Think Monday Think ATC - Rock Music


This week's theme on Think Monday Think ATC is rock music. Despite the fact that I am a big rock fan, I have got no stamps, images or anything else in my ATC stash relating to rock music, so I had to improvise with this one!
I created the background using a leopard print stamp, first inking the card in bright colours, then stamping the background in Versamark and clear embossing it. I then painted over it in black acrylic, left it to dry, put a piece of paper over the top and ironed off the embossed image. I really wanted to use a silhouette for my main image but struggled to find one that was just right, so I found an image of a guitar player, coloured over it with a black Sharpie and cut it out. The word "rock" was typed in Word and printed out, then I inked it, cut out the letters and mounted them on black. I added a chipboard star which I inked to match the background and some bright coloured gems.

I think some of the best art comes out when we have to improvise. It certainly holds true for your ATC.
