Rock & Roll!

Greetings! It's Kathi here with two cards featuring the Rock Out Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Visible Image and Brusho Crystal Color by Colourcraft, which was used to create the background for both cards.

Brusho Crystal Colors are such fun to use to create a painted background quickly. There are many ways to use them, but I went for my tried and true method. A piece of 9" x 12" piece of watercolor paper was spritzed with water, then sprinkled with Sea Green, Leaf Green, Emerald Green, Yellow, Sunburst Yellow, Turquoise,  Cobalt Blue, and Ultramarine Brusho Crystal Color powders. Water was lightly spritzed and left for a few moments to let the colors spread, then the paper was heat dried. This process was repeated until I was happy with the color combination. I decided it needed a pop of red, so Crimson Brusho Crystal Color was sprinkled sparingly and spritzed with water.

The paper was heat set, cut in half, then run through my Big Shot to flatten it. An oval frame die was used to die-cut the colored paper and black cardstock two times. All edges were sponged with Salty Ocean and Black Soot Distress inks. One set was set aside for my second card.

Here's my first card with the Rock Out Clear Polymer Stamp Set and the Play Guitar Stencil.

The watercolor oval and the black oval frame were taped together on the back and Blueprint Sketch Distress ink was sponged over the Play Guitar stencil, then heat set. The guitar was stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine ink and heat set. The image panel was glued onto a black A2 card.

Here's my second card with the Rock Out Clear Polymer Stamp Set and the Time Tunnel Stencil.

For this card, I separated the oval and the oval frame before stenciling and stamping. Salty Ocean Distress ink was sponged over a music stencil onto the oval frame and over the the Time Tunnel Stencil onto the oval. The guitarist from the Rock Out was stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine ink. A banner die was used to cut leftover scraps and stamped with the Grungy Stars border from the set. The sentiments were stamped overtop with Onyx Black VersaFine ink. The oval frame card front was adhered to a blue A2 card, then the black oval border, guitarist image panel, and sentiments were adhered to finish the card.
