You're the Song in My Heart

>> Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Hi Everyone,
It's Karin posting today, and I say that mainly because I thought you might not know it's me from the card style today.  I tried to step outside of my comfort zone and make a card that had a vintage flair to it.

I distressed the edges of my papers and used some distress ink to give it an aged quality.  I stamped the one side of the background with the new Girl Swirl stamp; I love that it matches the new Filigree Heart exactly.  I stamped the heart, cut it out and covered it in crackle glaze. Once it was dry, I bent it until it cracked and then rubbed distress ink all over it.  I also added a lace heart, and the music notes are pieces of Tim Holtz paper tape.  So easy to use.  All these elements tied into the sentiment Song in my Heart.

Here is a closer shot of the crackle heart...

Thanks for visiting with me at the blog today, and you can check out all of the stamps from DRS Designs here.
Have a good one!

Wonderful Card!! You do as well outside of your zone and you do inside :) I love the black/ivory combination.

So glad you stepped out Karin! I love this card and vintage isn't 'my thing'. Great job!

Karin, this is spectacular. I love the vintage look and I especially like a musical scored used for the vintage look. I'm a big fan, too of using crackle glaze/ crystal effects for a cracked glass look. Nicely done.

Great job decorating this card to match the sentiment and creating out of your comfort zone!
