You Rock, Drew!!

Happy Thursday!

I just love this sketch challengeSCS197 from SplitcoastStampers  . I needed a card for my nephew, Drew. He's a rockin' teenager who plays the drums in a teen rock band. Can you imagine how excited I was to find this cool set of stamps from Inkadinkadoo? Jacksonbelle has all the cool sets in her ebay store.

I thought this card needed to be as rockin' as the stamps. I have to tell you that I was having serious ribbon withdrawal. I didn't think Drew would think that was very "cool" for a guy so I added the black strip to the sketch and soothed my withdrawal with lots of glitz and glitter.

The base card is PTI new soft gold cardstock. I thought I would use this just for girly elegant cards but it works for this one, I think. The glittery layer is from K & Co. Halloween glitter pack. I embossed the SU eggplant layer in clear embossing powder using Versamark. Images are stamped in Black Staz-on.  To make them really rock, I traced them with a glue pen and added some Martha Stewart ultra-fine glitter. I think the drums look like they're on a drum with those neat Nestibilities circles.

You think he'll think it's cool, too?

Supplies: Cardstock - PTI soft gold, SU Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, K & Co. Halloween glitter pack
Ink - Stazon Black, Versamark
Supplies - Scor-Pal, clear embossing powder, heat gun, glue pen, MS glitter
Pin It!
