Rock Star Anya - Rockin the holiday

Hi folks,

Well, I decided to play along with another of the extra images I had stamped up for the image exchange - this time I went with RockStar Anya to give you all a break from my Hallowe'en-y cards. But you don't get a break from the orange! (technically it's CTMH Goldrush to match the You Rock papers)

I coloured RockStar Anya with Copics (YR00, YR02, YR04, YR14, E15, Y17, E000, E00, E02, R20, R83, BV11, BV13, V15, YG11, YG63, G21). And I added a little glimmer to her hair and guitar with some colour matched sparkly gel pens. Her headband got the once over with a clear sparkle pen.

I embossed the star panel using a Cuttlebug folder and then added a distress look by sanding the paper to expose the white core of the card stock.

Challenges for this card:
  • Club Anya - Mystery Monday: Case of Peggy Meyer. I tried to stick as close to the inspiration photo but I had to drop the extra embellies. I originally had some cuttlebug die cut stars on the card but I felt they just made it too busy with all the patterned papers and embossing already going on.
  • Practical Scrappers - white/color core cardstock. I sanded my embossed CTMH Goldrush so you could see the inner white core.
  • Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - distress it. As I said before, I distressed the embossed panel by sanding it.
Hope you are having a lovely day - my plans to go for a little motorcycle ride this afternoon got squashed by the rain I am in the craft room!

This is so cute. Thanks for playing along with us at Practical Scrappers.

Also, I wondered if you have heard about Papercraft Star yet? You really need to consider entering some of your projects for the challenges over there if you haven't already!
