A huge honour

I was thrilled when Rachel Greig of Darkroom Door fame contacted me earlier in the month, and asked me if I'd be guest designer for the drd blog. Rachel asked me to feature the new Music Collection, seeing as I'm a musician. I think you'll agree that the whole collection is marvellous - such a wonderful range of stamps and accessories. The only problem was deciding which of the many ideas I had to use!

These are the projects I made for her. All the details of the making of them are described on her blog, but materials are listed here.

1) A pair of atcs
I stamped the images several times, and cut out desired sections to build up a collage.

2) An orchestral rehearsal card
The image for this card came from Nancy Dooren's blog - thank you, Nancy! The instruments were stamped onto shrink plastic, and heat shrunk.

3) Pencil box
I bought this box in a sale for 49p, and customised it for my music highlighter pens. I forgot to photograph the other side of the box, which uses 2 more quotes.

Stamps: Darkroom Door Melody, Harmony and Chorus

Inks : 1) DI Scattered Straw and Antique Linen; Adirondack Willow and Lettuce; Archival Black
2) Brilliance Coffee Bean; DI Tattered Rose and Walnut Stain
3) Adirondack Dabbers Snow Cap, Cloudy Blue and Purple Twilight; Archival Black; DI Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord; Adirondack Pink Sherbert and Wild Plum

Extras : Shrink Plastic; MM Copper Eyelets; PM Large Eyelet; Beads from my collection; Vellum;Vintage Image; Wooden box; DRD Wordstrip Music and pp Legato; Perfect Pearls gold

Hi Ros and congrats with your beautiful work! I especially love the 'shrunk' instruments (not always easy to accomplish) which compliment your card in the perfect way! I will visit the blog later today too.
