TMS#77: Heavy Metal

Good morning! It's Tuesday so that means we have another challenge from Melissa at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog. This week it isn't a sketch though; the challenge is "heavy metal". That's right, we would like you to use metal on your card!

I did a bit of a double play on the "heavy metal" theme...I thought this rock and roll chick would be a great image to use. Bella is colored with pencils and I added a red highlight to her hair. (As I was coloring her, I was reminded of the days when I used to be a hair stylist and wore my hair red...very red! That was a long time ago....) I used a metal star brad to carry out the "rock star" theme. I used my favorite "go-to" layout for Bella stamps as well.

Image/Sentiment: Stamping Bella
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Smokey Shadow, SU! Tangerine Tango, Basic Grey "Ambrosia" DP
Embellies: Tangerine Crinkle Ribbon, Smoke Grosgrain Ribbon, Creative Imaginations Star Brad
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, EK Success 3D Dots

I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT has come up with for this theme; you can check them out at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week is a judged challenge, so I hope you will play along so we can see your creations too!

Thanks for stopping by today!
