Rock On, Dude!

Rock On, Dude!

I had no idea if I was ever going to use this Chit Chat rub-on, but when I saw the colors in Kristina Werner’s latest color inspiration challenge (#53), I thought these would make a great “dude” card. The sketch is Fall-To Layout #43 on Natasha’s clean & simple stamping blog.

The white background panel was run through the Big Shot with a texturz plate. The star image from the Fun & Fast Notes set was stamped with black StazOn ink on various pieces of colored card stock, and then stamped and paper pieced together on a Whisper White circle. I stapled three different ribbons onto the white panel, and rubbed the sentiment on top of the Real Red grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
