Musical Collage

Hero Arts is in the midst of unveiling their new stamps for 2011, and I've fallen for most of the catalog!  However, I think the one stamp I'm most anxious to have and play with is this one, called Musical Collage:


This morning, Jacqueline in France posted a tag on her blog that she put together using inspiration from another new Hero Arts stamp, and she inspired me to try the same idea using this bird collage as my model. Here's what I came up with:



Coincidentally, that medallion stamp is one given to me a few years ago by Jacqueline herself!  I plan to tweak this a little more, and then do as Jacqueline did: scan the final stamping into my computer and save it as a digital image; then I can print it out over whatever paper I choose (Jacqueline printed hers out on patterned paper, which would add another dimension to all that's going on) until I get the real thing.  Thanks, Jacqueline, yet again you've inspired me to try something different!

Supplies: white, ivory parchment, pink and kraft cardstocks, Memories art print brown ink, Hero Arts CG222 Musical Background, S4878 Old Letter Writing, K5354 French Post (just the postmark part), CL129 Anything Messages, Inkadinkado bird 97894, and an unknown clear medallion stamp, colored pencils, tea dye and worn lipstick distress inks, button, twine
