Music in the Forest


Hello friends!
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...

...and now onto the second set of  my 'music' themed cards...

 
 
These cards, coincidentally, corrispond with the same theme and image I used  recently for another swap...here's the link :

  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! ♥

Both of your cards are perfect! I especially love the trees on the first card. The subtle colors on them look great.

Omgoodness! How did you come up with the idea for the first card? It's STUNNING!! Every little detail. They are both just gorgeous! Love seeing that cutie pie Pure Innocence stamp again. That sparkly winter scene makes me wish extra that I had been in the forest this round. GORGEOUS!!

Paola--I think both of these cards are stunning.

The first one is such a great "forest" card--love all of the sparkle! And the second one--what a cute image and great colors!
