We're making music at Passion for Promarkers!

The week has rushed round again to Tuesday which means it's time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  We had some awesome entries for Tracy's sketch last week - I wonder who she's going to pick for her top three! 

This week's challenge has been set by the fabbie Andie and she's chosen  music as our theme.  And we're being sponsored by Whiff of Joy with a stamp of your choice up for grabs- luvverly!!

For my card, I used Genevieve from Krafting Kimmie stamps, which, I think looks likes she's listening away to something funky on her headphones!
I used my Promarkers (as opposed to the Aquas) this week and papers from the TH Lost and Found pad!! I also paper - pieced the paper in her hand - I used a piece with music on it from the pad, but you can barely see it!!  I love the soft, distressed colours of this pad, so went further with the distressing theme and distressed the edges and added Picket Fence crackle paint to the edges. I followed the Sketch over on Truly Scrumptious which was super to use.  I embossed the grey oval with the CB music folder, sanded it down and added Rock Candy clear crackle paint over it.

The flouirsh adds to the musical theme, I think - looks like a Bass Clef, so I stamped one in the corner too!  The sentiment is from a great little set by Inkadinkoo which I've edged with another note stamp, and all the rest - flowers, brads, ribbon, etc - are from stash.  Think I went a bit overboard with the Viva Decor pearls  though!!
