CASology Challenge #250


Hi there blog friends,
I'm playing along with one of my favorite challenges again ~ CASology Challenge #250 and this week the cue card is ‘Loud’!


For me it was a no-brainer...my PTI electric guitar is the loudest stamp in my stash :)
I started by creating a mask and inking the circle with Shaded Lilac DI and die cut the panel with MFT's Wonky Rectangle die. I stamped all of the images with Versafine, then sprinkled clear EP on the musical notes and sentiment for shine.

*** Initially, I had a hard time getting a crisp image on the guitar...Here are a few tips:
I cleaned the stamp with Hero Arts Ultra Clean, dried it and rubbed it down with my white eraser. Then, I used a fine sanding block, brushed it off with a stamp scrubber and cleaned it with my Shammy...Voila! A clean, crisp image!

I'll be back tomorrow with my ATCAS DT card...hope to see you then. Wishing you all a great weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,

Love this card. Yes, you really nailed the 'loud'. I feel like I can hear the music already. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

With an electric guitar playing son I really don't know why I don't own this set! Perfect card for our CASology challenge this week - thanks for playing along, Barb!

Jacquie's comment was exactly what i was about to write! My youngest son has been playing the guitar for years and got a nice electric guitar for his birthday last October (he already had an amp)...I have listened to his loud music every day since then! Luckily he's pretty good so I dont mind listening to him play, but it is LOUD! (Did I mention my other son plays the drums? Another LOUD instrument!) Ah, your card captures CAS and the cue perfectly! Great color and design. Thanks for joining us at CASology!

Such a fun card! The electric guitar is perfect for the cue word and framing it in the sponged circle is a fabulous way to showcase it.

This is so fun, Barb!! Great interpretation of the cue word. xx

Cool and funky, Barb ... love how you blended the background to make the area around the guitar lighter ... such great detailing! Hugs, Anita :)

Love the contrast of soft color and loudness of the rock/ guitar theme Barb!
Thank you so much for joining us at Casology this week!

Prefect embodiment of the theme Barb, and thanks for sharing the stamp spiffing up routine.
