Sing Sing a Song...

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week I stepped outside my box again (these new stamps from Em are making me try new things!) while playing along with sketch 13.

I took a piece of water colour paper and inked it with distress inks in antique linen and broken china.  I then stamped Grandma's Gramophone by Rhea with mementos tuxedo black ink onto the cardstock.  I masked out the dancing girl & dog.  The two layers under the image are embossed music notes from Darcie.  The bottom layer is Co'ordinations paper so I then sanded it.  I then added a black panel and ribbon and a button.

I decorated the inside because I wanted to show the sentiment.  Kate from my LSS suggested I buy a music sheet background stamp, I originally said no, but it was on sale so I bought it - well wasn't she smart!!  I stamped the music sheet onto bella's bestest cream paper with antique linen distress ink then stamped the sentiment with mementos tuxedo black ink.

Next weeks theme is Embossing -  folder, powder, however you want just add some sort of embossing to you card and email it to Em by Thursday to be included on Bloggabella

Please pop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes and sistah's creations with the sketch

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!!
