Mark's Finest Paper Blog Hop Day 4



My first project using the Musical Holiday set is a Christmas CD filled with my favorite holiday songs. I stamped the musical score on white, masking to stamp more images around it. Sponged with an apricot ink and then Smooch Spritzed over in gold. Cut to fit CD and used Modge Podge to adhere. You don't want to have the stamped layer too thick on the CD so it doesn't interfere with play. I decorated the CD sleeve with additional images from this set and adorned with a red satin bow.
For my second project I used a Sizzix ornament die to create my card, Copic markers with some gold Smooch pearlized accent ink also available at MFP. The horn really shimmers with this lovely ink.
