...You Rock!!!

Hi folks!
Here is a card following a few challenges. I originally followed the sketch for Papertake Weekly, but unfortunately... it took me so long to complete that they're on to the next challenge. I hope it's OK to enter this weeks challenge which is Black, white and 1 colour (in my case pink). Stamp Something has asked for favourite sketches. I'm sure I'll be using this one again as it's great for larger images. Creative Card Crew wants 'Sparkles'. CCEE Stampers wants us to use Digital Images. For the option on Pollycraft Challenge I have chosen Spots and Swirls. Our Creative corner would like to see Black, white and 1 colour. Lastly Paperplay would also like to see spots.
For my card I embossed some textured hot pink card and rubbed over with an old black ink pad. On top of that I rubbed in some silver metallic rub on. I used a strip of DCWV spotty patterned paper which I screwed up and distressed with ink before adhering. The pink lips panel is another DCWV piece, this time from the Rock Star stack. I held this in place using Making Memories Square pink gem brads. I tore a square of vellum and embossed it using the Cuttlebug. The Rock Chix Drummer is a digi stamp available here. She has been printed onto Bristol Board and coloured with Copic markers. I also used Cosmic shimmer watercolours for the cymbals and the chrome parts of the drums. I used black pink and angel dust glitter to highlight certain areas of the image. I used glossy accents on the drums themselves to make them shiny. The sentiment is cut from Funky Foam using the Go Kreate 'Lingfield' alphabet and I have accented it with some confetti stars.
If you're still with me... well done... you can now reward yourself with a nice cup'o'tea :o)
Ciao for now!

Fabulous - love the way you have used the lips paper - I have that and all I seem to do is stroke it!

Wow, this is a totally amazing card!!! Fabulous details. I love the shimmer on the cymbals and I can't believe you cut out that entire digi, but is sure looks like it. Great use for the CB embossing folder. Terrific job on the OCC monochromatic challenge this week. Hope to see you back again next week!
