Rock Star

This is for my brother's birthday coming up this month. He plays bass guitar in a band and you might remember this card I made for him last year. I was looking at various album covers for inspiration when I made this, and decided that using a grunge look was the way to go. So I spritzed black ink (see Kurtis's tutorial) on the natural cardstock and (*shock*) distressed the edges of practically everything. I'm usually very clean and precise in my designs, so it was actually kinda fun to not worry about ink smudges and being messy this time! Oh - and Happy Cinco De Mayo!
Images and notecards by A Muse. Brilliance graphite black ink (heat-set), Adirondack Pitch black re-inker, dry brush, Marvy star button punch, Copic markers (sand, baby skin pink, neutral grey 7, warm grey 2, manganese blue), dimensionals, art glitter and 2-way glue.
