Really Rockin' the Farm!


I am so excited about this! I couldn't wait for today when this was announced!
Ok, so we have a ROCKIN' REBEL CONTEST for you over at Club Anya! Be sure to stop by the Blog today to find out more about this wicked cool contest, and the PRIZE! Here are the rules:
1.) Your challenge is to create your FAVORITE ROCKSTAR out of any Anya or Ian stamp (you MUST use an Anya or Ian stamp for this contest). We can't wait to see what you come up with! Feel free to BREAK ALL THE RULES...you know, gender, mix-matching heads and bodies, clothes, hair...you know, that kind of thing! More than likely, the more you mix it up, the better!
2.) This will be a JUDGED contest. The DT, Marie and I are looking forward to seeing ALL your awesome submissions and choosing a winner based on creativity and originality. We already know it's gonna be a TOUGH call!
3.) This contest will remain open until Friday, April 3nd, 2009 at 11:59 CST. All entries need to be uploaded to the Club Anya ROCKIN' REBEL gallery. Be sure to leave a comment on today's Club Anya post too, to let us know you played along! The winner will be announced on Saturday, April 4th on the Club Anya blog.
Good luck to all who enter and we can't WAIT to see what you come up with!

I am so excited because I LOVE to alter Anya and Ian stamps - not because I think they need to be changed because they are perfect! But I think anyone you make looks much cuter when they start as Anya or Ian! And I love rock music! I had so much fun making my two samples (although they took much longer than I usually spend on a single card!)


My first card is David Bowie in the early 70's when he did his Ziggy Stardust character. That has been my favorite music since I was about 12 (even though that music came out when I was around 2!) I used Happy Chef Ian's face and put a post-it note over the part of the hair (and eyebrows, cuz Bowie shaved them off then!) I didn't want. I drew new hair and colored it with Prisma markers. The body is from Dress Me Ian. I cut it out and traced it onto seperate paper where I drew the clothes I wanted. The paper is Summer Soiree by FancyPants (orange) and Offbeat by Basic Grey (white print). The jewels are from the jewelry section at JoAnn's.


This was so much fun I had to do two! My second card is The Ramones! I used the faces from Dress Me Ian on 2 of them (Joey and Tommy!) Happy Chef for one (Johnny) and Skateboard Ian for one (DeeDee!) I had to change their mouth's because they just didn't look like Ramones with Ian's sweet little smile. If I'd been paying more attention to the design instead of giggling at how much fun I was having I probably would have switched DeeDee and Johnny's places so that all 3 of the "blue" jeans were not together! I was just thinking that Joey and Johnny were the center of the group and should be the center of the card! No DP on this one - I drew the wall behind them and gaffitied my sentiment. This was too much fun!

I hope you all have as much fun as I did!

Traci, these are SUPER FABULOUS!!! I love Bowie too, although I have to admit that it is because I saw him in Labyrinth, and I love that movie. Maybe we'll have a Movie Star Challeng one day! I can't wait to make my Rockin' Card, I just have to decide who to make! I love your cards, great job!!!
