Metallic Rock

Hey there People!  How has your weekend been so far?  I spent the ENTIRE day yesterday in my room creating!!  Unfortunately, I can only share one project now (what a tease!) as the other projects are for publication!  Very exciting, not to mention, nerve racking, for me!!

By now, you'd think I'd have male teen cards down to a science.  NOPE.  While I have no clue as to what type of cards to make for female teens, I find I struggle with the male teen cards in a whole different way.  All these kids are into Xbox, paintball and air soft guns and music.  Great!! Except, how many different cards can one come up with, year after year, with these same themes?!!  I'm tellin' ya~~~teens are a difficult bunch, in more ways than one!! hehe

For the life of me, I could not get a decent picture of this card to save my life!  The background is a piece of Rock Star black metal embossed with the Alterations texture fade embossing folder Sheet Music.  I sanded off the raised portions, exposing the aluminum metal.  The guitar is from Inkadinkadoo's Rock Star, and was stamped with SU's Riding Hood Red.  I then used my VersaMarker to go over the main body and the top of the guitar neck (I have no idea what the proper terms for these areas are called.  Basically, the solid portions!) and clear embossed with Ranger clear embossing powder.  I think the combination of the metal and the shiny embossing is what did this photo in!  To much shine and glare no matter what angle I tried!

To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment, from Tami Mayberry's Live Life Loud, in the corner with more Riding Hood Red.  Pretty CAS, but perfect for a teenager to give to his buddy! No gush allowed!

I'm going to try and clean up this mess so that I can finish up another project that I have in the works!  I'm on a creative roll and I need to keep it going before the mojo decides it needs another break!! 

'Till then................take some time for exploring some creativity in what ever medium tickles your fancy!
