I promise, though, that this card will be worth the wait!
My design is inspired by the STUNNING inspiration image over at Fusion Card Challenge this week.
Just look at that beauty! For those of you who haven't played along at Fusion, here's how it works: You can choose to play with either the sketch OR the inspiration image OR mash 'em together and use both.
I got out some old sheet music I keep stashed in my craft hoard erm... I mean stash and used the masks from the STAMPlorations Feathers and Arrows LARGE stencil and mask set. (Which you can score for 20% off using my discount code STAMPGIRLBECCA).
I laid the mask securely on the sheet music and added some watercolors around the edge, to mimic the inspiration image.
I tore the sheet music out and glued it on a piece of black cardstock, adding some washi tape to the background. Then I used the Dots All Over stencil and applied some metallic black texture paste.
Taaadaaaaa! Artsy textural goodness! I rounded out my design with some words from Tim Holtz sticker set and added a handwritten sentiment using a white gel pen.
I used watercolors because I wanted to link up to the Mixed Media World - Watercolors and Mixed Media challenge.
Thank you for popping by! I hope you'll go check out the rest of the lovely designs at the Fusion Card Challenge.
