Lyrically LIM

I've spent the afternoon with my heat gun on full blast - I've had 15 presents to make - but while it was out I thought it would be rude to not have a sneaky little play along in this week's LIM challenge which is "music".


First I stamped a musical background and embossed it with white tinsel EP.  Masked around it and sponged a couple of shades of blue DI and spritzed to mingle (it seems to be the only way I can blend my sponging successfully!)  I removed the masks and stamped the penny black skater silhouette on top and embossed with black tinsel EP - have just noticed that I'm missing a "la" off the end of the song....

Right, time to get back to wrapping - will it all be over soon????

  1. Haven't started wrapping yet Tara... I think that will be tomorrow's task!
    Great card.. I think how well inks blend is a lot to do with the cardstock you use! I have one very successful type and a lot of others that are useless for sponging techniques.
    Thanks so much

  3. Lovely card - super idea to spritz too.

    I rent myself out wrapping presents you know - shame you don't live closer to Bristol!

  4. Tara - this is lovely. I really like the sparkle in the music - looks like glittery snow!

    Aren't you good wrapping presents - I've not even started yet. I tend to sit down one evening (usually 20th/21st) in front of the TV and put on a slushy movie and wrap. It's great fun!

  5. Love the movement of the silhouette! It looks as though she is dancing moving to the music.

  14. Beautiful colours in your background. Jenny is right - I was singing to work out if you'd missed a 'la' - you shouldn't have told us as we'd have never noticed!! Happy Christmas!
