Q is for Quartet


Not exactly a typical quartet, that's for sure! This is for my brother for his birthday next week. He's an artist and a bass guitarist in a local rock band so he should get a kick out of it. I was planning to use just the Rock Star stamp by himself, then I thought - "he needs a band!" There are two A Muse summer release sneak peeks in disguise here for you. The vocalist is really Makenna, the lollipop girl. I extended the line on her lollipop to make a microphone stand. Her dress was inspired by Annette Strean of Venus Hum in her "I Feel Love" performance with Blue Man Group. I pieced her dress by stamping her on a separate sheet, coloring the stripes, cutting out just the dress, and adhering it over the image on the card - so that if I messed up the stripes I could redo it without ruining the whole thing! The drummer is part of the new Gymnasts stamp. I gave him some drum sticks and drew a little drum set around him - just penciled it in, went over it with a Pigma Micron pen and then erased the pencil.
Big news is coming soon - stay tuned!

Absolutely jaw dropping how you can see an image and use it a different way! I love the rock star with his "singer" - so great!
