Born to Rock

Good morning!

It’s time for another new release at Whimsy Stamps, and oh my goodness…I was certainly challenged with this little Rock Star from the Goth Star clear stamp set!  I am a country music fan, so I really had to put my thinking cap on…lol!  I envisioned him being on a stage rockin’ out with his hard core rock fans.


I stamped the image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with the following copic markers.  Once I was finished coloring I took some time and fussy cut him out…even the tiny guitar cord!

Born-to-Rock2I started with a 5 1/2″ square card base.  To that I added a layer of black, and a layer of red that was stamped in black with the Goth Skull background stamp.  The next set of layers start with the striped layer measuring 4 3/8″ x 5 3/8″.


I die cut a circle using one of the dies from the Pierced and Stitched Circle Die Set and inked it up with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink.

I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on a black scrap of paper before adhering to the assembled card with foam tape.

As always, there is an abundance of inspiration to be found in the store here.
