Have a coffee filter spread open on your table when you use glitters or embossing powders. It will catch the excess and make it easier to siphon particles back into its bottle. Coffee filters can be resued multiple times.

1. Sponge edges of the decorative cardstock with Tea Dye and Rusty Hinge ink. Add 5 strips of 1/8” double sided tape across the top to create staff lines and cover with Black Ice glitter. Add to the dark brown layer and rust base..
2. Die Cut the flourish in black and add Black Ice glitter using brushable glue. When dry, use dimensional glue to add to the left side of the page.
3. Stamp Music Background on the rust rectangle in Toffee and add to the front of the page. Layer picture and dark brown layer on top of this.
4. Stamp and heat emboss Music Label on cream cardstock, using VersaMark ink and Detail Gold EP. Cut out with die and sponge edges with ink. Use oval die slightly larger than the center oval as a mask to lightly sponge ink just inside the oval center. Use foam tape to pop up on slightly larger dark brown die cut that has edges sponged with dark brown ink. Add this to the page on the right side of the staff.
5. Stamp violin, clefs, and notes several times with VersaMark ink on cream cardstock and heat emboss with Super Thick Gold EP. Fussy cut, then cover with more VersaMark ink and add more of the EP. Heat until molten, then quick stamp with the Treble Swirl (see Stamping in Embossing Powder in the Tips and Techniques section). Rub dark brown ink over the top. Use foam tape to pop up on the flourish and dimensional glue to add to the staff.
6. Make flowers as follows:
Tissue Flowers – Use Blossom 3 to cut out three different sizes from several layers of tissue paper. For the large flower use three tissue layers of each size. For the smaller flowers use three layers of only the two smaller sizes. Sponge each piece with Antique Linen and Tea Dye ink, carefully. On every other layer add a little Rusty Hinge Ink. Stamp all over each layer with Treble Swirl in Rusty Hinge ink. Combine layers to create the flower using a small brad. Scrunch up tightly and then open layers as desired. Add glitter to the edges with brushable glue.
Black Flowers – Use tattered flower die to cut out various sizes. Stamp each with Musical Background using toffee chalk ink. When dry, use the stylus and foam pad to mold flowers and layer (see Flower Making in Tips and Techniques). Using the stylus on the back makes the petal shape to the back and using it on the front causes them to curl toward the center.
Brown Flowers – Brush silk flower with Static Free, then stamp and heat emboss Treble Swirl, using VersaMark ink and Gold Detail EP (heat only enough to melt EP as some flowers will melt),
Use dimensional glue to add flowers around the picture. Add pearls to the centers and pearl swirls.
