Simply Serenade

Hello Everyone,

For today I will be playing along with Time Out Challenges, Double D, and NBUS card challenges. I am using a stamp from one of my favorite stamp companies called Peddlers Stamp. I have wanted to use this stamp for a long time and now I have the opportunity! Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The violin, to me, is the essence of 'the arts'. It represents hundreds of years of history and culture. The instrument is both beautiful to hear and is visually stunning. I wanted to depict the music sheets as 'loved' and worn from practice and maybe a recital. This card can be for a myriad of occasions like graduations, congratulations, thank you, and the list goes on.
 
I started with the Peddlers Stamp and then colored it using a variety of alcohol markers. I then cropped and mounted the stamped image on brown cardstock. I cut around a piece of the violin and tucked the sentiment under the violin image for a nice touch.

I wanted to keep the sentiment simple, crisp, and not to compete with the amazing stippled background image.
Peddlers Stamps are so amazing and excellent quality. I just only hope my coloring is just as nice as the stamped image.

Challenges Entered:
My 'M' is music
NBUS- Challenge #14

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy. 

All the best,

Your coloring is spot on, Shawna! That image is magnificent and the way you have colored it and added the perfect sediment makes it really come alive! Take care and keep well and thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
