The Stampman challenge ... music

This set of stamps was one of the first I got from the Stampman and I still love them. I've used lots of inky techniques to make this card for the latest challenge from The Stampman challenge which is 'Musical'

The base card is stamped with text using vinage photo DI. The next layer is some card which was 'sloshed' with loads of moonshadow inks in golden dubloon and ethereal emerald (the MOST gorgeous colour isn't it??). The next layer is vellum stamped randomly with the dragonfly text stamp. Then paperlace and ribbon were added (I coloured them with the leftover moonshadow inks on my craft mat). I stamped the focal image with vintage photo DI and stamped the dragonflies twice on some fantasy film. The sentiment is from Elusive images. Everything was torn and inked with lots more DI before being layered up to make the finished card.

I'm entering this in the following challenges too
Artful Inkables: Distressing

Thanks for looking,
Claire xx
