Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #32/ Featured Stamper Challenge #132





Alex hostessed this week and her colors were: Chocolate Chip, Teal, Vanilla and Optional Pink

Thanks Alex, great colors even though I finished my card late!!!

This is also my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=454004
My changes:
Mattes
Colors
Same theme different image
Ribbon on clip
Switched image and tearing to opposite sides
Added sewing

I used these new releases SWEET SYMPHONY, SHEET MUSIC from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS LLC:http://www.cleardollarstamps.com/

What I did: First I let my sewn ends of thread hang on the card like I saw Shawne do (I liked it-thanks for the inspiration Shawne) check out her gallery:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?si=shawn-eindiangirl

I stamped the sheet music to the back panel, then crinkled it and sponged with distress ink. Then I sewed it onto the mat without adhering first, it moved a bit as I sewed it, giving it a more whimsical look. I stamped the violin on a seperate piece of paper and adhered with removeable tape so I could stamp the sheet music behind the violin. While I had the mask on, I chalked the blue. I used dimensional glaze on the violin to make it shiny, like a violin.

Thanks for looking.
