Clean And Simple Challenge #28

This is my card for yesterday's Clean And Simple MASCULINE Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.com:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=454179

I chose these sets SWEET SYMPHONY, SHEET MUSIC from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS:http://www.cleardollarstamps.com/

WHAT I DID: First my base is 4 1/2 square from white CS. I stamped the two lines from the Sheet Music set all over the white card base and clear embossed.

Next, I knew I wanted these sqares with the circle cut out, I'm sure there is an easier way, but what I did was cut out a 3 3/4" square from each color brown, green orange and blue. Then, I used my coluzzle to cut out the 4th circle from the outside from each square centering it. Then I cut each large square with the circle cut out from the center into fourths, using one from each color and centered on the paper and popped up with dimensionals. I sponged each square with that color and pierced the outside edges.

For the saxaphone, I stamped it in the center of the circle with chocolate chip, then two times on the patterned paper. I cut out the first saxaphone from the DP completely, the second I cut out the piece in the dip of the saxaphone. I then sponged the edges of both. With markers, I colored the top saxaphone in certain areas using three different browns. I then used dimensionals to adhere the first saxapone on top of the stamped image on the card, then used dimensionals again on top of that to adhere the second one. I finished by using dimensional glaze on it.

For the note, I punched out a 1" circle and stamped the note in the center in chocolate chip. I used two dimensionals on top of each other and adhered in the circle with part that did not have dimensionals on it overlapping the colored squares.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment on white, then used one of the cut out circles to trace with pencil under the sentiment. I cut along the lines and cut straight around the other parts. I adhered it leaving a little of the colored square showing. I paper pierced the bottom and hand stitched with brown thread and used a brass brad.
