Music Soothes the Soul!

This is my entry for the Stampman Fortnightly Challenge and I think it's obvious that the theme, this time, is Music!
I sponged Distress Inks over sequin waste for the background, then stamped subtle musical notes over, in Distress Inks. I then stamped a couple of darker swirls of music, top left and bottom right to balance the images. I double mounted musical images and quotes onto gold and brown card as I wanted an antiqued effect rather than the starkness of black and white music.
I think I acquired the stamps from Stamp Club when I used to subscribe to a monthly box but I've had them so long that I'm not sure.
Here's the front of the card which is a mounted stamped collage.
Thanks for visiting!
