{iSSC09/YNS} ROCK ON!

Hey there! Today I am combining this weeks newest iSpy Sketch Challenge with Your Next Stamp's FUN FRIDAY! Head on over to the iSSC blog to have a look-see at the sketch and the original card that inspired the sketch!

I used a cute little rocker boy image from the YNS set Rock Star Fhinn for my card. As you all know, I love little boy images and YNS does not disappoint with their selection of masculine stamps!


Okay friends. Here is my Fun Friday tip for you today- Two-toned hair. I wanted Fhinn to have blue hair highlights ar the tips, so I used B93 and B95 and started with the lightest blue, working with a 'flicking' motion from the tips towards the base. I then did the same with the darker blue, and back over with the lighter. I then worked from the base of the hair towards the tips, using my cool grey copics. I wanted a white highlight where the light hits his hair, so I did leave some white space in between the blue and the grey. I then colored some dark grey onto my stamp block, and picked up some of the colour with my lightest blue marker brush tip, adding a bit of dark grey to those ends. Easy! A cool 'rocker-chic' look! Subtle, though effective, I think;)

The pants and guitar were paper-pieced and I added some blingage with Taylor's Tiny Twinkles. Spica pens and glaze were applied to the guitar and shoes, as well as some streaks of silver spica in the hair. I used an MFT speech bubble die for the sentiment and since I stamped it on WAY too high, I just added a row of rhinestones underneath to make my mistake look purposeful;) hehe! Some crazy zig-zag stitching adds a rough touch to this rock and roll card! I used some black netted ribbon (cut in half) and orange bakers twine from the Ribbon Carousel and changed the orientation of the sketches ribbon treatment to suit my card better:) This week's challenge at the Ribbon Carousel is ANYTHING GOES (RCC46)...
