A Splash of Mustard with Waltzingmouse

Hi Scrappers,

A quick post today as I have 49 minutes until the Play Date Cafe challenge closes for this week! It's a splash challenge this time - black, white and a splash of mustard,. Since my mojo has got up and walked right out the door (again) I thought I'd get some inspiration from the Waltzingmouse weekly sketch challenge as well:

I used MME papers and the background is the piano stamp from the Musical Backgrounds set at Waltzingmouse. It's the first time I've used it and I love how it's come out so bold and clear. It's quite a 'busy' background so I kept the geometric pattern with the papers very simple.

Hope you're having a fabulous week and thanks for stopping by,

  1. Wow!!!! I really love your stamped piano key background, just so perfect and even...really love your take on the sketch and what a fabulous card!

  2. Wow, those piano keys look so beautiful. I have never seen a card using those images before and they are striking! What a great take on the sketch too. I bet it was tough to get those keys lined up so perfectly, great job.

  3. Oh such a GREAT background! I am with Cathy, I have never seen the keys made into a background like that! I am so excited that even happier that I have this set now :) The little squares of color are fantastic and just POP even more. Thanks so much for the inspiration :)
