Find Joy Every Day

Hello Everyone, This card is based on Shari Carrolls sketch #4. I distressed the music background with antique linen distress ink and stamped the music background with tea dye ink. The Garden Bouquet was stamped with more mustard ink by Stampin Up and I used the thumping technique with the Lady Bug Memento marker. You ink up the image with a light color ink and use a darker color marker to thumb the ink onto the stamp. Then you huff on the stamp to put moisture back to the ink and stamp your image on the paper. This was a fun technique to do and I like the results. Thanks for stopping buy and I appreciate the comments.
