Rock n Roll!

This card is a perfect example of how we cardmakers love to CASE (copy and steal everything!) from one another. Once upon a time, i made a card. Claire liked the layout, so she used the basic layout to come up with a new card and used it for a make-and-take at a PhillyInkers meeting. I loved her changes, so i have now stolen it back, made a minor adjustment, and made yet another card!

Here is the final result, using the technique called Rock and Roll (to get the two-color look in the larger images). I love how the card ends up looking like it was tie-dyed. This technique was not on my original card. The strip of paper going diagonally was my basic layout. The stamp choice, colors, and technique is Claire's. When i changed it again, i only changed the width of the strip and the amount of stamping.

Stamp set: Baroque Motifs
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Purely Pomegranate (In Color 07-08) textured
Ink: Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate (both In Color 07-08)
Tools: Paper trimmer
Adhesive: Tape runner
