DRD Listen for the Music

I have had a LONG break from Card Design Classes at my LSS and am loving the requests from the ladies to get started again

As much as I am itching to get creative with these ladies, I have enjoyed the break, but not from cardmaking though - NO WAY, it is the kit making that gets me - but I get there! LOL!  I have been inking up some sets that have not seen the 'light of day.'

One of them being the divine Harmony set from Darkroom Door - I am a fan of Rachel Greig's amazing images - and she is right here in Australia - you have to love that!! 

I have stamped the image with Walnut Stain Distressing Ink and stamped the image with Tsukinsko Onyx Black Versafine Ink. A little sponging and tearing along with corrugated card and Bakers Twine

anf the card is complete, very easy and lots of dimension - monochromatic works well with this set - in my opinion!!

This card is for the following challenges:
Let`s Ink It Up - Anything Goes
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes
PanPastel UK Challenge - Anything Goes
Stampalot Challenge - Monochromatic
Cupcake Inspirations - Photo Inspiration*
Crafty Emma - Vintage Dahling
Polkadoodle – Vintage / Retro
Simply Create Too - More than 2 Layers

This was one of elen cards I created in 24 hours - a record for me - all of them using what has been waiting on my desk for sometime, longer for some of them....shhhh!

I will be back with more posts over the next few days....

Thank you for stopping by, I always love to see you and appreciate the lovely comments you leave - it is like visits from friends and family.  I hope you are having a great day and finding some creative time! God bless you!
