Hi all, and today’s card uses a background paper from Crafter’s Companion of fab blue and white stars, just brilliant for the theme I have chosen for this all conquering hero of the rock world. Doesn’t the image remind you of a character from Scooby Doo? LOL. I think it is those flared trousers! He was actually a kids’ colouring book freebie I once found on the internet, but I thought he was great for all those star-struck wannabes, those teenagers who dream the dream. I coloured him in with my Promarkers,having incorporated a white triangle to this image, the shape being used this week over at Midnight Madness. Whilst being unusual a shape for a sketch I think, it really adds dynamism, helping to inject some energy to the card. Maybe, that is just me! LOL. The red and white striped paper echoes the star spangled banner as do hopefully the extra blue and red triangle card mats behind the white one. The music notes were punched out of both matt and shiny black cardstock and I also popped on transparent stars for further dimension. The sentiment was created on the PC and then matted onto holographic silver foiled card before being mounted on foam pads.
Hope you like today’s offering to blogland!
