An Old Rocker


It's my brother-in-law's birthday tomorrow and this is the card I've made for him.  Andy loves rock music and as a young lad was involved in a group and in recent years he and and a few friends have got together to form a group again.  Andy plays guitar, sings and writes his own pieces.  Although he has a few favourite rock bands his number one must be ACDC and only last month he travelled with friends to see them perform in Inverness.


The main image is called Rock Dude from KennyKdownloads and is coloured using Promarkers.  As soon as I saw this image I immediately thought of Andy and had to get it for his birthday card.  He doesn't quite have the long hair but I have seen pictures of him wearing a long blonde wig when dressed to go to a sixties themed party.  Because this image is so bold I didn't feel the card needed many embellishments so just Quickutz die cut corners and tabs along with some brads were added.  The backing papers were taken from the DCWV The Rockstar Stack and the sentiment is from the Stampin' up Sincere Salutations stamp set and stamped using their Chocolate Chip ink.  The sentiment was cut and layered using oval nestabilities dies

On the reverse of the fold back I've attached the lyrics from a Byrds song.

  
Here's a picture of the old rocker himself. 


Happy Birthday Andy.  Hope you have a good day and keep rocking.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges

  22. I saw your card Liz and Mick Jagger came instantly to mind, I think it's the larger than life face, just like the rock man himself.

    Great card and looking forward to see what you do with those Aquamarkers. I find the benefit over distress inks is the colour stays much stronger after spritzing with water.
