A Year of ATCs? - Day 117

This is my 117th ATC in my Year of ATCs

I have used a magazine freebie stamp - a line of music - embossing it several times with an opaque embossing powder. I trimmed this to a rectangle slightly smaller than 2.5 by 3.5 inches and die cut 3 shapes from it - Paisley or tear-drop shapes from Reverse Confetti.
I added Picked Raspberry distress ink to the background and Peacock Feathers to the inner shapes - leaving these in the shapes until after I added the colour. This means that they have the white rim.

My quote is from 12th Night - If Music be the food of love, play on... printed on the computer, die cut and then distressed around the edges. I added this with a heart shaped brad and then added the whole to a white rectangle.

Orsino is asking for more music because he is frustrated in his courtship of Countess Olivia. He muses that an excess of music might cure his obsession with love, in the way that eating too much removes one's appetite for food.

Happy Crafting!


  1. WoW - now that is very cool :-) xx

  2. Love how you matched up the lines
    through the different pieces.
    Remind me of raindrops - we've had
    so much rain this weekend that there
    is lots of flooding - luckily not around
    my house.
    thanks for haring.
