Rock On Honey!!..Motivet DT

This Super Cute stamp is from Motivet's newest release!....this is Morris playing guitar and you can find him right here. Be sure to visit the Motivet Inspiration Blog to see all the Gorgeous cards and projects the DT has been making....and find out how to win some of these Cute and Fabulous stamps!

I have to tell ya'.....My hubby took a big liking to this stamp as soon as he saw it. And he is a fella that usually just grunts when I show him anything to do with stamping. I bought him a guitar for his Birthday a little over a yr ago....and he plays that noisemaker everyday!!...lol... I really don't mind....sometimes he even talks me into singing along. The last time Trina was here.....we had a real blast singing while he played....I mean we literally brought the house down!...LOL...the dogs all hid in the other room....my son went home shortly after we began..(or I should probably say...ran home)...and I'm sure a few neighbors may have closed their windows...but it sure was FUN!!.

On to the card......

I made the base just using a plastic bowl container....I folded the CS...and placed the bowl over it (leaving one rounded edge hanging over the folded edge a tad) and drew around it with a pencil. Then I just cut it out. The finished card is approx. 5.25 inches....and will fit perfectly into my 5.5" square envelopes.

I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

I used a label maker for the words. I drew the stars freehand. The image layer and the stars are popped up on foam squares. There is glitter on the guitar.

Ink - memento black, barely banana, creamy caramel. Paper - GP White, treasures CS, provo craft, making memories, Michael's, dcwv. Accessories - button, gold cord, brads, label maker, glitter, netting, stitching, round nestie

The last time I saw my daughter Trina...we did a little stamping together (we can't sing all the time..lol)....She loved these little Motivet characters....I understand she already has a card made using one of these Cuties...so keep and eye on her blog...Trina's Timeless Treasures.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!....and Thank you so much Everyone for all your Lovely Comments!!

P.S....I have been asked in the comment section where I find my lace. I've found some at Joannes fabric...(in the dollar bin)....Walmart..any fabric stores....garage sales.... I've even taken off of old garments. I have also taken apart gathered lace...and ironed it flat. (if you find just the right string...gathered lace will just unravel)...then I use the netting for bows ect.

Awwww, what a cutie!! Can't wait to ink it up myself, my order should be in my mailbox any day now!! Who could resist this stamp?? Not me, not your hubby, no one!!! Love the papers and the clever shape!! We need not spend a fortune on doodads and gadgets, we are crafters!! Inspiring!! I think I will be dissecting some lace this afternoon to see if I can find the right string!! Thanks for the pointer.
