Rock Star ATC's

The theme for this ATC (Artist Trading Cards) swap is Rock Star. I dry embossed with a Fiskars embossing plate with music notes on it. I inked it with distress ink minis in theses wild colors that I had patterned paper that matched. After I embossed the watercolor cardstock, I took the Black Soot distress ink over the top of the raised pattern. I've never been successful with this technique, even though I use a light hand, I still manage to get ink where I don't want it. 

The guitar stamp is by Stampabilities, which is sold at Hobby Lobby. I stamped it onto white cardstock with black Hero Arts ink. I fussy cut the image out and then I wan't sure where I was going next with this ATC. So, I played with some glitter and made a huge mess. I made the green glitter green by adding Dreamweaver Stencils Metallic FX to a white-ish glitter. After adding three glitter colors to the guitars, I covered the each with Glossy Accents by Ranger. The die cuts with the #1 in each are by Sizzix. The stamps are by Fiskars and inks by Colorbox and Ranger. The rhinestones are by TPC and the star brad is by Making Memories.

Tons of products today. Thanks for sticking with me on this post.
