Hit me baby....

Hello fellow Crafters,

This week's challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' blog is 'Music as inspiration'. It was set by the lovely Kathi and here's what she said :

'I love music and enjoy most genres ranging from liturgical music to rap, from classical to head-bangin' rock! Music fills my soul and moves me emotionally and physically.
Let's see how music inspires you! Use song lyrics, music notation, or words associated with music in your project and share it with us!
Have fun! I can't wait to see what you all create!"

Did you know there are two chances to win a $30,-- voucher at the end of the month. You can spend it in the Stampotique Webshop.  
All you have to do is take part in the challenge, but remember no digi's and only one entry per challenge.
I made this art journal page:

I started with some vintage music paper and coloured it with Dylusions, Fresh Lime. Calypso Teal and Dirty Martini. I then used a flower stencil and sprayed water through it. After a little while I mopped up the water which leaves this cool pattern. I dripped some white ink on the page. Next I stamped Fofe, coloured him with alcohol markers, clear embossed him and cut him out. I then drew a base ball bat for him to hold. It fits nicely in his hand. I stamped the Scalloped Lace Border and coloured it in similar colours, cut in in three bits and glued it on the page with some of the same but uncoloured music paper. I then glued Fofe on top. Lastly I used a label machine to make the sentiment which was sung by Britney Spears.....

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it.........
