Just a note!

I was inspired to make this card by the cue word MUSIC on CASology this week.  I tried to keep my card clean and simple with lots of white space.  I cut a mask using a Spellbinders die and then inked this with one of the new distress inks to create the look of old parchment paper.

I am also entering this card into Addicted to Stamps challenge #144 - CAS

Materials used:-
Violin stamp - Clarity stamps
Music stamp - crafty Individuals
Sentiment - Chocolate Baroque Mackintosh Sentiments
Distress ink - fossilised Amber
Archival ink - Wendy Vecchi potting soil
Inkylicious ink duster

Thanks for visiting my blog! Margaret


  1. I love the softness of the musical notes as a background to the guitar! Beautiful CAS card, Margaret! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at ATSM!

  2. I do love the elegance of this beautifully CAS card. I love the violin overlaid across the 'parchment' music score, and the masking makes it such a neatly contained image. Just lovely! Thanks so much for joining in the musical fun at CASology this week!

  3. This is so perfectly CAS and a brilliant idea for the CASology challenge too. I love lots of white space in a design, so this card is fantastic to me. So glad you joined us at ATSM this week!

  4. Gorgeous layered stamping and lovely inking! A CAS delight! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  5. Saw this in the CASology linky and had to stop by to say how much I love it!! Wonderful card, so simple and yet so striking. I love that cello stamp - (my daughter plays the cello)
