Music Christmas card

Here’s a quick card made for this week’s Card Patterns sketch. Here’s the sketch:

The card is also for Stamping A to Z on Two Peas.

I had this piece of watercoloured paper for a while. When I have used Distress Inks on my craft sheet, I often mist them and smear scraps of watercolour into the mix when I am finished. In that way, I don’t waste any ink and the pieces often look interesting. Not one looks like the other. I particularly liked this piece and decided to use it as the main element on this card. A few snowflakes were stamped on the piece and I used strips of Swedish Christmas songs left over from another project. I wanted to background to be subtle, so the music stamp was embossed on dark brown cardstock with glittery black embossing powder.

Thanks for visiting!!
