Sweet Music

This is a card made for the StampTV MIUM challenge this week, hosted by Cat!

I colored the image with Memento pastel markers, then covered with Delicata gold ink for shimmer. The cracked glass method is fun and easy to do. Gina has a great tutorial here:

The Cracked Glass Method

Stamp Set: Love is Friendship by Gina K. Designs

I do not have an 'oval' piercing template. But Splitcoaststampers (SCS) has a really helpful tutorial showing how to use the square Stampin' Up template to create circles and ovals for perfect piercing. You can see both the video and the pictorial steps that Beate made here:

Perfect Oval and Circle Piercing
