Rhapsody in Blue.....and Brown.....

Hello everyone: I have a card I finished real quickly this morning, I had the little Viola already colored for another card but I thought I would use it on this card that I would like to enter to the "Less is More"  color challenge #288 BLUE and BROWN the Addicted to CAS challenge #94 with a CODE WORD "MUSIC", here is my card.


I sponged a bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink in the center and placed the music score die cut with blue foil paper with mini glue dots, I had the Viola already fussy cut so I just glued it to the panel, with the left over foil paper I die cut the word. I stamped some dots with one of the stamps in the Gorgeous Grunge set in Baked Brown Sugar after stamping once on scrap paper, I didn't want the dots to be to dark.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


I stamped the sentiment from a retired Flourishes set called Orchids, with Tumbled Glass twice to get a darker impression then I die cut it with the Spellbinders Fleur de Liz die set.
The little butterfly and flower are from the retired SU set called "Flowering Fields". I stamped the flower with Tumbled Glass and the stem with a SU marker, the butterfly was stamped with Stazon Dove Gray ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils.


Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

What a super card Maria! The way the musical notes swoosh upwards perfectly matches the 'dream' sentiment and gives so much visual interest. And to top it off, you've done a perfect inside too! Great job! x

Thank you Esther, I was really hesitant about submitting this card to both this CAS challenges, I always feel like I never leave enough "white space" on my cards.
I think the inside is a bit more CAS than the outside, LOL!!

Exactly I love the music heading up the paper as its music to our ears! Wish I could hear your talented grandchildren play!

Me too, my friend, I would've loved for you to attend this concerts, Vanessa's Senior concert was memorable. I have a video I taped of one of them but, when I tried to send it to you guys, there was a message that said the file was to big.
Thank you for stopping by.

Thank you Anita, I decided to do the sponging at the last minute, I felt it needed something to kind of ground that music score.

Sue VanDeVusse said...

Beautiful design! I love the softness of the sponged blue behind your elements and that foiled music staff is fabulous!
