You Rock

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I made for my Dad for his birthday. Since my Dad is a drummer, I thought the drummer image from the Avery Elle Stoked set would be perfect for him!

I started off with a panel of white cardstock, cut using a SSS Stitched Square die. I then blended TH Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass in to the centre. I then used the TH Distress Spritzer with a Tumbled Glass Distress Marker and spritzed some of this on to the panel too.
The image was stamped on to white cardstock, cut out using the matching die and coloured using Copic Markers. The sentiment was stamped in the middle drum. The background panel was adhered to a white 4.75"x4.75" card base with foam sheet. I then added the drummer on top with foam tape. To finish off, I applied a generous coat of Glossy Accents over the centre drum.
