' LAUGH ' THE MUSICAL

Hi, going with the theme of Music this month at Happy Daze I chose to use that fabulous stamp 'Laugh' by Paperbag Studios available at Happy Daze for both my DT makes, am so loving this happy face.


This card was made with sheet music which has been lightly stained with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Heat embossed the Laugh stamp.  The flower is made up of sheet music, flowers from stash, glitter spot net and filled with micro beads which were alcohol inked with gold.  The Happy Birthday stamp is from Darkroom Door.







The wooden box is something I picked up in Portugal, but I found a better one in the Happy Daze shop which is the same but with legs..........darn it  wish I had seen that one earlier. First Gesso was used,  acrylic paint and then rubbed down to age it a bit.  Heat embossed the Laugh stamp and the rest of the stamps are by TJ Designs.  Lined with Laura Ashley flocked card.  Lacquered to finish it off.

A tip -  give at least 3 - 4 days for the lacquer to properly dry otherwise you won't be able to open the box easily.  Am telling you this because I found out the hard way................won't tell you the words I used over this as they are not for your angelic ears.................lol


Look forward to seeing your creations for this month's theme over at Happy Daze.  Take care, hugs Annette x
