Hi my friends. Here I am again with another card for the monthly challenge at Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art. Please see this post to see how I made the base for my cards.
I used my Inspiration Jar again and pulled out the words - music, torn paper, and button.
So I started by tearing some strips of patterned paper, which included one with music. I used gel medium to glue them to my card. I also put another coat of gel medium over the top.
I made some faux buttons from card stock. For each button, I punched five 7/8" circles, glued them together and used my crop-a-dile to punch the small holes. I sanded the edges a little bit to give them a smoother edge, but I think I could have done a little more sanding. Then I painted them with pearl white Lumiere paint. When that was dry, I stamped a music stamp on them with jet black stazon ink. The 'thread' in each button is a very narrow strip of black card stock.
I looked on line and found a quote about music that I liked and printed it. I did some faux stitching and doodling (to cover up a boo-boo I made with my marker) around the edge. And if I hadn't told you that, you would never know. Ha!
For the corners, I punched fancy photo corners.
Thank you so much for spending some time with me today.
