The Scrapbook Garden - Music Icon Card

This is my 7th project for this months
design kit for the Scrapbook Garden
Here Ive been working with one of the fab Tando Creative Masks
I used the Musical Mask  which was just perfect
for a special someones birthday.
I started with some Dovecraft cardstock in Whipped Cream
and placed my mask over the card.
My initial idea was to use one colour of Distress Ink
to colour over the mask, but then i added a 2nd , and a 3rd
and 4th .......until I go totally carried away and lost count with
how many colours Id used as the colours just all blended together
creating a very rich colour in itself.
I was very pleased when i lifted the mask from the card.
The deep tones were perfect for what i needed.
I used some Blue Dotted Swiss 12 x 12 and some Gold card
from my stash and matted the Music Panel.
I added one of the dominoes I altered earlier using the
Mountain Rose Alcohol Ink you can find a range
of inks here , added the name David and that was
it all done.
The card has been sent to the David Eseex Fan Club
and along with others and will be put into a leather wallet and
sent off to him from his fans for his birthday.
Im sure you have all seen him lately in Eastenders
and anyone who knows me well will know
ive been a fan since I was 14 years old.

I hope he likes his card, and if he messages me and asks
about it I will be sending him to the Scrapbook Garden
for the Tando Mask and Inks so he can make one just like it lol.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for leaving a comment its much appriciated .
