EXTREME GUITAR/ELEMENTS

This week, Makeesha's offering this contemporary bedding for Inspiration Challenge #10. The clean lines and fun colors were just the inspiration I needed to ink up my new Extreme Guitar and Extreme Elements! Until now, I had found these images to be quite intimidating but am happy with my end result! Even my 14-year old rock star approved!

Be sure to see what the other Inkspiration Design Team members have created ... Cindy, Karen, Kirsty, Amy, and Renee.

Ink: Jet Black Staz-On, Bermuda Bay and Kiwi Kiss
Embellishments: Black Brads, Chit Chat Rub-Ons

Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals, Post-It Note for masking

I have hum and hawed over getting these stamp sets - both of my children play guitar and drums but wondered if I would use it enough. I would like it if SU brought this out in vinyl.

Bermuda Bay goes so well with the pic, pity we don't have it in Australia. Also, really, really, really want the extreme images, esp guitar, skateboard and dirt bike. I have stamp envy (also would love razzleberry lemonade paper, something about that really apealls to me). Enough 'I wants'. Congrats on a great interpretation of the challenge.

Lynn said...
