Life Will Be A Symphony Of Joy

Hello Everyone
When Darkroom Door recently released new frame stamps, amongst them was the Music Hall frame stamp. This, along with all the frame stamps, is a generously sized stamp which comes mounted onto cling foam. For the card I made as a DT sample I paired the frame stamp with stamps from the Harmony stamp set.
For my sample I actually went for a very simple card with the frame being a prominent feature and little details to conjure up music halls from days gone by.  The raspberry velvet representing the velvet coverings on the seat and the focus on the ladies who populated music halls, dressed in their finery, drop pearl ear-rings dangling from their shell-like ears and the glint of gold at their neck-line.
Listen to the music in all things and life will be a symphony of joy.oneA simple background of Gesso washed over vintage sheet music which is what I also stamped the sentiment onto and the frame. 
A stamped treble clef was tucked into a metal cabuchon frame. blogtwoThank You for your visit to this Darkroom Door post.

    An incredible card and I absolutely adore the addition of the beautiful raspberry ribbon! It’s the perfect colour and really does remind me of the theatre I used to visit regulary, in the town where I used to live. The seats were that exact colour!

    I love the stamps and the fonts used in them too.

    I can’t say how much I like this one. A really, well put together end result which you must be thrilled with – and proud of too! ~ Cobs. x

    The raspberry velvet was such a clever addition, it really does conjure up thoughts of the music hall days (not that I am quite old enough to remember them – lol). Love the sentiment too. Anne xx

    What a lovely musical make – and thank you so much for your lovely comment over at mine. There’s no need to apologise… I’m finding it ever harder to fit in visiting even my favourite blogs, like yours – but every now and then I just have time for an inspiration fix!
