Music


Created for the Sunday Postcard Challenge. The background was created by first sponging white card with Chalk Inks in Pretty Petunia & Thatched Straw. This was then sprayed with Lustre inks in Pink, Lilac and Lemon. Next the card was sttamped with a text background in StazOn Stone Grey. Torn Music paper was attached and the whole background then coated with dilute gesso. More sprays to finish, and a little lilac chalk ink also. The collage image was then applied, computer generated text and a small musical charm.
