This is my second post of today...please check previous (Forest) post here:http://www.paola-sama.blogspot.ca/2012/11/food-in-forest.html
My friend Jeanette (aka Forest Ranger) has recently posted her new Forest swap and it's all about 'Music in the Forest'....woww...I absolutly LOVEEE music, cannot even imagine NOT having music in my life....
For her swap I decided to take two spots, this is my first take. I recently puchased some new Memory Box dies and here's the result achieved using two of them ' Deer Trio' and 'Arboscello Tree' (it's all my WPS fault....ehehe txs Terry! ♥)
**LOVE these dies**
For these sets of cards I used Soft Sky SU card stock as well as plain ice white c/s.
Cant' remember the name of the paisley glittery d/p used for the trees but do like the effect with just a hint of colors...The background is made with using CB folder 'Allegro' .
I inked the folder with Soft Sky blue ink first, to obtain a soft splash of color. My first two cards were also 'dusted' with a hint of brown (see picture below) but decided to keep the rest of them monochromatic instead...
I also added cut out white felt and stickled it too, to get the soft glistening snow effect...
I stamped a lil birdie on top of the girls' violin, from another PI stamp set...
it makes it more 'foresty' don't you agree?...;o)
All card stock is from SU , the music paper is from copied music songs I had at school...and the d/p is from DCWV 'Pockets full of posies'.
I also added a sliver of Barely Banana grosgrain ribbon with a hand cut `musical` shabby-shick, stickled rosette on top. The added black notes come from Memory Box `Music`die...♥ Image is colored with Copics.
There you have it!!! I hope YOU like my interpretaion`s of `Music in the Forest`
These cards are already all packed up and ready to go postal as soon as I finish another swap for Jeanette....but that one is still very much a mistery...until revealing day in...December! ;o)*wink* ♥
HAVE A BLESSED DAY
and THANK YOU for stopping by! ♥
