Music of Life

The City Crafter Challenge this week is Winter White and I paired that up with the Mojo Monday #220 Sketch.

I love all white cards... They are always beautiful.  Of course I started with an all white card which ended up with a little shading of gray.

1. Stamp background using Memento London fog and one of my favorite Verses Rubber stamps which is the poem by Elizabeth Barret Browning - How do I love thee - QQ0809-G.  The stamp actually is the full poem in a little script and makes the perfect background.
2. Stamp Verses Rubber Stamps Life is the Music on white cardstock using Versafine Smokey Gray.
3. Stamp over sentiment using Cornish Heritage Farms Music background with Memento London Fog.
4. Stamp Music over tissue paper using Versafine Smokey Gray. Die Cut flowers and assemble. Dab glue over flowers and sprinkle with Stampendous Ultra-Fine glitter.
5. Punch Butterflies from leftover music background. Add glitter and gems.
6. Emboss white cardstock with embossing folder. Sponge with gray dye ink.
7. Distress all edges with distressing tool and sponge on gray dye ink.

The sketch:

Have a wonderful day!
