Less is More wk 46 Music

Hello All!
Phew, I`m a bit earlier this week with my entry for Less is More which is theme week.

My card is a bit of a long shot today. After searching through my stamps, the only other music related one I have is Rock Star which I used a few weeks ago. Then I found this one by Chocolate Baroque that I`ve had for ages and never inked up. Actually, looking at it, it would have been better for the Silhouette week which I used Rock Star on then I would have had a proper music stamp to use. Doh!
Anyway enough of my wittering, here is my card.
 It`s also a bit more than less.
I figured that there`s no nicer sound than birdsong first thing in a morning, especially blackbirds, and as it is music to my ears ( really pushing it now lol) I would use this stamp.
I had some music already printed off that I`d found somewhere on the net so I matted it onto some yellow card.
I chalked the background first with yellow and pink chalk then stamped over it using Versafine onyx black.
The image is raised using foam pads. I haven`t bothered with a sentiment on this one because I`m not sure who or what I`ll use it for yet....
Made a pleasant change from Christmas cards.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. It's a very pretty card - of course there's nothing to stop you entering again using your Rock Star set ........ I've used the same stamp more than once for LIM entries

    Seasons Greetings


  2. Amazing what we can find in our craft spaces eh Lynne!
    I love that silhouette image, it works perfectly with the music background
    Whilst we haven't loads of white space,it;s a stunning card

  18. I love how you've used the music background, and the silhouette image is perfect with it. I'm glad I'm finally finished with the Christmas cards too. Got them in the mail last Friday. Now I can start making the gazillion birthday cards I need all year! LOL!

  19. Hi Lynne, this is gorgeous and so is your snow card from last week. Both are so fresh and elegant. Love them!

  20. Great Dawn Chorus stamp and such nice colours. A fab "general" card, very versatile.

    The Dawn Chorus is the perfect link to music....roll on those mornings when you can hear the birds singing:)
    Have a great Christmas :)
