Rock On!

I decided I had to make another card for the ways to use it challenge, I liked the other one I made but as I said in my earlier post, I had another idea in my head when I first saw the challenge and I wanted to get that done too. I am still going with that music theme, I know the challenge isn't about music but I have the stamps so I figured it was still a reason to use them and I hadn't used my Rockabella yet. The shadow I used here isn't a stamp - I made my own shadow stamp using a sizzix bookplate die and fun foam - it works well. It may be hard to see in the photo, the brads on the image are actually tiny screw brads. I used silver card and my swirl cuttlebug embossing folder to create a metallic look. I based this card on a card sketch I saw recently on Poetic Artistry's blog which you can find here.

Recipe:
Stamps: Rockabella - Stamping Bella; On the Spot - Stampin' Up; Rock On- Karen Foster Snap Stamps
Paper: White, Black, Burgundy; Silver
Other: D'vine Swirl Cuttlebug embossing folder; Slider Cuttlebug die; circle punch; black grosgrain ribbon; tiny screw brads - Karen Foster; black ink; tria markers
