MAWTT June Challenge. . . . . . . Music

Good morning everyone. Hope that all is good with you and yours.

Today is time for another challenge at MAWTT and the theme for this one was chosen by Wendy and is. . . . . . . . . . . . Music!!!

It would be great if you can pop over and see what the other girlies have been up to and as always, would be fabulous to see some familiar names entering the challenge.

Now, I had been thinking it was time to start using my gorgeous First Edition papers again rather than them gather dust on the shelves and remembered these particular sheets from the Bird Song pad.

Cream card
Kiwi pearlised card (Lime Tree)
First Edition Bird Song 8x8 pad (the bottom/inside sheet is actually white so I inked over with Victorian Velvet DI)
SB Labels 20
SB Carnation Creations (thought you may fancy a change from Bitty Blossoms lol!!!)
Hobbycraft sentiment and flourish stamps
CE ribbon
Dovecraft teeny bling
Cream pearls
New Sprout Memento Dew Drop ink
Black Archival ink

It was an A4 sheet folded and cut into, as above.

The faux layers were created by inking around the die cuts using the die to provide an edge to ink up to, as above.

You can see the effect better, perhaps, on the above photo.

Sorry that this was a bit photo heavy but I thought I would explain how I did a couple of bits.
I think it was Jackie who asked if I used any equipment to stamp my last card. I think you were thinking of the Inkadinkadoo thingy they had on C & C sometime ago?
Nope, it was just me, the stamp, and a normal block. I did draw a circle to use as a guide to stamp around but that was it.

Thank you for your continued well wishes. I'm getting there and at least its taken my mind off my dodgy ankle lol!!! I am honestly being good and doing as I'm told. . . . . . . . .breaking the habit of a life time lol!!!
I will try and visit everyone's blogs to catch up today. Still nodding off at inopportune moments so its been frustrating.

See you all soon.

  1. Morning Ang,
    Pleased to hear you are feeling a tad better.
    Love your card.

  2. Love this one, Ang. Such pretty colours in the Bird Song pad and really nice bit of die cutting too. They are pretty little carnations too.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery.
    From the tub!

  3. Beautiful card Mrs D and you've been ever so neat with those layers, very pretty indeed, Jx

  4. Hello Ang,
    Lovely card today with great photos and instructions, thank you.
    Get your feet up and rest if you need to. You can't fight it, so don't try. I hope Mr D's mouth is all healed and fine now.

  5. Those papers are beautiful, no wonder you didn't want to cut into them! Fabulous card with those faux layers. I hope the recent hot weather hasn't encouraged your neighbour to go aux naturelle more often! Cara x

  6. Lovely card Ang. Like the subtle paper hinting at the music. Thanks for sharing how you cut the frames too. Zx

  7. At first I thought a shark took a bite out of your card - and then I realized that actually this is one gorgeous card - beautifully designed and made!! Bravo Ang!!!

  13. Hi Ang, thanks for all the comments on my blog, I'm catching up too as I've been enjoying the lovely weather and been sitting in the garden. Lovely card for the challenge. I have this paper pad, but apart from looking at the pages, I don't think I've used it more than a couple of times. Janice xx

  14. Great card Ang, love those papers, the brilliant flowers and design.
    Glad your feeling a bit more "chirpy"
    Patricia x

  15. A great card Ang. Thanks for the details
    I lime the faux nesting technique I will definitely be trying it once I'm back on my feet.
    Had my operation on my leg yesterday so bandaged like a mummy now. At least I'm back home xx
    Glad to hear your improving too xx

  16. Wow, what a very complicated card design, holy moly! I'm more of a chop chop glue kind of a crafter, but you have extreme patience for intricate designs! Beautiful Ang! hugs :)

  17. Hi Ang, I have missed your last couple of posts so did not realize that you had had such a scare. I do hope that you are now well on the way to recovery. Your cards are beautiful and it is a pleasure to see them, however you must take things easy and not tire yourself out.Your health is important.

  18. Hi Ang, beautiful card and great engineering. Lovely design and those papers are gorgeous, Kate x

  19. Hi Ang,

    Missed you gorgeous last post, sorry! Stunning creation again my friend, love the design, just gorgeous.

    Love & hUgs

  20. This is beautiful and thank you for the tutorial Good to hear you're doing as you're told

  21. Pleased to hear that you are behaving yourself, Ang.
    What a beautiful card. I have used dies to make a mat but never to ink round - a great idea.

    Anne (Northampton)

  22. A gorgeous card Ang love the way you used the dies to ink around a great idea.
    Glad your feeling a bit better and doing as your told.

  23. Hi Ang

    I've just popped in to say Thank You for those lovely words to Claire & Toby, and for the lovely poem. It brought tears to my eyes.

    I'm sorry you can't get to leave comments on my blog anymore. It's nothing I've done, honest guv! I had no idea you were having problems with Google+. I'll have to ask my son for some help. Hopefully in time I will back to blogging regularly. Thank you again Ang
