Market Street Stamps Sketch Challenge 4

Happy Wednesday!  I hope everyone is having a great week. Today is my last day off, so I decided to make another card. I think my mojo may have returned, but I won't officially say it. For this card I decided to follow Market Street Stamps Sketch Challenge 4. I love challenges. It's a great way to push your creativity or help you out of a funk.

Card Details:
Layers: decrease by 1/4 inch.
Background: The stamp is " Vintage Music" by Market Street Stamp. I stamped the image whisper white by Stampin' up. Once the image was stamped I sponged  " Chocolate Chip," "Close to Coca," and  " Creamy Caramel," which are all by Stampin up.  After that I misted the paper with water and crinkled it up. I then let the paper dry. Once it was all dried I hit the high points with  "Close to Cocoa," " Chocolate Chip," and Tim Holtz distress ink "Tea Dye."

Paper: Stampin' Up, and Paper Trey Ink.
Ink: Stampin' up, Tim Holtz, and Memento.
Stamps: Market Street Stamps " Vintage Music," and " Hippie Chic."
Thread: Stampin' up. This thread was dyed using Tim Holtz distress ink  " Tea Dye."
Other: Spellbinders Nestabilities " Labels Eight,"  Diamond Glaze(on the base of the card), Liquid pearls, and  pop dots
Image colored with:  Prisma colored pencils.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
