Rock Star

I wanted to enter CD Sunday's Rock Star challenge but it did take quite a bit of trawling through CDs before I found an image I liked. (I had initially hoped to find a female rock star silhouette, but it was not to be.)

I also decided to use the sketch from Stamplorations .

This image is from Polkadoodles not for girls CD and was part of a topper , so I needed to  crop it out. I also changed the background colour to tone with my scrap of striped paper. In Silhouette Studio, I traced the figure and cut it out in black card and stuck it over the printed image, to give it more presence. I also cut out the headphones (also from Polkadoodles Not for Girls) and the sentiment (using the text feature).  On the base card, I used a music notes stencil and grey ink.

I'd also like to enter this at That's Crafty (stencils/masks) and Crafts4eterntity music.

I think 'you rock' in your abilities to do all that cropping and other stuff. I envy the abilities that others have with all these programmes. My own knowledge is pretty basic. A super striking card and thank you for sharing it with us at Cd Sunday.

This card rocks, Marina! I love making masculine cards, but for teenagers and young men it can be quite tricky, don't want it to be too sweet, and this is just the type of design that suits this age group.
