Etsy Inspired... Amour

This card is for the current Etsy Inspired challenge.  The Etsy store we are to take our inspiration from is La Pomme.  When I clicked on the link my eyes were immediately drawn to the packets of old french music sheets.  The perfect inspiration for me to use my new Hero Arts cling set Musical Clef.   I stamped the card base (PTI's Soft Stone) with Ranger's Weather Wood distress ink after first stamping it off on some scrap paper.  I inked the edges with Old Page distress ink to give it that aged look.  I used my ODBD tag die to make the tag and stamped it with Weather Wood using the same technique that I used on the card base.  The tag was aged with Old Page ink, as well.  The clef was stamped on Soft Stone with True Black ink, trimmed out and the edges inked with Old Page, as well.  The word "Amour" was stamped on the bottom of the tag with True Black ink.  A bit of PTI's True Black satin ribbon was looped through the top of the tag to finish things off.



Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Soft Stone; Stamps:  Hero Arts Musical Background, Musical Clef & Paris; Inks:  PTI True Black, Ranger Weather Wood & Old Page; PTI True Black Satin ribbon
