Make it Mondays - Rock'n Roll!

Happy Sunday! Ha, I got crafty this morning! My parents are spending the day with my little girl, my husband is with his friend and me - well, I really wanted to do some cleaning here, but my stamps distracted me too much... So, I thought I'd make a last minute card for this week's Make it Mondays challenge:


Rock'n Roll! Fun fun. I like to use Distress Inks for this technique and I like to mist the stamp before stamping to make the colors blend better. This new Garden Variety stamp set is becoming my new favorite! LOVE everything about it! Here is a close-up:



Oh, and are you wondering about that green heart? I just took a die-cut from the Love Lives Here set to use as a mask:



Off to have some more fun!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Cardstock, Stamps, Die: Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon
Ink: Tsukineko, Ranger Industries
Other: Blue Twine
