The Conductor

Hello Friends!

Here is a quick and easy card today!

 I stamped the Rubbernecker's Conductor in Rangers Black Soot Distress ink and Clear Embossed it.  My craft table is a little warped, so when I stamped it I didn't get a perfectly stamped image.  When this happens I just take a marker the same color and fill it in and go over the spot with a Versamark pen and clear emboss over it.  Good as new and I don't have to start all over!  I hand cut him out and popped him up. The sentiment is Rubbernecker's Music SKU:582-05 stamped on vellum.  The edges of the designer paper and the Sizzix embossed Spellbinders Circle are sponged with Adirondack Sandal ink.  Quick and easy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

  1. I just adore this, Ellen! Reminds me of a special band director we once had when I was in high school. Perfect!

  2. I love it all, the layout, the colors, the sentiment. The edges of the circle are a nice aged look to complete the theme.

  3. Hi Ellen ! It's nice to see you here. Awesome card ! Very elegant with the black & white. The background is fabulous and love how you squared it up and added the matting behind each one. Cool image & sentiment as well ! Maybe it was easy for you, but it looks like a lot of thought went into it ! Have a great day, Hugs, Shirley
