He's Just Grand!
Today I'd like to share a card with you I made for a past Outlawz Challenge. The challenge was to use "music" in some way on your card. This was especially fun for me because my children and I all play piano and Tami Mayberry's set, "Grand Tags" will forever be one of my favorites because we also have a baby grand piano and I'd been hoping and and wishing for a set like this!! ;-)
My card also uses one of Gina K's fabulous technique video's the "Pillow Top Background". I used a "softer" touch than Gina did because I really didn't want it to look totally like a pillow but just a slight tracing of it. I also used a lighter ink so as to keep it a little less noticeable.. but still add some texture.
My card base is Pure Luxury Pumpkin Spice. I added a layer of Sweet Mango and some Memento Desert Sand ink which was sponged on according to the technique above. I stamped my image on a piece of card stock from my stash and added some copper threading and a few Copper Nail Heads for accent. My image was raised using Pop Dots.
Thanks for stopping by two and I hope you enjoy youro Friday! The weekend is upon us!!! Woot!!! *HUGS*
