Sketch #106:

 I love using textured stamps, as they are so much fun to use to create your own background!  I like creating my own papers!! 

My card:

I have to admit, I have never used music type stamps before, so for this card that was my goal.  I wanted to use the sheet music as I have used the other textured background stamps from this set already.  I didn't want to overdo it with all the textures, so I just used the sheet music from Timeless Textures. So thinking into it, I used the stamp to create a background sheet and then stamped it yet again with another ink to create two separate pieces, as if I were highlighting part of the song!  Got kind of creative with this one, really putting some thought into it!! Yay me! :)

The sentiment I used is from the set Christmas Swirls.

Head over to Katie's blog for some more Skipping Stones Design inspiration!
