Rock On Baby!

I've been singing U2 songs all day because we were at the U2 concert last night. Woo Hoo!!! What a fabulous show!!!
I thought it only fitting to use my Rockabella image from Stamping Bella on my card today. She looks soooooo cool...I could totally see her on stage with Bono!!! LOL!!!

I used a Sketch Challenge from the Stamping Bella Forum on Splitcoast, BSC81. It's a great place to look for inspiration if you need a little mojo boost. I stamped Rockabella with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured her with copics. I gave her rock star shimmer by using my pink Spica glitter pen on her shirt. The image is cut out with rectangle Nestabilities and layered onto a scallop rectangle of razzleberry.

My new Basic Grey Indian Summer paper pack was the inspiration for my colour choices and the patterned strip is from that pack. I ran some melon mambo through my D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder before stitching around the edges. I took some liberty with the circle element and instead of using more paper I added a ring of burnt honey Bella Bonbons. I think it's the perfect touch of bling for this rock star!

Don't forget to play along with this week's Bellarific Friday challenge. Click here to find the sketch on Bloggabella.
