You Rock! at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's new challenge day ay Cardz 4 Guyz and today Joan has chosen the theme "You Rock!" for us. Why not pop over and see what the rest of the Design Team has done, grab some great inspiration for male themed cards and perhaps even join in yourself?

For the background to my card, I printed out a sheet of music paper out of one of the digi packs I won over at A Bit More Time To Craft and then overstamped it with words from a Studio G mini stamp sheet.

The image is a decoupage sheet printed from The Best of La Pashe 2012, and the narrow band of music border across the page is from the same sheet. (Tip - the border wasn't quite long enough, so I cut it and lined up the two sides with the edge of the paper, placing the cut edges so they would be hidden by the image). I added to the "star" feel of it with a snippet of star paper left over from some Christmas card making.

I used deckle edged scissors to cut out the image, and kept the decoupage layers very shallow - with so much going on in the background, I thought thick layers of decoupage might be rather Too Much.

You can see how shallow I've kept the decoupage on this second image.

I'm sharing this with
