LIM:106 - one layer music

LIM one layer - Music, funnily enough my entry for a recent challenge fitted this brief.  Which left me thinking of new ideas.  I normally like one layer challenges, but today it took time to get there.


This seemed a little boring.  Coffee always aids the concentration/thinking.  So I did another attempt at the same sort of idea, but this time I also added more music and some linen thread and a chiffon bow.  I love the way the ribbon sparkles.  

Trying to give the effect of torn aged paper - by brayering in SU crumb cake, sahara sand and a touch of peach parfait, and then I sponged the edges to give more definition.   The stamps used are Penny Black - music background and the sentiment is from SU Inspired by Nature.  Passion can be a reference to a type of music used in Church during holy week, so the sentiment seemed apt.

Next weekend I'm off to Scotland for a few days to visit my parents - hopefully it won't snow.  Its a bit of a trek - takes around 8 hours to drive - I must be mad!


  1. I think you've got the background just right - great musical card!!

  2. Great card, the ribbon and thread really set the whole image off. Caggy x
