the Penny Black Hillflower stamp with Aqua Markers, blending and thumping the markers to get some dimension. Huffed on the stamp to moist it and stamped on watercolour paper.

I stamped the image a second time with embossing ink and embossed with fine clear powder.

The Penny Black music notes from the Clearly in Love set was inked with Broken China Distress ink and the edges  were distressed with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress inks.

The excess ink from the embossed image was wiped away with tissue paper.

I also used:
EK Success large corner rounder
Sizzix Wingo Zingo alphabet die

I'm entering:
