Dare I say it?? Yep, I used the Atlantic papers for my background on this card. I just love that there are soooo many great patterns that can be used for many different styles of cards. See, not all of them need to be nautical or fishie themed.
I cut out the black rectangle with the 3x4 Insert It Die-namics and then run it thru my Vagabond with a Chevron embossing folder. The circle is from Blueprints3, the piercing around the edges gave my circle the extra something to show off the stamps.
I stamped the sentiment twice, once in Black Licorice ink and again in Crisp Cantaloupe. I cut out the flag part of the sentiment and popped it up with some foam dimensionals, right over the top of the black. I then added in some yellow by stamping the stars randomly around the edges. I added a few more stars on the backdrop in Black to help balance my design.
I stamped the guitar in Smokey Slate ink, cut it out and then gave it a spritz of the Sheer Shimmer Mist. This is a rocker card, after-all! It needed just a touch of GLAM!
I love how Jen designed the Arrows -n- Elements stamp set to have the bits and parts work together. The Flag pieces are separate images, but they match up with the diagonals of the rectangle frame. ♥ that!
There are still a few more days to play along with the July SFYTT . Check it out.
