...moonstruck with music and madness

The card I’m sharing today features a cute image from Kraftin’ Kimmie called Holly Hip Hop.

Now Holly is a rubber stamp and I am not the world’s best stamper so normally I stick to digi but I had to have Holly because as soon as I saw her I thought of my niece.  So I bought the rubber stamp and tried out my new Rock-a-Blocks, which were recommended by a friend, and made up a card for my niece’s eighth birthday next weekend.

I figured if I was going to get out of my comfort zone with a rubber stamp I might as well go all the way out and try the no lines technique and I love how it turned out.  Although I did muddle my light source in the end, more to do with me trying to finish this when I was tired than the no lines technique.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch over at Techno Stamper, I just swapped out the plain circle element for a scalloped one and the snowflake for a flower.  I’ve also turned this into an easel card to make it a bit more special for my niece.

I’ve got quite a few die cuts on this card so I am entering it in the current challenge at Fab‘n’Funky.  Little Red Wagon currently have a washi tape theme for their challenge and that inspired me to actually get out some of my huge store of washi tape, using it for my two rectangular elements.
