You Rock!

This card was so fun to do.  I followed the template on this weeks Mojo Monday contest 189.  I  hope to enter this card in the contest.  Either way, I love this card....I just hope the Birthday Boy does too.

I think that my favorite thing about this card is the pop out guitar.

I was also going to use guitar string to anchor the star, but it seemed to sharp and I could not fold it and safely adhere it to the card.  I used Gillian Roberts stamp "I'm a Rock Star"; my computer, printer, vellum, and a star font that I found on line; pop dots; Smooch Spritz- silver on the brown and blue stars; Creative Memories- star and star border punches; Paper : Making Memories- Patterned Argyle, The goods American Craft, and card stock- blue, brown.

I started with copics paper and stamped 2 images using black Memento Ink.  I started with the guitar and colored both stamps at the same time so that each looked the same. I then colored the sleeve and the skin.  Now with that done, I cut out the guitar and the sleeve so that I could use the pop dots and make the guitar stand out. I then went back to my coloring. When I was done coloring, I attached pop dots to the back of the guitar and glued the shoulder to the first image.  The pop dots were a little high so I cut them down and used my glue pen to adhere the dots to the first image.
These are the copics that I used;

                                        Pants- B24, B26
