U Rock!

Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla

U Rock! Every Day! grins! just in case someone hasn't told you that today, I thought I would let you know. and I am sending this card off to Mick to let him know I think he rocks as well.

This image from Tiddly Inks always cracks me up. David thought it was a muffin. Even though I did everything I could to make this card look 'rockish' to go with Mick's love for rock climbing, David looked at me and asked, "You muffin?" I just rolled my eyes and took the card over to Ryan. he got it. phew.... I haven't completely lost it.... yet.

The rock bg paper was fun to make. Christy had offered up a freebie on the Tiddly Inks PCP group last week of some crinkly paper. I printed it out in b & W, sponged it with shades of browns & greys, sprayed it with graphite & walnut gold glimmer mist, wrinkled it up really good and tight while it was still wet, hit it quick with a heat gun, then sponged it with crystal effects. after this was dry, I sponged white craft ink over the top. voila! a rock face! perfect for my rock climber! Ryan knew it was rock paper immediately. I still am holding out hope for my hubster...... it has great texture and shine irl.

The papers are Basic Grey Boxer. I had forgotten how fab this collection is. The little ROCK in the boy's hand is also sponged with crystal effects. the zipper pull is actually repurposed from the pocket on a pair of Mick's shorts. he will get a kick out of seeing it here.
