Creative Chaos

Svenja is setting our challenge over at Daring Cardmakers this week - she'd like to see some sheet music on our projects.

I couldn’t find my book of old and damaged sheet music so I printed a freebie score onto copy paper (it’s Beethoven —Für Elise— if any musically literate folk are trying to make it out through the other stuff here!)

I use my Gelli plate to do a print from a magazine onto the musical score, tinted it with Distress inks, stamped some circles and a sentiment (which I curved slightly before stamping to follow the shape of her face a bit more closely). The circles have a tiny bit of grey shading to give them some depth.

Creative chaos is a polite term for the usual state of my craft room!

That's an interesting technique, I haven't heard of using a magazine to create a gelli print before and I love the result, a really great card xx

Oh boy. I did not see her face till I read about it specifically and then went back. Geez. I need more caffeine LOL

You have good success with that technique! I dont know anyone else who does it.

Wow, this is lovely in the first place. But a gelliplate transfer? Congratulations for getting such a good print! Für Elise is very fitting for this image and I love all the other details, too.
