My youngest brother has taken up the clarinet and for being mostly self taught he is really good. I never know what to put on his birthday cards because until now his only interest has been computers and there are only so many computer themed images and stamps around! So this time I willingly went with a musical theme.
I apologise for the shadows in the photo it was tricky trying to avoid them!
clarinet clip art from internet
brown card and paper in various shades
gold mirri card
X-Press It card
musical swirl clear stamp from stash
detail gold embossing powder
music embossing folder
embossing ink pad
happy birthday die
Vintage Photo Distress Ink pad
The card base is made from an A4 piece of mid brown card. The dark brown layer is made from a textured dark brown card. The embossed layer is coloured with Vintage Photo distress ink. The top layer is stamped and heat embossed with detail gold embossing powder then the edges are also embossed with the same powder. The greeting is die cut from gold mirri card.
The clarinet image is printed on X-Press It card and coloured with Copic pens.
I had a bit of fun ‘playing’ while making this card. It’s been a while since I used a ‘real’ stamp and got the heat gun out. I think I need to do some more soon!
Thanks for popping in. Take care.
