Musical Teen

Truly Scrumptious –sketch

Quixotic - glitter and gloss

Stamping Royalty - neutral monochromatics (variations of one colour)

CRAFT - anything goes

Stamp with Fun - card for a girl.

Today's card uses an image from Paper Makeup Stamps, available at Quixotic Paperie and is perfect for a musical teen. I coloured her in with Promarkers in a range of blues, though from the look on her face, she ain't singing them! LOL. The image's mat has been cut using a Nestability die, Labels Eight and has been inked using Tim Holtz' Faded Jeans Distress Ink. Now I have finally succumbed and bought a die cutter, I have to make the most of it! LOL.
I hoped my choice of backing paper would be as youthful and free as the image itself, all backed onto bright blue holographic, which no doubt would appeal to a youngster. The sewing secures all the layers together, but also gives one 'extra layer' to the stack of mats in the middle, following the same layout of a twisted rectangle. Glittered ribbon lies behind a die-cut flower created from one of Marianne Designs dies, with a Promarker touching some of the embossed areas before a huge gemstone was attached to the middle.

  1. Gorgeous! I love it! :) Thank you for playing along at Quixotic Challenges!

  2. I would never pick out this stamp for myself but you colored her beautifully. I think most teens would really like it.
    I like the way you mottled the shirt which really ties in with the paper you used for the background.
    I still need to learn how to resize pictures in posts. The way you made yours square instead of rectangle, etc? Maybe you can tell me someday. :-)

  3. This is wonderful. Please e-mail me at
