OK, so my mojo has definitely left the building. I love this image and I love these colors--I just don't like what I did with them, LOL! I going to make some Christmas ornaments with this image but I'll use pinks, black, green, and white--I think they'll be gorgeous and I'll be sure to post them. Anyway, back to today ;-)
The image was stamped on Gina K. Pure Luxury 80 lb paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored with Copic markers, and cut out. I also used a little gold pen on the fan frame and the music staff, although it doesn't show up in this picture. I used a border punch on the Soft Suede layer and a Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder on the Dusty Durango layer. The sentiment was punched out with my SU! large oval punch, then I punched a couple of slots for ribbon and added some flat backed jewels.
