All That Jazz!

Hi everyone. It's a frosty morning here today and my bonkers Hubby left before 7am to spend the day diving in Lancashire. Just the thought of it makes me shiver! I'm being much more sensible and spending it in my craft room. I've done his Valentine's Day card so I have two more special projects to work on today - my Dad's birthday card and doing some more of my canvas for Jane's Inspiration Day. If you don't know about Jane you can read all about it here on Barbara Gray's blog. Her Inspiration Day is such a lovely idea.

Here's the card that I made with the new Remountable Music stamps. I think I'd better start off by saying that I know nothing about music so apologies if I've done anything dumb with them. They are fun to use though.

I used Jo's Bubbles stencil too. I love doing scenes and things in apertures so this is right up my street. It's such a lovely design and so versatile.

I started off with a piece of 7" x 7" card and taped it to the stencil. I stamped the saxophone in the large bubble and masked it off.

I then used a selection of inks (Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers and Weathered Wood Distress. Eggplant Adirondack) on an ink blending tool to colour it.

I stamped the notes in Weathered Wood through some of the apertures.

The rest of the stamping is done in Jet Black Archival. "All That Jazz" is stamped by masking off individual letters from the Word Chain sets. The final "Z" and the "!" are from the Letterbox set.

To finish it off I trimmed 1/2" from each side to take it down to 6" x 6" and gave it a thin black mat with a Perfect Layers ruler.

I hope you have a good day. I'm off to my craft room now.
