Hi there! We are back with more awesome inspiration today! Nicole [AKA Stempelfrida] has us rocking into the weekend with a brilliant card featuring our ROCK OUT guitar stamps with our SON DEFINITION sentiment stamp…
In the recent release by Visible Image there is a “Son Definition” which is so beautiful. Today I have combined this with one of the music stamps to pay tribute to the live rock concerts and wonderful musicians, which are so much missed in these times.
The musician I stamped with Versamark and embossed him with a fine black powder.
Then I masked off the top and bottom of the card. At the bottom, the border runs through the leg, creating more dimension and making the guitarist actually appear to be standing or even jumping forward.
In the upper part I applied Distress Ink in ‘spiced marmalade’, and in the lower part I used ‘salvaged patina’ using a thick brush. Often you don’t want to see any stripes and approach this very slowly with colouring little by little. Here on the other hand, I wanted to simulate an incidence of light, the spotlight on the stage, and deliberately applied the color more streaky on top.
On this background I stamped the stars and ink splats stamps with Distress Oxides in the same colors. I also applied water drops so that lighter spots were created.
Then I came to a tricky part that you might not notice at first glance. I wanted the text to appear white in the guitarist area. I used a stamp positioner for this and first embossed the text in the center with white, then covered that area with a mask and embossed over it in black.
Unfortunately, the black embossing powder sinks into the card a bit, so I traced the area in the leg with black and white pens.
