Sparkle and Sprinkle June Sketch Challenge

It is June 1st and today is my last day with the little one’s at school.  I will miss them but I am definitely ready for summer!!  Today is also the start of a new sketch challenge at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog.  Here is the June sketch.

This is your chance to win a stamp set of your choice.  Enter your creation, using this sketch and Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps, during the month of June at the SNS blog.  Here is my interpretation.

My oldest daughter is a viola performance major so I love anything musically themed.  SNS has some wonderful musical stamps.  I used Music Background and Solid Monarch images to create the background .  I created the gold strips with 1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Gold Detail Embossing Powder. 

The Treble Clef Symbol , Sixteenth Note, and Violin are stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with two layers of Super Thick Gold Embossing Powder.  While the EP was molten, I stamped them with Treble Swirl (see Stamping in Embossing Powder in the Tips and Techniques section).  When cooled, I rubbed them with dark brown ink.  This is a newer technique for me and I was unsure how it would work, but loved it.  The sentiment is Music Speaks, cut out with a tag dye and added with some sheer ribbon I have had in my stack for awhile.  Full details of this card can be found here. 

Head on over to the SNS blog to get all the challenge details and see more inspiration.  I am looking forward to see your projects!!
