You Rocked It–C4C #224


Hello there! Happy Saturday! Saturdays mean Crazy 4 Challenges and this week Kristine is challenging us to get inspired by music. Today’s project can be inspired by a song, an artist, an instrument, music notes, whatever “music inspiration” means to you.

I was inspired by a piece of patterned paper I had in my stash that I’d stamped with Sheet Music Background. I decided to keep most to the card neutral and add pops of color so I started off with a Primitive White card stock base. Then I embossed a piece of Kraft Core card stock with Stripes Stencil and distressed it so the stripes would show. I matted this with Kraft card stock and popped it up on the base, then adhered the music paper on an angle. Then I added some elements from LLD Accent It – Rock and Roll Die-namics – the star was cut from Red Hot card stock, the guitar from Kraft card stock with a Black Licorice card stock accent, and Tangy Orange card stock and Orange Fizz card stock make up the flames. Before I popped up the guitar on foam, I added some loops of hemp cord. The sentiment, from LLD Document It – rock On, was stamped with Black Licorice ink on Primitive White card stock cut with Dimensional Banners Die-namics, and popped up on foam. To finish it off, I added some enamel dots.

The inside has a sentiment from Simply Fabulous Sayings with Black Licorice ink and Red Hot ink.


And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
