Musical Inspiration


At the beginning of the month, I shared a musically themed card for Sparkle N Sprinkle's June Sketch Challenge. Today I want to share the scrapbook page that it was designed to coordinate with. This is inspired by my daughter, Trisha, who I have been visiting.

I started with some decorative music themed cardstock, then added some sparkle by adding a swirled die cut to the left side and a musical score across the top, created with 1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape, covered with Black Ice Glitter.  The musical themed embellishments are made using Super Thick Gold Embossing Powder and Sixteenth Note, Music Treble Clef, Treble Clef Symbol, Violin, and Treble Swirl. 


The sentiment is Music Expresses embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder in the middle of the Music Label, embossed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder and cut out with the coordinating Spellbinders’ Labels Thirteen die. 

For the flowers, some were silk and the others were handmade using cardstock and tissue paper.  For final touches I add pearl swirls and stamped Solid Monarch in the background.  You can find a more detailed post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog or go here for complete instructions. 

We have a lot of exciting things happening here at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  We currently have a Design Team Call going on through July 27th.  Tuesday April will be back with a new Technique Tuesday that you won’t want to miss.  Don’t forget about the June Sketch Challenge, plus watch for an awesome new set being released soon.
