I got the music in me

And it's yet another A-Z journal page - that's 3 in 2 days!

And I am now officially 50% of the way through my book. Yay :)

This was a quick and easy one - all I can manage on a work night really.

I printed the band / crowd silhouette onto some textured card, sealed it with acrylic spray, and then went over it with a Versamarker pen and embossed with one layer of UTEE (because I like the bumpiness)

Then I sponged various colours of bright dye inks (Kaleidacolor, Adirondack and Stampin Up) into the "air" above the band, and using post it notes as a mask, I made spotlight beams with white pigment ink applied with cut and dry foam.

A bit of black pigment ink sponged around the outside as a vignette, and the stamped / handwritten title, finished it off.

I like how this has turned out - I can see me maybe using the same design one day for a quick teenagers' birthday card - my only regret is that the bottom Bind It All hole obliterated a cool rock hand :)

I am hoping I might even get another page done tomorrow night, fingers crossed.

I love this, it's a very evocative image. The textured cardstock is great- is it just Bazzil or something more interesting?

Wow this is a superb design. Bright and colourful with its rainbow of inks and love the way you've used white ink to create spotlight beams. Very dramatic effect with the solid black over the colour - really punchy
