Crafty Boots Challenge - Music

Welcome back to a new challenge for Crafty Boots - the theme of Music is chosen by my teamie Sara.

However, I have failed somewhat because when I went to upload my entry on the DT site, I re-read Sara's original instructions.. which read "include your favourite song, group, musical event or musical instrument on a tag or scrap book page" Oh dear....because I made a card... Hope I'm forgiven and you do better at reading than me!!   Perhaps I should have just pretended this was a scrapbook page!  (I have checked with Sara and she's fine with this - so now you have another option to go for along the music theme!)


I stuck Tim Holtz tissue tape to a piece of white card, using Matte Accents glue, and tore the edges, then added Mowed Lawn and Vintage Photo distress ink to colour it.  The composers stamp is an old old stam I've had for years, stamped on white card and lightly inked with Vintage Photo. I mounted this with 3d foam pads.   The piano keyboard is a piece of ribbon I bought specially at the Newbury artstamps show on Saturday (nothing like last minute crafting is there!) and is fixed with double sided tape.  The violin is another stamp I've had ages.

You have two weeks to enter this challenge, as usual.

A really effective card. The tissue tape works well and that ribbon ties everything together perfectly. Julie Ann xx

Opps, I think it was very honest of you to confess that you made a card, because we would have never known that it is not a scrapbook page. Your design is fab, I especially like the keyboard along the lower edge of your layout.

You're not the only one to get the brief wrong Helen, I'm doing it all the time for example I paper pieced when I should of paper pierced ! My fellow DT's were gentle with me.

I've got a bit of a thing for music scores on background pieces so along with hues of green and browns this totally appeals to me.
