Musically Inclined with Stampendous and Dreamweaver

Acoustically speaking, the Stampendous team are really enjoying their musical creations this week. My feature card was a cooperative creation. I handed the Acoustic Sounds image and my Copic Sketch markers to my son, Bryan for him to stamp and color that particular panel. He really enjoyed mimicking the wood grain, attempting to match the color variations to his own acoustic guitar. I added some Memento Toffee ink around the edges of the panel, and sprinkled a bit of Stampendous Spoonful of Rust encrusting mix around the edges before heating to melt.

The kraft card base was ink distressed. A panel of Core'dinations Chalk Core was machine embossed with the Dreamweaver Waves and Dots stencil, sanded, and brushed with the Toffee ink for a cohesive and grungy look. A scrap of guitar music was distressed and added, along with a handcut guitar "pick" tucked into an actual wrap of guitar string wire. The sentiments added were from the Perfectly Clear Happy Greetings set. A perfect masculine card for your guitar "hero".

Remember, the rest of the team are musically inclined this week as well! Just follow them from the links on the Stampendous blog.

This is such a cool card and the coloring is wonderful. I like how the guitar is the focal point yet it balances beautifully into the card design. Love that Brian added his coloring to the guitar!
Beautifully composed card that shows the joy of music.

This card is wonderful! Bryan did an awesome job of coloring the guitar! It looks so cool with the wood grain he made.
Your son did an amazing job coloring the guitar!! I love that you involved him and that he is interested in your passion! I try to involve my grandchildren whenever possible and am planning on having each of them do a canvas then I am going to make a wall hanging to display them! TFS!
