Three Muses - Enjoy music

It is almost 5 months since my previous blog post. In these months I only participated in some ATC swaps of my local stamp store. For the rest I had no inspiration or desire for stamping. Now I feel like the inspiration is coming back, so I looked for a nice and easy challenge. This week's theme at The Three Muses is a perfect fit: Say it with music. I created an accordion card using a step-by-step description in the October issue of Craft Stamper. The card is 12 by 3.5 inch with folds at every 3 inch. The music score in the background is made with a Tim Holtz Idea-ology mask. The strips of patterned paper were put together and then stamped. Thanks for looking!

Het is bijna 5 maanden geleden dat ik voor het laatst iets op deze blog geschreven heb. In die periode heb ik alleen meegedaan met enkele ATC swaps. Voor de rest zijn de stempels en inkten niet uit de kast geweest. Nu begint het weer een beetje te prikkelen. The Three Muses hebben een leuk thema: Say it with music. Ik heb een accordeon kaart gemaakt zoals beschreven in het oktober nummer van CraftStamper. Deze kaart is 12 bij 3,5 inch, waarbij iedere pagina 3 inch breed is. De notenbalk in de achtergrond is gemaakt met een mask van Tim Holtz. De strookjes design papier heb ik tegen elkaar gelegd en daarna bestempeld. Bedankt voor het kijken!

I wondered where you'd been! This is a terrific come-back piece, Mark. I like the accordion style, and it's beautifully done. Hopefully, your muse is back and we'll see you next week!

Oh sure. You turn up out of nowhere and show us all up by creating a wonderful, three dimensional piece of art. :O) Seriously, beautiful work!

Such a beautiful work of art, Mark. It seems like several artists have rejoined the challenges after lengthy breaks.

Hello Mark. It is good to see you back, especially as you have chosen the Muses to get you started on blogging again. I have never seen an accordion card but I like what I see. Your art pieces are wonderful. Thanks so much for joining in.
