Okay, so who's the worst Aunt in the entire world?? ME!!! I totally spaced that my nephew's birthday is tomorrow (boo!! hiss!!) I know right? Well, to make up for the royal blunder, I thought I should make Ethan a card that just says WOW!! Or at least I hope it does. But then again, the wow factor probably only lurks on the inside of the card once he sees the "green" gift. Anyway, regardless, I hope he likes it and I certainly hope it makes up for his Aunt being completely forgetful!
You're a Rockstar!!
The card base is Kraft cardstock. The background is my handmade brick wall on white cardstock, run through with the brick embossing plate. DI's of Vintage Photo, Antique Linen and Wild Honey and hints of Poppy Parade SU ink color the bricks. A smothering of Gesso for mortar and a glaze of UTEE over sporadic sections.
Next is the curtain. I wanted the rock star to look as though he was on a very special stage and thought a red curtain against the brick wall would be perfect. The curtain is heavy burgundy cardstock that I've crunched up into a wad and bent until pliable. Using my brayer, I've run Antique Linen over the top to add more depth and character to the folds. These pieces were then hot glued to over the brick. The lights, silhouette fans and the rockstar billboard are all free images I've downloaded via the Internet to bring the scene together.
The image is another fantastic drawing from Alessandro Piedimonte, whom I referred to in an earlier post and I hope my copic coloring has done him justice. His images are by request only.
Sure hope you've enjoyed your visit and I thank you so much for your time and comments.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...
