Quote & Lyrics Challenge Music/Passion

The Quote and Lyric Challenge over at The Craft Barn is Passion/Music.  I went for 'music' and chose a song by Abba - 'Thank You For The Music'  which was first released on  Abba, The Album in 1977 and then as a single in 1983.  I am sure I will not be the only one using this fabulous song for the challenge!


The background is Raspberry, Watermelon and Snow Cone Gelatos which I used in the same way as DI's in this instance, mixing with water on my craft sheet and dragging the tag through etc.  Then I embossed with Spellbinders M-Bossabillities Music then went over the raised areas with Treasure Gold.  The music and notes are shapes from Tando Creative and I coloured them with Seedless Preserves Distress Stain then added more Treasure Gold.  The lyrics are written on card coloured the same as the background and the mat is white card coloured with the Distress Stain.  The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

If you can, please hop over and see the brilliant DT makes and fab entries at the Craft Barn. I am off to stay with my Daughter and Son in Law for a few days so lots of time to cuddle my litte Granddaughter Freya, yippee! Will try and catch up with you while I am there, I haven't been able to manage many visits this week, I am so very sorry!  Thank you so much for visiting me - I appreciate it so much!  Take Care.  Christine xx

Beautiful tag and colour scheme. I thought about doing this song but couldn't think 'how' to do it. So extra kudos to you.

What a lovely tag. Nice song lyrics. Had to look up the group, though. Sorry I’m late visiting, but my internet woes continue to give me fits.

Love the way you have done your background, never thought of using Gelatos that way, Thank you.(still relatively new to them but certainly finding them versatile)
