I Love Music

Hello everyone!

It's Debbie today, and I thought I would surprise Beverly and the design team, with my take on the Musical Motif challenge this week. I love music, so this was an extra fun challenge for me.

I started out with a heavy cardstock for the base. I cut the sheet music to fit the card and gave it a light swipe of Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads of Pumice Stone and Tea Dye. Using both colors, gives me the look of old piano keys that have been yellowed over time.

Using black cardstock, I die cut the Piano Border by Memory Box. What a great way to remember my great uncle giving me piano lessons.

The red and white background labels above the keyboard, were cut out using the Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight dies. I used the smallest die in the set.

I wanted to also feature musical notes from the sheet music. I grabbed some white chipboard and die cut the Musical Motif set, also by Memory Box. I colored the cuts with a black marker.

For the heart, I used the Heart Flourish by Impression Obsession. I cut all the extending parts off, to just use the heart outline. 

To make my notes and heart stand out, I covered each one with a Versamark pad. For the Musical Motif set, I mixed Black Detail embossing powder and Crystal Ice Ultra fine glitter in a small bowl. I used my small heat gun to heat set the glitter. I covered the notes with my Versamark pad again, then I dipped the notes in a thick clear embossing enamel, and heat set. For the heart, I just used the Versamark pad and the embossing enamel. Now they look like glass with glitter! I added small Joy! Foam Pads under all the notes and heart for dimension.

I hope you enjoy our challenge this week. It would be fun to have you enter and win the prize for the week!
