More Jazz Please!

My jazz player (Technique Junkie Stamps The Saxophonist - is in the orchestra -- and he is being featured so he has stepped out to the front.  Can't you see all the folks in audience clapping along to the beat?   I stamped the Technique Junkie Treble Clef Small - in the background first.  Then I added the Saxophonist in front   with black Memento ink.  I colored the saxophone player with Copic markers.  I then colored in the saxophone with a silver marker.  

Because silver ink is opaque, the lines showing the detail pf the saxophone were now gone.  But MISTI  - -  to the rescue! And Technique Junkie Stamps sells  them!  Next I only reinked the saxophone with Black Versafine ink.  I covered only the saxophone with detail black embossing powder, dumped off the excess, and heat set it. Now the details on the saxophone show up perfectly!

I stamped Technique Junkie Stamps Life is a Song - - to the side.  The verse is stamped with Versafine Black ink, covered with detail black embossing powder and heat embossed.

Music background paper is placed on white card stock for the base card.  I wish this showed up better.   It is sucha lovely card -- it needed no other embellishments -- at least in my mind!

Have a great and inky day. It is cold here today -- so it is a good day to stamp! Don't forget -- all April Release Technique stamps are 15% off through April 8.  Be sure and check them out!
