Rococo Plus Music Drums and Microphone - Edna Taylor

Good morning and welcome to the blog today.

I have a couple of cards to share with you using the same colours of Nuvo Aquaflow but giving two totally different looks.
I love these pens, they are so versatile. 

My first card features the Drumbeat Rhythm set

Tonic products used - 

Rococo Plus Drumbeat Rhythm
Nuvo Aquaflow - Red apple, Spiced Ginger, Azure Blue
Memory Book Cascade layering die set for card base and sentiment plaque
Star Layering dies
Craft Perfect - Ruby Ritz glitter card, Chilli Red, Frosted Silver, Jet Black, Ultra Smooth white for the background.

I applied some of the ink from the aqua flow to my glass mat, spritzed lightly with water and using a dry paintbrush splattered the colours onto the Ultra White card stock.
For the star, I used the markers direct to paper and then spritzed lightly with water to break down the colours a little. I was going for vibrant here. :) 

I used some stamps from a free set I had in a magazine and stamped the sentiment and border.
I used notes from our previous Music die collection for a bit of interest to finish out the card. 

My second card features the fab Microphone Melody die set.

Tonic Products used - 
Rococo Plus Microphone Melody
Nuvo Aquaflow - Red Apple, Spiced Ginger, Azure Blue
Rococo Music notes
Tag layering dies
Craft Perfect - Jet Black, Ultra Smooth white (for background), Bright White, Frosted Silver
Nuvo Crystal drops - Ebony

I applied a generous amount of ink from the pens onto my glass mat and spritzed with water. I laid the ultra smooth cardstock on top and swirled it in the ink.
I love this technique. You never really know what you are going to get. :) 
I overstamped the background with Nuvo Metro Grey using a stamp from a free set I had with a magazine and just happened to be a fab microphone. I also used a sentiment from this set stamped onto a spare piece of the inked card backed with plain tags, distressed the edges and stapled together. 

The microphone is a large die and takes centre stage, cut in white and black and paper pieced with frosted silver. 
I added a couple of fine inked strips onto a black border and some Nuvo drops to finish.
