Rock Star

Yay, Happy March!! I'm only excited cos it means that surely we're distancing ourselves from this freezing cold weather as the days go by (although it certainly didn't seem like it when I was out walking the dog!!) Today, the new monthly challenge at the Cupcake Craftroom kicks off and this time around, to celebrate the release of the 'Little Black Box' papers - which is also up for grabs as the prize - the theme is 'Monochromatic'. Here's my card:
I've used one of the LBB papers, of course and The Stamping Boutique's 'Max', who I've coloured with promarkers and a sakura stardust pen. I've matted the image on some black card and I've also added a star border cut out using a MFT die. Lastly, I've used my Slice to cut out the 'Rock' lettering in black card and silver mirri circles to mount the letters onto and two stars out of black card and mirri. It does look better IRL - in this picture you can't see the shine of the silver card or the sparkle from the stardust pen, but hey-ho!!
I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
 And that's about it. D'you know it's funny, I enter all these challenges and I NEVER win. I think I must be the most unluckiest person ever - either that or my cards are just crap!!??
Back shortly - I've got another card to post. Mwah xx

  16. OMG... I read all thru this til the part when you said your cards are just crap and almost peed myself! You're so funny! That is certainly not the case... did you do something to Mr. Random to make him mad at you? That's the only explanation I can think of, because your cards are DEFINITELY NOT crap!

  17. This is one of my faves, I love the black color pallet! Your cards are not crap either, I normally don't win either and finally just did! It will happen just keep entering, remember most of them are luck of draw by random.org.

    Hugs,
    Christy
