Rocker Chick!

This is such a cute stamp and I think it's a perfect for teenagers!!  This one is called "Rocker Chick".  I also thought this would be perfect for the theme of this weeks challenge...distress it.  I have colored the image with Copics then layered in on green and black card stock.  I used Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink on the edges of the image.  The designer papers are from the Pink Paislee - London Market Collection paper pad.  Other supplies used are; Doodlebug brads, Charmalong Music Treble Clef, Crafts ribbon, Wild Orchid flowers and a MS Leaf punch.

KRAFTIN' KIMME STAMPS RELEASE DAY HOP!

 
Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of amazing creations featuring new stamp sets from all of our artists for our May release!  
First off, there is the fabulous new spring set from artist, Annie Rodrigue called CHASE YOUR DREAMS, the mini stamps called ITTY BITTY FRIENDS, an awesome new masculine set from artist Emilie Goulet called WILD & CRAZY GUYS and the perfect set for wedding season from Cheryl Grant called HAPPILY EVER AFTER!
There is also MORE new goodies in the shop including new paper pads plus MORE new Kimmie's Sparkles and a totally new section of fun embellishments called BEAUTIFUL BUTTONS!!
 
 
Wow, wasn't that a great week of gorgeous projects from all the Krafty ladies and guests!  My release day hop card features Arianna from the "Itty Bitty Friends" stamp set. 
I thought this stamp would be great used for a shaker card.  After I colored the image with Copics I add some Stardust Stickles to the body of the mermaid.  I used yellows, blues and green chalks on the background behind the mermaid.  Then I added pearls using the Icy White pearl pen to give the look of bubbles.  Then for a pop of color I thought the color of coral beads would be perfect.  I used the scalloped Spellbinders to frame the opening in the card.

Not that anyone enjoys making cards to express sorrow, but when it's necessary it's good to have some handy!  These sentiments will always be your go to when the need arises!  I've used the Spellbinders 3DM Bossabilities on this card.  It's actually only part of the folder.  I love that it embosses and leaves an empty space at the same time.  Takes the guess work out of double embossing.  The butterflies are an MS punch.
