Rock Star

What nightmare this was to photograph! :) lol.  It was like pulling teeth!..... mirri board - tut!

Anyway, I hope everyone has had a great start to the weekend :) I made this card today following the sketch over at Simon Says Stamp and the theme of Black, White and Silver at Paper Playtime using the gorgeous Kenny K digi-stamp 'Star'.

Now I hope that the divine Richard Armitage isnt reading this blog, or it will spoil the valentines card surprise! :D  LOL......kidding! Its for my gorgeous husband David (h'obviously), but it wont be a surprise to him either, as his nose was poking in all over the place while I was making this.  Guess I have to send it to him now then! ;)

I used black embossed DP, and printed my own sentiment.  I used a quickie glue pen on the letters and went to town with the black glitter.   I have attached 3 dangle charms to give it some movement, and used my MS punch for the borders.  This card is 8x8 inches.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Kenny K Krafty Girlz - Love You.  My little stars have 'love' written on them.
Simon Says Stamp - Great Sketch
Paper Playtime - Black, White, Silver
Cute Card Thursday - Monochrome

Lexis Creations - Say it With Love
Saturday Challenge - With Love
Cupcake Craft - Something New - New Kenny K image

Thanks so much for looking and good luck to all entering these challenges.

I knew you'd been at the Mirri as your blog was loading & suspected for whom it was - beastly isn't it? .... the Mirri. I'm not buying any more! This is brilliant - astonishing shading on the image. I'd not have thought of funky hearts with the traditional shaped ones - but very effective. Shall have to give that a go.

Mirri is so effective on cards but it really is a devil to photograph. I usually ask my son when I use mirri as he has a 'posh' camera and knows what settings to use lol. I love this card, the image is fab. Good luck in all the challenges. Debs xx
