Passion for ProMarkers Challenge

It's time for another challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers and this week we want to see creations with the theme of music. The sponsor for this week is Whiff of Joy and the winner will have the choice of 1 stamp.

For my card I used a fab image from Mo Manning, I just love the way the dog has his head back howling ! I've actually used Aqua Markers this time and have painted the image. As I've used a digi image I heat set the ink before I started so that the outline wouldn't run.

I've distressed the edges of the image and used some DI too and added some faux stitching. The music is an old stamp that I picked up in a sale years ago and I've stamped it with Vintage Photo DI and also blended it over the card and distressed the edges.

The flower is made using the Paper Artsty Grunge Flower die which I've used to cut out two flowers from some card that I've stamped with the music stamp and then rubbed Vintage Photo and Victorian Velvet DI over it. The centre of the flower is a rolled flower and I've rubbed Vintage Photo and Victorian Velvet DI over the top. I've cut some pieces of organza ribbon to sit the flower onto. The swirl is cut using a Tim Holtz die and the paper is Basic Grey which I've stitched around the edge.

I had lots of fun with this card as there was plenty of ink and distressing !

Hope you get chance to join us this week and look forward to seeing your musical creations !

Thanks for looking.
