Rock On

Happy Saturday!
With so many birthdays coming up in the next few months, I was happy to have some time to play and created this masculine, collage style card.

I began by masking off a piece of white cardstock using some Post-It tape.  I first did some acetate inking in the background using just 2 colours of Distress Oxides; Peeled Paint and Bundled Sage, rubbed onto a piece of clear acetate.
I placed the piece inside my Misti, then stamped using the same colours and sponged along the edges to help define the main area.
The Rock Silhouette is a new one for me from Impression Obsession and I stamped that using some black Memento ink, then added the sentiment.
After I removed the tape for masking, I scored a line around the inked area as a frame.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
