A Friend Knows The Song In Your Heart

Lisa here and today I'm sharing with you a card I made using the Big Treble and Treble Clef Fri-Die along with a couple additional sets. 

I started by creating a background using the Emboss/Resist method that Nora showed you in this post here.  I stamped some of the Treble Clef images from the Big Treble set along with some hearts from the Peace, Love and Coffee stamp set in a sort of random pattern in Versamark and heat embossed them using white embossing powder.  Then I ink blended my background with Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides and lightly swiped over the top to wipe the ink off of the images.  I decided I wanted the Treble Clef images to stand out more so I added some additional color back to just those using my Zig Clean Color Real Watercolor Brush Pens-alternating in similar colors to what I used for the background.  Then I splattered some metallic watercolors over the top in pink and gold.

I fell in love with the background so I decided my sentiment should be on vellum to let as much of it show as possible.  I cut my frame from vellum using the Bubble Box Fri-Dies and heat embossed in black.  I have always loved this sentiment!!  CAS-ual Fridays has some of the best sentiments I've found anywhere!

I cut a Treble Clef die cut out of some foiled cardstock that was just the right color.  Along with some hearts from the Heartboard Fri-Die... I just used the one for the bottom left corner and saved the rest for a future card.   Finally I scattered some clear and pink sequins around.

I hope you enjoyed your visit here today!  Be sure to come back often for more inspiration!
