That's Music to my Ears

Happy Saturday Junkies! So excited to be sharing another fantastic July release from the baker's dozen with you today! My project features the new Treble Clef (large) stamp and one of my favorite sentiment stamps (Always Find a Song) from Technique Junkies.   
It's been a while since I've spent some quality time in the studio so when I started this project I was feeling "grungy" as you will see from the colors I used. It also started as a tag but through my creative process it ended up as a card. That's one of the things I love most about the process. Rarely does my final project end up anything like it started. 

The tag itself was created by applying Tim Holtz's tissue wrap (music) to a manila tag and covering with Distress Paints spritzed with water. After drying the Treble Clef was stamped in Archival black.

The sentiment was also stamped in Archival black and covered with Weathered Wood Distress Ink-to give the letters some color.
Tissue tape accents were added and a ribbon as well (also tinted with Weathered Wood Distress stain).
To make the tag really pop I matted it onto the music patterned paper which was also altered with Distress ink to match the letters in the sentiment.
I really love this Treble Clef stamp, being a music lover myself! And it comes in two different sizes. Be sure to check it out as well as all of the new July release from Technique Junkies!
Embrace Imperfection!
