Inkspired by Sweet Sunday

Hi Hi!

Well I've got a ripper of a card to share tonight. I'm actually really happy with it. It evolved in my head during the week and then evovled more as I created it and I'm really happy with it. It's very different to my usual style, quiet vintage which I don't think I do very well so I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I used this weeks Inkspirations Colours... Aren't they lush? I love these colours together!



I also used this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I have never participated in there challenges before so I really hope I did it justice. Here's the layout...



I tweaked it alittle but here's the end result...



I must say it was really hard to photograph particularly the acetate I used along the middle with the musical notes on it. The photograph really doesn't do it justice also as there is so much texture and elements to it.

There are a few things I love about this card, Firstly the background. On the background there is musical notes wheel all over then the butterfly image from "bliss" SAB set. I then crumpled it into a ball a few times and then played with the edges, ripping, tearing, crumpling to get a really vintage feel. I also love the acetate through the middle. I stamped the wheel in stazon onto acetate. I love how the different colours all look coming through. It was a bit hard to adhere it to the card without to many glue marks. I used mini glue dots to assist with this.

Stamp Set: Bliss, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Musical Notes Wheel
Cardstock: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Standard Wheel, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Black Stain Ribbon, Acetate, Black Button Non SU, Labels Big Shot die, Big Shot


Thanks for looking,

Have a great day
Dani

Very nice Dani and I especially love the touch with the acetate. It's a great feeling when we create something we really like isn't it?! Thanks for playing this week at Inkspirations!
