This is the last one in the Purple Posy colour of the So Very Vellum specialty card stock sheet, and the last in the series of So Very Vellum cards.
Are you musical? Can you hold a tune? Do you play an instrument? If so, this stamp set is tailor made for you!
I was blessed with parents who provided me with a private education and all the little extras, piano lessons, ballet lessons, Alliance Française language school whilst living abroad and the one thing that's never left me is my love of music and I did it as a subject for "A" levels.
My main instrument was the piano - and it had always been a dream of mine to have a baby grand. However, the homes we've lived in or owned never had the space to house one, and I had to content myself with an upright. Sadly, I haven't tickled the ivories since our move to our present home for more than 20 years and it is very much out of tune and desperately needs a service.
Sighs, so I'll just have to make do with a pretty picture of one! This So Very Vellum layout used up the scraps in the corners to make a "V" shape, with enough space to do a bit of stamping. Have you noticed the mistake?
Well, if you can't see it, I 'm not gonna tell you!
I thought perhaps it would be good to show the other colours off too so this is the very last project to share using all the other colours in the pack - Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam.
For my card base, I used Soft Sea Foam and cut up strips of vellum in all three colours and adhered it directly to the card front to create a horizontal patchwork of the papers. I added a section of a silhouette in Soft Sea Foam die cut with the Friendly Silhouette dies, a teeny bit of stamping, added some sequins and voila, instant card!
Aren't those dragonflies just the sweetest? I stamped those in Soft Sea Foam and die cut them and added a greeting on the bottom right and that was all the stamping that was required! For a finishing touch plus added "bling" I used the Basic Adhesive Backed sequins.
Waste not, want not, I used the remaining strip of the silhouette die cut for the inside of the card!
Thanks for popping by - have a great weekend!
