Piano City

Months ago I pinned a really awesome poster (click to see the whole beautiful image…this one is cropped):

I finally got around to making the card today:

Piano City - by karen @ carefree creations

Of course my hubby did not see a piano until I told him (even in the original poster), so I’m not sure if my niece will get it or not, but as she plays the piano, is going to college for said playing, and I generally send her music-related cards, my fingers are crossed that she’ll get it 🙂

I also used a current challenge on SplitCoast: SCS CAS challenge #279 – sunsets.

My sunset starts just above the sentiment in pink and then transitions to purple with blue at the top (all in distress ink). I added “stars” with some water drops. I recently splurged on all the Distress Inks and honestly, I am loving them. I’ve heard the hype for years, but never really believed it….but dang the inks are awesome!

Oh and something else I tried for the first time – multi-layered sentiment. One day I’ll get bold and try the different colored version too, but for this, all three layers of sentiment are the same color. I really love the added dimension, without having to trim tiny tiny pieces of foam adhesive.

Thanks for taking a peek!
