MFTWSC117-rock and roll birthday

Fun stuff! I am still having so much fun with these new stamps and Die-namics by Laina Lamb from My Favorite Things. I am so still having fun stamping the hounds tooth pattern from Spring Backgrounds onto Kraft card stock with Black Licorice Ink. I paired them all up to make a great card masculine card for my BIL's birthday. 

I used this week's WSC sketch to make the card. I also used the Mix6 challenge,create splatter, from Splitcoast stampers the other week. It was a fun way to add some extra detail and a splash of color to my card. 

I first cut a large circle using my Circle Stax 1 Die-namics. I then distressed the edges and add some Kraft ink them. Next I smeared a little orange and grey gelatos into a paint pallet and added a bit of water to make a pool of color. I used the stippling brush (Inlcuded in the gelato pack) to pick up the color and gentle taped the brush on the edge of my finger, creating the splatter effect. I did this with each of the two colors. After it was dry (used my heat gun to speed up the process) I went and stamped the words, "rock Star" in Black Licorice ink.   This stamp is part of the Rock On stamp set. Love it!

I then die cut the guitar and flames, both from Accent it-Rock and Roll Die-namics. Before I added them to my circle element, I used Electric Red Ink to sponge the edges of my Tangy Orange cs. 

In the background, you can also see I added a strip of Black Licorice Harlequin Border Die-namics.I grundged it up a bit with some Picket Fences Crackle Paint (man, I love this stuff!). 

Following the sketch, I used the Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut a double ended fishtail flags banner piece and stamped the birthday sentiment. This one is from the Playlist stamp set. 
A few metal brads, one small and one large, and some stitching pull the whole card together. 

Here is this week's sketch:
