Music Man

It's my turn to choose the theme for this fortnights Craft-Room Challenge and the theme I've chosen is Music.
The sponser for the challenge is Tando Creative.

Before I show you my DT piece I'd like to thank all of you that took part in the Bling Glitter and Sparkle challenge, we had some fabulous entries.

For my DT piece I made a hanging.
I used mountboard for the base and coloured it with various colours of Distress ink and I used a couple of Crafters Workshop masks to give the base a bit of a pattern.
I stamped the poster, G man, guitar and Music Man onto card, cut them out and coloured them with vintage photo Distress ink. The rest of the images were stamped dirictly onto the base.
I painted the Tando Creative chipboard word music and the chipboard music at the bottom with black acrylic paint and attached them to the base.

The stamps that I used are,
PaperArtsy, the one man band, music man and G man.
Hampton art, the jazz band, poster and jazz age.
