STAMPING OVER TEXT
After a bit of playing around this solution seems to be OK (not brilliant but OK). I stamped onto the background, then painted over it with gesso, which provided a nice "toothy" base for colouring. The notes can still be seen underneath but much more subtly.
I then outlined the stamped image using a fine black marker pen. As I was using an acrylic stamp (a freebie from a magazine) I could have tried re-stamping the image over the top but I quite like the hand-drawn look and wasn't totally confident about how well I could align the two pictures.
