Frosted Acrylic Card - Beautiful Music
I picked up this stamp at HL's this past week. I thought it was so pretty. I've used it to create this Valentine card on frosted acrylic that I purchased from Sheetload of Cards.
This was a tricky image to color. First I stamped with black Stazon ink onto Stampin' Up Whisper White cardstock. Next I used Prismacolor pencils and outlined the heart in red. I scribbled pink in the center of the heart then used the MCPT to blend the 2 colors into each other. I highlighted the music lines with a burnt yellow pencil. The stamp's picture shows all the splatters of color and to recreate it I put a couple of drops of ink from my Stampin' Up Reinkers into separate wells of a paint palete. Then using a tiny paint brush I dipped it into the ink and tapped the brush to create the splatters. I did this using red, yellow, pink, and green. I also managed to splatter my work surface, my tee shirt, my hands and my wall! But it was worth it! LOL Lastly I inked the edges of the cardstock with yellow and red Colorbox ink.
I stamped the dotted swirls on the acrylic using Stazon Red ink. After I was sure it was dry I added small drops of red stickles to the dots. The music notes and tiny hearts were stamped using Stazon Black ink.

The verse was printed onto the cardstock using my computer.
