Music On/World Off Card

Greetings! It's Tuesday so you have Kathi here to share a project with you. This week my teammates and I are showcasing wonderful products by Carabelle Studios. I decided to make a mixed media card starring the fabulously funky The 80s Lemur, which I had to have. After all, how could I resist a super-cool lemur tuning out the world whilst listening to music piped into his headphones courtesy of his cassette player?

Here's the card.

The 80s Lemur by Carabelle Studios was stamped onto white cardstock and repositionable label paper. The label paper was fussy-cut and placed over the lemur to mask him. 

A clear ruler was placed horizontally over the bottom half of the image. Jersey Cream Prism Ink was sponged over the ruler and the masked image to add color to the white background. The lightest color from the Yellow Ombre Ink Pad was brushed over the Time Tunnel Stencil by Visible Image onto the background to add a trippy element. 

The ruler was repositioned over the top part of the image panel and green ink was sponged over the ruler onto the base of the image to ground the Lemur.

The mask was lifted and retained for another use and the image was colored with Copic markers. 

Onyx Black VersaFine Ink was used to stamp the sentiment from the Music On/World Off Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Visible Image on the top of the image panel, which was then edged with Distress ink. Sadly, I got a fingerprint on the background, so I decided to use the grunge splash stamp from the same set to add a random grungy border. The image panel was set aside for a bit.

I had music printed patterned cardstock that I thought would work well with the image panel, but it didn't match the image panel, so I randomly brayered Vanilla, then Sage, and finally Autumn Fire Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paints by PaperArtsy onto the cardstock. Some of the lines were a bit harsh and the music notes were a bit obscured, so I misted the paper with water, used a paper towel to remove the excess paint, then heat set the panel. This background panel was then trimmed and edged with Distress ink. 

It was still missing something, so I used green ink to stamp Mystic Swirl Clear Polymer Stamp by Lavinia Stamps on the top left and bottom right corners.

The background panel was adhered to a 5x7 green card, then the image panel was adhered.
