Pieces and Parts bloghop at Smeared and Smudged Blog

Pieces and Parts bloghop at Smeared and Smudged Blog The theme this month is Pieces and Parts. Use at least two stamp or digi images combined to make a "new" image or focal point on your project. So, you can combine the top half of one stamp with the bottom of another, or add a part of one to another, or even build a background from several images, it's up to you! Use your imagination and have fun with it. We can't wait to see what you come up with! Also, don't forget the S&S rule that is has to be stamped somewhere (digi stamps are fine), which we're sure you won't miss with this month's theme. Here is my entry:
I used the Smeared Ink Digi Dead Dancer Falling. ,My Paperworld Viva Decor Clearstamp (the roses) and All Night Media rubber stamp 550j74 (the music notes). I printed the digi twice, once on cardstock and once on normal paper to use as a mask. I made an Oval using a colluzle plate( you will need both pieces the oval and the piece that you cut the oval from). I masked the digi and the part of the card where the music notes will be(using the outlining of the oval colluzzle cut ) and stamped the roses with the clear stamps. Leave the masks on the card and use Tim Holtz distress inks (peeled paint, dusty concord and tumbled glass) and color the roses. Then remove the masks and put the inside oval over the part with the roses and the digi. Then stamp the music notes with black stazon and remove the mask.

I hope you've enjoyed taking a look at my project. Below is the blog roll for all of the participants this month, so please hop through from blog to blog and leave them some comments about their work- we all love to hear what you think! Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Very nice use of the notes and florals for this theme. Classic colors really add to the feel of the dancer. Your embellishment flowers are a perfect accent.
