Musical Walk

Hi all! Here is a card that I made for the challenge over at the Hero Arts blog. The challenge this month is giving thanks, color challenge or adding shine. I chose to go with giving thanks and tried adding some subtle shine to my card.


I used the new and beautiful Musical Walk for my card. There are a few pretty and charming silhouette stamps in Hero Arts' new release and I want them all! =) You can see the new releases here.


I inked the stamp with frayed burlap and spritzed it with Perfect Pearl + water before I stamped it on the watercolor paper. The sentiment from this set is stamped the same way. The Music Background is inked with spun sugar then stamped with a spritz of water on watercolor paper. I then inked the piece with more spun sugar and with barn door on the edges. The paper doily is spritzed with tea dye reinker + water + Perfect Pearl.

That's it for now. Have a lovely day! =)



Thanks for stopping by!
