Rock & Roll!

Hello my fellow crafters, good to have you with me today, only one more day till our lovely Sheena is back on our screens with her wonderful Rock n Roll stamps, her first show is tomorrow (Friday) at 10 am.

Here is another of my samples...

This cards shows the Guitar and Amplifier from Sheena's Sketchy Stamps Rock n Roll. For the background I painted over Black Card with Aquatints Bright & Beautiful set using the Yellow, Orange and Blue colours working from the center out then covered round the edge with salt and left to dry overnight. This gives the little crackle effects you can see, each time is different you never get the same look twice but make sure the paint is really wet, this is why Aquatints are ideal for this technique. I then mixed some White Gesso and water and dabbed it over the center with an ink pad using first, second & third prints each time to get the different shades.

I then stamped the Amplifier off center with my Versamark Ink Pad and heat embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder Black. On a piece of card I stamped and heat embossed the guitar in the same way, coloured it with Aquablend Pencils then cut it out by hand and placed it against the Amplifier as seen. I stamped the sentiment straight onto the card using Stazon Jet Black Ink. I matted this onto Gold Texture Card.

Using more Black card I made an A4 card by taping two cards together then measured it to fit the topper leaving enough on the edge to fit my Heartfelt Creations Regal Boarder & Pockets die just to add that bit of flourish, however I have since found my musical notes die which would have been more fitting lol!

I hope you like my samples so far, there are more to come lol! 

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
