Party on Dude

     I thought the guitar stamp from WMS set Back in the Saddle could transition into a rockin’ acoustic guitar with the help of a few other WMS sets! My original intent was to create a teen guy card…I should have had the foresight that a rainbow background is more teen girl so that is what the card evolved into. Then I thought, ok, camouflage colors should be pretty dude-like and thus, the idea for the second card was born. I guess I had to get the “girl” out of my system before I could start thinkin’ like a “dude”…ummmhmmm! I’ll probably give ‘em to my stepmom to give to my teenage niece and nephew for their birthdays.

Tip: SU! inks can be stamped over immediately (e.g., the stars on the guitar), but I found that with Memento inks, the base ink has to dry fully before stamping on top of it or else the two stamped images bleed together and the second image ends up disappearing.

And always remember to never get to old to keep on rockin’ in the free world! Have a kick-bootie Friday!
