Sweet Music CD Case

The latest Fashionable Stamping Challenge theme is ‘ice cream colours’  and I’ve been thinking and experimenting for a few days, trying to come up with a Neopolitan ice cream background. Eventually I remembered an old watercolur palette of US Art-Quest pearlescent pastels that had just the right shades for chocolate and strawberry.

Simultaneously, I’ve also been thinking of an idea for ‘Out of a Hat Creations’ challenge – ‘All Parceled Up’.  I have some blank CD cases and they are just right for a rich creamy vanilla.

I randomly stamped the music stamp (Toybox) in Versmark and clear embossed. Then I wet the watercolour pastels and sponged them on thick with a kitchen sponge. I sprayed just a little water where the strawberry and chocolate met, to blend.  Other stamps I used were Hero Arts watercolour flowers and the tree swing and label from Stampin Up.

As well as FSC and Out of a Hat, I’d also like to enter this for Creative Card Crew – Maps, Newsprint,sheet music, script.
