Funky Fossil "Guitar Hero" Birthday Card

Another productive early morening start for me, making this card, ideal for a male teenager or somebody into rock.  I've used the new Funky Fossil "Guitar Hero" stamp set that was released last week.

For the background of this card, I used a background I had prepared a few weeks back, using Dylusions "Lemon Zest" and "Fresh Lime" spray paints.

I lay the Funky Fossil "Scattered Straw" mask over the top of the card and taped the edges with low tack masking tape.  I then lay a circle stencil over the top of that so that the circle was in the middle of the card and again taped the edges.  I then used a blending tool with "Peacock Feathers" Distress Oxide Ink to fill the circle area with colour.  Removing the tape and stencils left a lovely crisp patterned circle.

I lined the guitar stamps across the middle of the patterned circle and then stamped them and the "Party Like A Rockstar" sentiment in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.  

I then stamped the guitar images again on a plain piece of white card, in the same ink and while it was wet, coated it in Wow! Clear embossing powder and heat set.

Finally, I coloured the guitars with Posca Pens, cut out the images, edged them with a black Sharpie pen and adhered the shapes on to the card.
