Just A Note

      Here at The Male Room we are looking for items with a musical theme for our current challenge, cards, scrapbook pages or gifts made for the men in your life.
     This began life as a white card blank, I have inked the edges with Distress Ink, The next step was to use a music stamp I have to create my own backing paper, this was done with Archival Black ink. The image is by Kat Van Gent and was printed on white card and trimmed to size. After going through all my stamps I couldn't find a suitable musical instrument, hard to believe I know.
     I do have a small phrase and a single decorative music note from Hot Off The Press, so I have used the phrase on the outside and the note on the inside as well as the envelope. There is no other sentiment on it as yet, I tend to leave that until I know who I'm going to send it to and why.
    

  I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Cardz 4 Guyz - Monochrome
Crafty Card Makers - Black & White

  2. Oh wow, love the guitar image. How clever to have bars of music as the fingerboard/neck.

    A very elegant card which actually would be fabulous for either male or female.
