SSCB # 28 --- Color Blending/Music Print

It's time for the next DT inspiration for this month's challenge at Serendipity Stamps. This time the DT was challenged to use typeprint/sheet music and a color blending technique!!

So- I have been a little bit challenged on getting stamping time recently but, I did try a couple color blending techniques. The first is from a tutorial on SCS- crayon resist. Love the soft watercolor feel - thinking you could get a more pronounced image by pressing harder with the white crayon. The sentiment was embossed with gold. Added a "little note" and some sequins!

Here's the link to the crayon resist tutorial...

Love this sentiment... Serendipity has fabulous quotes in gorgeous fonts!!!

Another variation... this time I used the embossing folder- actually embossed and sponged ink from dark pink to blue to light pink.... added a doily and the same sentiment but, embossed in white on vellum. Added some pearls and twine.

Hope you find time to join us, and...

The rules are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and use typeprint or sheet music. You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery.

Great BG on the first one and Love the embossed musical score and soft doily and vellum sentiment on the second.

They are both beautiful Vickie, I do love the use of vellum and the embossing, something I don't do enough of! Gorgeous cards!

They are both beautiful Vickie! I love the one in white with the doily best.......just because I like pink and white. Great blending on both.
Been thinking about you.

Both of these are beautiful, Vickie! I love the shades of pink in both and I can't remember ever trying the crayon resist. It looks fabulous!
