... it's Jennifer's turn to host the One Layer Wednesday challenge this week - and I'm running late with my cards, as the deadline for entry is tomorrow!! What Jennifer would like us to make is a one layer card with a musical theme - now she's not being strict - it can be musical notes, birds, anything so long as it relates to music! There are some fabulous cards already entered - do have a look.
Anyhow, I wanted to make a sort of grungy, teen type card - I love the Stampin' Up! guitar player (but can't get it in the UK - yet!) - so I decided to see what I could come up with. And I'm quite pleased - I've done two versions of "You Rock!" and a small "note" card!!
Both started off as white A6 card blanks. On the blue version above, I stamped the guitar and sentiment with versamark and then heat embossed with black gloss powder. I over stamped these images with some musical staves from Waltzingmouse. I coloured the body of the guitar and the stars on the sentiment with a blue Sakura stardust pen. Finally, I sprayed Cosmic Shimmer Mist over the whole card. The result is a very grungy, but sparkly card!
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo - Rockstar; Waltzingmouse - Muscial Backgrounds
Inks: Versamark; Memento - London Fog
Accessories: Embossing powder - black gloss; Cosmic Shimmer Mist - Silver
In the card above, I stamped the guitar and sentiment in Brilliance Graphite Black and then heat embossed with clear gloss. This time I added colour with twinkling H2Os - selecting a bright red. Finally, I sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist - but a much lighter application. Resulting in a cleaner, less grungy card.
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo - Rockstar;
Inks: Brilliance - Graphite Black
Accessories: Embossing powder - Detail Clear; Cosmic Shimmer Mist - Ancient Copper; Twinkling H2Os
The next card is just a small one - a little 3" × 3" card from Papermania. I made a square mask from a post-it note. I stamped the WM musical background into the square, but did it at any angle. I added a single musical note in the centre of the stamped music and a simple sentiment. Really like this one! Please note, this is a white card - on a blue backing sheet so that you can see the scalloped border on the car.

Accessories: Card from stash
I didn't get into my craft room yesterday, and I didn't get to craft class this morning. I found out late yesterday that Kathryn wasn't back to school this morning. She's back tomorrow!!! The teachers are having a training day today. So my plans for a crafty day today have been a bit curtailed!! Instead, Kathryn and I went to have our Visa photos taken (they're awful), we bought some new school shoes and had a nice lunch out! Actually, it's been fun! Kathryn's been having a music session on the Wii and I managed to get the cards above made.
Before I go, I must say Hello and welcome to two new followers - Deb and Carol - so nice of you to join me!
Hopefully, I'll get back on track with challenges from tomorrow!! See you then.
