Sunday Souvenir

SSS Monday Challenge is about powders, and I fancied using my Brushos... Brenda at Floral Fantasies did a wonderful CAS card last year and I took inspiration from it to come up with this card, for a special Birthday.

The stamps are all from Katzelkraft, except the letters  forming the "On!!!" of the sentiment.

I first stamped the saxophone image and masked it before stamping the music score. Then, I spritzed some water and shook some Brushos  powders over the wet areas, trying to give the impression of the musical notes floating with the colour, as if it was a vapour.

I turned my white base card into an easel and added an embossed Whitewash Core'dination piece of card (a Cuttlebug border), sanded back.

The special number has been stamped on top a triple embossed piece of MDF from Calico Craft.
Hope you will like it and of course the recipient!

Also entering the Allsorts and SSS Wednesday challenges.

  4. Looks amazing. I always love to see Brusho being used though I have never had any myself

  5. C'est superbement fait, je trouve que le mouvement des notes qui sortent du saxo va vraiment bien avec le mouvement donné par tes brushos!!!
    Bravo encore une fois pour exploiter aussi bien tout ton matériel... Y compris des tampons plus anciens comme ceux-ci. Je ferais bien de suivre ton exemple.. Bises

  6. Love you fabulous card, great use of stamps and watercolouring.
    Thank you for joining us at Simon says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

  7. Ooh, the colours seem just right for jazz somehow - those blue notes captured in inky swirls and blotches - fab!
