|Such a haunting melody|
I painted the background with Golden Fluid paints and then stamped a very old piece of line art in blue across the sky area. I then stamped the music (upside down).
To try and achieve an etherial look for the female image, I stamped it in Sepia Archival ink on white tissue paper before tearing it around the stamp. I then glued it to the postcard using Soft Gel medium with a layer over the top. This makes the image translucent. Here you can see the music and vintage floral stamp through the face.
The heart was cut from cardstock and painted with Quinacridone Magenta mixed with High solids gels (gives peaks). Once dry, I highlighted the top of the peaks with Iridescent Bronze.
I have no explanation for the heart, other than to say my muse is on a "We are making hearts" kick at the moment. This the the fourth different heart I've made this weekend!
