This is my second card for Catch the Bug Challenge Blog's "Stella Says Sketch #310" challenge.
I chose Bugaboo Stamp's "Circle Sentiment--You Rock" for my image. I sized it in Photoshop, and printed it on a piece of 90 lb. watercolor paper I'd cut & embossed with a Spellbinders "Standard Circles LG" die. I die cut a scallop circle using a Lifestyle Crafts "Nesting Scallops" die (I believe this set is discontinued). I colored the guitar & stars with Inktense pencils, blending the colors with a damp brush. Then I glued the focal panel to the scalloped mat piece.
For the background, I cut a piece of patterned paper from Kaisercraft's "Technologic" 6.5x6.5" pad to 3x5.25". I also cut a piece of cardstock to 1x5.25", and adhered both to a navy panel cut to A2 size. Finally, I glued my focal panel in place.
I added 3 "pearls" with Onyx Pearl Liquid Pearls to the 1" cardstock strip, put a coat of Glossy Accents on the stars & parts of the guitar, mounted the card front to an A2 card base, and I was done! This card will also be going in my final shipment to Operation Write Home.
I'm also entering this card in Catch the Bug's "Anything Goes" challenge.
