Sweet Sunday Sketch 193 {rock star birthday}

Hello Sunday and hello my crafty friends. It's been two weeks since our last Sweet Sunday Sketch, so that means it's time for a new one. I needed a boy birthday card for this week, so this sketch was perfect. 

Here it is. 

And here is my card. 

I used two Reverse Confetti stamp sets to make my card-Inner Rock Star and Celebrate Cake. The designer paper from Glitz (Finnley) was my inspiration for the card. Since I knew I was making a boy card, I stuck with black and  greys and added a touch more of color with the light blue (Sno Cone) ink and coordinating enamel dots.

The "rock star" sentiment was masked and stamped from a larger stamp, so I could use only the single word. You can get lots of extra mileage from your stamps by doing this. 

I repeatedly stamped the birthday sentiment in a graduated color scheme, from lightest to darkest. I then added some splatter with some Black Licorice re-inker. It thought it helped give a more "grunge" look, perfect for a boy. 

Since the guitar image has a heart in the center, and this was a boy card, I covered it up with a small punched out circle and add topped it with a small silver star. Again, more mileage with my stamps.  I also scattered a few more stars throughout my card, along with those enamel dots. 

Here is the list of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team. Visit them all and see what cool things they have created with this sketch.
