Through the Porthole

It's Wednesday! So time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog. Penny's challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out! (pennyschallenges.blogspot.com) This week, our sponsor is "Fred She Said," and I used a few images from their digi set named "Emma the Mermaid." You can find it HEREThe sweet image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers plus a white gel pen. The sentiments are both computer generated. I had fun making a tri-fold card and creating a "porthole" on the front with a ring cut from cardboard, some aluminum foil and a handful of silver brads. So cute.

While I had this Hero Arts rubber mount stamp out this weekend to make the card that I posted yesterday, I decided to stamp it onto a background made from a section of music from a vintage choir book. I was thrilled when my SIL gave me a whole boxful of choirbook that she found when cleaning the basement of the family home. Some of the music is nearly 100 years old. My hubby's grandmother was a choir director and, thankfully, a packrat. I love using them on cards. I wanted a lighter touch on the coloring than I could get with my Spectrum Noir markers, so used Tombow Markers and watercolor pencils and a white colored pencil. So pretty.
