Add a Little Music

Did y'all participate last month in the Tuesday Morning Sketches anniversary challenges? We had some wonderful prizes leading up to the grand prize of a Misti stamp system. Now it is time to get back to our regular weekly challenges, and we hope you will continue to follow and play along with us. Here is this week's sketch:

This sketch holds all kinds of possibilities, and our DT team has created some fantastic samples for you. 

I started with a black base card which I layered with a piece of red patterned paper. You cannot tell from the photo above, but there is black in the background paper (looks like the streaks in a slab of marble). My stamp set is by Close to my Heart. I used the piano keys for the main image. I stamped it on white using black Memento ink. I then matted it with black. The individual notes (also from the same set) were stamped with the Memento ink and matted with black. If you look closely, you will see the individual notes have a bit of glitz to them. I lightly colored over them with Stickles. Lastly, I added three black pearls to the top right hand corner.

Hope you will join us this week at the Tuesday Morning blog with your creation. Have a great week!
