You Rock

Today I have a card I made for one of my daughter's friends. They both perform in a band that plays at local venues and this weekend they celebrated her 13th birthday. She plays a mean guitar and is very into classic rock but she is also not a girly girl so pink and glitter was not going to work this time around.

I actually used various distress inks to make the background and then sprayed a little water over it for a mottled look. I then lightly stamped some sheet music and inked the edges. The focal image was made with clear embossing powder and then I sponged some more distress ink around the embossed image.

I was a bit worried that it would look masculine because of the colors I chose, but since I kept it on the lighter side, I think it works perfectly for a young lady.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets - CTMH You Rock (retired); PTI Background Basics: Sheet Music
Paper - SS White, Twilight
Ink - Versamark; Walnut Stain, Broken China, Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, and Shabby Shutters distress inks
Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles, PTI By the Numbers, MFT Fishtail Flags Die-namics, clear embossing powder


  1. OMGosh, Cibele, she will love it! If you did the splat stuff on your image I envy you!! I need to master that and I get too scared of ruining everything. LOL Your image is gorgeous and the die cuts and sheet music are perfect for it!

  2. It's wonderful - not everyone loves girly colors and this is an excellent card! Thanks for sharing!


Sharing your thoughts makes my day and I appreciate that you take the time to leave me a comment.
