Hello Honey Bee friends! Leanne here and I have a couple of cards to share that were inspired from a music recital invitation I had seen on Pinterest. I used some of the images from the new Music Speaks stamp set and came up with an elegant design that is sure to be a hit with any music lover.
The music recital invitation I had seen had a partial image of a grand piano and text overtop. I thought I could easily replicate the look on a card. I started with A2 sized panels of white and black card stock and then hand cut the curve on the right side to resemble that of grand piano.
I stamped the piano keys image from Music Speaks in black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a nice glossy finish. I fussy cut the image, adhered to the bottom of the piano panel, and trimmed off the excess. I added the piano panel to an A2 card base. For the black piano card, I wanted a clean and elegant look. I kept it simple with a gold embossed sentiment and music notes from the Music Speaks set. I also added just a few Crystal Prism Gems for embellishment.
I decided to kick it up a notch with the white piano card. I layered the piano panel over a stenciled background. I created the black and white music note pattern with one the new stencils from the Sheet Music stencil set and some Moonstone Glimmer Paste. **One tip for getting an opaque stenciled look is to stencil with white pigment ink first before applying the Moonstone Glimmer Paste** Next, I white heat embossed the trumpet, violin, and a few music notes onto black card stock. I colored the trumpet and violin with some metallic watercolors –KURETAKE – Gansai Tambi Water – 6 Color Set – Starry Colors. I stamped a greeting from Rockstar Sentiments directly onto the piano and then adhered the music instruments and notes around it along with a few Crystal Prism Gems.
