Hope Your Birthday Rocks

I made today's card for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #155.  I recently got the You're My Hero stamp set because I thought it would be great for making teen cards, but now I think it would make great cards for "old" rockers too. ;-P

I paired the stamp set with an awesome glitter paper collection to make this card:

I don't usually care for glitter papers but this 6x6 paper collection - Rock Star by Best Creation Design -  is really cool!

While making this card, I had a "goof" that turned into a cool thing.  I stamped the images on the music paper first with a dye ink that I stamped off on scrap paper first so the image would appear as a shadow.  And, assuming that the dye ink dried immediately, I proceeded to stamp the sentiment with a black pigment ink, and poured on clear embossing powder.  When I tapped off the excess embossing powder, I saw that it not only stuck to the sentiment put also to both images.  Ack!  Not what I intended.  Oh well, what could I do now.  I applied heat and waited to see what happened.  It actually turned out pretty cool, the shadow images were lightly embossed and looked great (at least I think so).  Whew!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
