Music soothes the soul

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I had a great day just playing with paints, inks and stamps and I made this card amongst other things:

I really like this stamp by Visible Image. I think it is one of my favourites. 
This postcard was made by cutting a piece of card stock first. I then smooshed some Distress ink onto my craft sheet en sprayed it with water. Next I took a piece of acetate and put it into the ink after which I smooshed the acetate onto my card. I repeated this with different colours until I was happy. 
This is called ink smooshing ! haha, no really. I saw Kristina Werner do this on her YouTube channel. 
Anyway I then took the 'sing' sentiment stamp and stamped it randomly with the same inks to get a tone on tone effect. Next I stamped the lady from the same set and the sentiment which came from a different set. Lastly I drew two lines around the card. 

I used the following stamps:

Soul Music

I hope I have inspired you to dust off those stamps and get to work ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by !
