Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge # 8....Music....A friend...!


Good morning Krafty galz! I have a quick post this morning to share a card that I made for the challenge over at Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge blog. This week the challenge is MUSIC...love my tunes, love this challenge and I'm totally loving Kenny K digi stamps!!! The Glam Gang images are my fave and are so much fun to colour!

Well, for my card I just had to colour up this cutie, Rock Chick! Did you know that I was totally a Rocker/Heavy Metal chick in High School...OMGosh these images are bringing back memories,lol!
Well, back to the card...I used some MME papers and teamed it up with some AC cardstock and some Prima flowers with "metal" Making Memories flower brads in the centers. I had to add some ribbon and bling too...I just can't seem to make a card without it,smile! I coloured up Rock Chick with my Copics and cut her out with my Nesties and inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink. I left the image in the die and used it as a stencil! Oh and I found a really great little tip (I can't remember where I saw it...sorry...EDITED I found the link to the YouTube Video here) for cutting a small mat for your image. I use my Finger Grip craft Knife and cut going around the outside of the die! This is much better than how I was doing it before just tracing the outer edge and then cutting with the scissors.

Here is the inside....I thought this C.C. Designs sentiment was perfect for this card!
Well, Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!
Have a Rockin' day!
Hugs,

Love all the pizazz on your gorgeous cards. This one is just stunning! Thanks for the tip on cutting a mat for the nestie shapes. I was wondering how to that!

Delightfully different & I love her yellow gold guitar with the turquoise & pink. The metal brads work so well too - with the metal rock guitar affiliations.
