CFC166 - Music to my Ears!


Time for another fantastic challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog!

The challenge is all about Music to my Ears! For those of you familiar with the CAS-ual Fridays stamps and Fri-Dies collections, you will know that the music inspired product is simply wonderful!


I started with a Neena Solar White panel and used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple and Wilted Violet Distress Inks.  It takes patience on Neena Card stock but the results I find are worth it!  I then used a sentiment (You are the song in my Heart) from the Love Notes stamp set and used the same Distress Inks to get a tone on tone impression all over the background. I die cut my panel with a circle die and the Double Note Fri-Die from gold glitter paper with foam on the back for dimension.  I then die cut a circle frame and used gold embossing powder for the opening.  I turned the circle into a shaker, before putting the card together I felt it needed a little more so I added VersaMark Ink along the edges of the Distress panel and used the same gold embossing powder.  I put the card together and added my Vellum sentiment (also embossed in gold) from the same Love Notes stamp set and put the card together. I, of course, topped it off with a variety of sequins!
