Less is More Challenge #8 A sketch.

Good afternoon all!

It`s saturday again which means a new challenge over at Less is More. which is a sketch this time.

I logged onto the challenge at 08;01 this morning and there were 11 people on line already which just goes to show, not only how popular it is, but also how much we look forward to a new challenge from Mandi and Chrissie. This challenge is going from strength to strength. Even though we all moaned last week about masculine cards, there were well over 200 entries. Keep up the good work girls.
I looked at the sketch, then went off to do my ironing. Now I hate ironing with a vengeance. I would sooner clean the loo than iron, but... it`s so mind numbingly boring that it gives me chance to think about what I`m going to produce that day. By the time it was finished I had idea`s for at least 3 cards so it can`t be all bad eh?
And also don`t forget there`s only 1 week til our new challenge blog opens it`s doors. I`m counting down the days and can hardly contain myself with excitement.

On to todays challenge then. A super dooper, easy peasy sketch I`m sure you`ll agree and it`s open to allsorts of interpretations. Here is my take on it.
This is my first card and I know it wont be my last this week.
I made a DL card in white card stock.
I printed off some music paper that I`d downloaded ages ago and can`t remember where from (sorry).
The image and the sentiment are both from Inkadinkado Rock Star set. Stamped in Versafine.
I stuck some of the sheet music onto some black paper after punching a strip with a fiskars punch.
The image is cut out with a nestie circle and raised using foam pads.
It wasn`t until I was photographing it that I realised I had the music paper upside down. If there are any serious music readers out there I apologise.

Thanks to all of you who helped with my smudgy ink problem the other day. I think I must have had a senior moment because I knew about Memento ink and have some in black. Just didn`t think to use it. Sorry I think it`s my age lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  2. By the look of the rests, it seems that the music is the right way up Lynne, so I don't think you have a problem there!
    It's a great idea, I love cards with musical connotations.
    Maybe I should go and do some ironing!

  25. Fabulous card Lynne and I love the music theme - absolutely brilliant!
    Re. the missing Teddies - after a very frustrating couple of hours they have returned! I'm sure you were right when you said it had something to do with scheduled posts - it was set to appear at 6am, but it didn't, so when I posted it automatically at 8.30am everything went pear-shaped!! Ah the pleasures of Blogging!! Have a wonderful week - hugs, Sylvia xxxx

  27. This card certainly rocks Lynne, love that little drumkit, so perfect for the card. I have a PB stamp and apparently the music is upside down on that so even the professionals make mistakes!
