March ~ SOTC

*Click on any posted pictures if you wish to enlarge them*

~This Month's Theme is hosted by sistah April~ (SCS: Aprilo)
She has challenged us to make cards with boys' in mind . Specifically the theme for this month is catered toward teens.
 "All Purpose Cards for TEEN Boys" is the title.
 Cards for all occasions such as birthdays, congratulations, job well done, sports related....whatever we think that boys may like....
(and noooo...April  did not mention that teen boys,at their age, most likely dream about  pretty,geeeegling girls !! LOL)

Well, I thought to make cards with music in mind...
rock and roll specifically...(which teen doesn't like music??!!)
therefore I took the opportunity to ink one of my favorite  silhuette stamp:
*Extreme Guitar* from SU! I also used Inkadinkado *Friendship* sentiment (Be Yourself),
and See D's *50442 Stars* (sentiments 'Shine' and 'You are a rock star' comes from same set)
  I used Archival's Onix Black and Archival's Sienna to stamp directly on designer paper from DCWV "Rockstar Mat Stack Collection" (The guitars page,below w/Elvis book, comes from same fabby collection)

For the background I used real music sheet that I ripped off  from an old Elvis's easy learner music book that used to belong to my daughter when she was very young...(see how much I LOVE recycling?? lol)I thought it served very well for this card.Then I  cut out each lil guitar (what a pain!! lol) and  placed them -using dimentionals- on each of he guitarist's 'hands' for that lil extra touch.I really like how it gives that extra finished touch to the whole ensamble.Now I know I will be hoarding those lil guitars for future creations *wink*  I  also accessorized the card with ribbon bought at a craft store by the meter , music clips and star brads,both sponged with brown staz on. All is mounted on black card stock from SU!
I really like how they all turned out and hopefully YOU, and the recipients , like it as much too.
These teens' cards were sure fun to make :o)

Blessings to all....I love it when U visit! :o)


<----------------Ohh and this last one here on the left,was made with the leftovers....just thought to add it to the mix as well...*wink* CIAO for now....have a great day!! :o)~~Paola~~

Hiya! loved your cute. I'll have to keep your design in mind, because I am forever stumped when I have to put something together for a boy!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for complimenting on my painting. I almost never have time for splitcoast and miss a few of you guys so much at times!

PS Oliver is doing well...he is running around like he wasn't cut open lengthwise across his abdomen! Silly pup.
