Rock Star! By Fran


I made this card with my oldest grandson in mind.  He will be 17 in April! Where does the time go?  I used a digital image by Simply B Stamps.  What a challenge for me when it came to coloring the image.  But I do have to say it came out nicely. Below is a photo of the card and you can tell me what you think.


Details:  Cardstock by Neenah – Embellishments by Fran using a You Rock Digital Papers and Elements by Ziggle Designs – The hands are a font called Zoeilyhands – Star is a Die Cut called Stacking Stars – Glossy Accents Wink of Stella Clear Glitter used on hands and star to create added dimension –Image colored with Copics (C3, C5, C7 Grey on Suit); (C5, C7, C9 on Hair); Guitar (Boo); (E47 dark brown, Eyes); (E000, E00, E11, R20 Skin); Small dots around image created with a Sakura Gel Pen (Blue Glaze).  Last but not least the card is all held together using Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive. And 3-D padded foams for dimension.

Here are the items you can purchase from the Cutters Creek Online Store:

Raven Hair Beauty by Fran


I found a free digital image that I love.  But I had no clue on how I was gone to color it.  After much thought I chose my Copic Markers.  The image is mostly colored black but using dark greys to give it the appearance of looking black.  Black and red are the hardest colors to blend and shade.  But I think it turned out pretty good.  The rest of the colors came from the “E” family of Copic Markers.  I Just used the Warm Greys and Skin tone colors.  I used a Prisma colored pencil, white for the highlights on the hair.

The card dimensions are 5-1/2” by 6”.  The card base is made from Bazzill Simply Smooth, white card stock.  The other papers are from my stash.  The corners and filigree came from the Silhouette store and cut using the Silhouette.  I popped up the image using 3-D Adhesive Foam Pads.  The image’s ears and belt are decorated with Gold Vinyl stickers. And I added the same colored vinyl stickers to the borders of the black card stock.  I used two types of adhesive: ATG Tape Glider and Glossy Accents.  And to finish the card off I used a Wink of Stella Brush marker in Clear Glitter.


If there is anything that I used but isn’t listed in the Cutters Creek Online Store you can always contact Kim Bush here.  Kim is the one who got my Silhouette Portrait for me.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
