Colorful music

Finally, I can use this stamp set with colors more than just black and white and I'm so excited about it!

I have had this set A Melody for quite a while but every time I used it the card ended up a rather boring combination of black and white.  I wanted to use this to make a card for my piano teacher friend but the card almost always went to my trash bin.

I've learned to use baby wipes as the platform to absorb reinkers to become a DIY inkpad so I was just going to give it a try.  It looks really nice!  I wish I had more reinkers so the effect could be even more dramatic:

But now I am happy with this card for my piano teacher friend.

It is  entering the challenge at Less is More, asking us to make a one layer card with some music on it.  It is also entering the challenge at OLW - asking us to use a color that has been neglected.  For me, this rainbow color combo rarely shows up on my cards!

The colors I've used are Cranberry, Creme Brulee, Sorbet, Juniper, Twilight and Pacifica, all from Close to My Heart.  Even though it is not exactly a rainbow color combo, it gives me a good opportunity to try it out so when I have collected all the rainbow colors I know exactly what to do!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Wow, making your own 'baby wipe' ink pads has worked a treat here ... such a fun, happy card! Anita in France :)
