Creative Nugget: Twisted Citron, Fossilized Amber, and Broken China distress inks were applied to a piece of mixed media paper using the wrinkle-free technique. Watering Can Archival ink was lightly stamped off once and stamped over these colors. A strip of texture paste was applied through a Tim Holtz stripes stencil for a little more texture. The letters in one of the sentiments were masked and stamped one at a time to create the letter tiles while the rest of the sentiment was white embossed on a hand cut banner. Scribble Flowers were stamped on scraps of wrinkle-free paper and cut with the new Scribble Flower Dies. Gold micro beads were added to the centers of the flowers to finish this card. Several challenges were the inspiration for this card including the Splitcoaststampers WTUI Challenge today, the Color Throwdown Challenge, and the Pile It On make your own background challenge.
Creative Nugget: The design for this card was inspired by the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge and the Morgan's World Challenge to add three of something. Watering Can ink was used to stamp the music background on the first layer. Distress inks were used to age the panel. The background was white embossed, sponged with Tumbled Glass, Victorian Velvet, and Frayed Burlap, and cut with a pierced rectangle die for the second layer. One of the sentiments from the Music to My Ears set was embossed and matted to a square panel. A few music notes were lightly stamped around the border. The hearts from the Grunge Elements 2 set were stamped over the embossing and a square frame was mounted around them. A circular frame was mounted to vellum, and white embossed hearts also cut from vellum and colored on the back with Copic Markers were added. Some glittered enamel dots and metallic thread finish the card.
