Happy Birthday Violin

Good Morning!
Donna Phelan back again.  Today I will be sharing a Masculine Birthday card with you.
The Tutti Designs Store has so many wonderful dies for all of your card making needs!  This month we are enjoying Musical Instruments, check out the June Release!  So many instruments and each and every one amazingly detailed!
Here's the great die I chose to use for today!
I die cut this fantastic Violin from Chipboard and Brown card stock, layered the 2 together and then backed with a piece of White card stock so the details would show through.  I then smooshed Versa Mark ink all over the front of the cut, covered it with Clear Embossing Powder, heated it to seal, and now I had an awesome shiny, glossy Chipboard die cut to play with! 

I thought to show off this wonderful instrument I would create a wood grained background.  Taking my White card stock I scored every 1/2 inch.  Then using many inks I just swiped them up and down the scored paper until I got the look I liked.  I think the background really compliments the wooden Violin.  Stamped some musical notes and my Happy Birthday sentiment in Raven Black, which I also covered and heated with Clear Embossing Powder, to add some shine.  And why place the panel on straight when you can add a jaunty look to it and make it all wonky???
Everyday you will find new and creative ideas right here, on the Tutti Designs Blog!
