You Rock Sketch Saturday!

Hello! Do you have big plans for the weekend? I don't!! And those are my favorite kind of weekends!! I hope to get to play a lot with my stamps and new papers (I had several online stamping supply orders arrive yesterday and I am a happy puppy!!) But for today I have a card made with Pam's sketch for Sketch Saturday at Club Anya and Friends!! I am experimenting with making bigger cards and my first couple of attempts looked a little bare but I am thrilled with the extra size on this one. I don't think I could have put all of these guys together on a smaller card (this one is 5x7 when I usually work 5x5 or 4.25x5.5).

I decided to make my own little CA&F rock band using the new Drummer digi, Eric (with a microphone drawn to go in his hand) and Ebony (she has Rockstar Anya's hands and guitar). I used some new Artisan Tape from Pink Paisley instead of a flourish in the upper corner. The black layer behind the circle was made by cutting out a scalloped circle with my Nesties, then repositioning it in the die so it would cut off a portion of each scallop when I ran it through again.

The Details:
Stamps: Drummer Digi, Eric, and Ebony - The Greeting Farm, Sentiment You Rock (Verve)
Paper: Lilly Bee, Basic Black, Whisper White (SU), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Black (SU)
Skin: R00,E00,E00,R20
Hair: C5,C7,C9,YG21,YG23,YG25
Clothes: B21,B23,B26,C3,C5
Hair: E50,E53,E55
Clothes: C5,C7,C9,B21,B23,B26
Hair: R24,R27,R29,R39,R89,RV02,RV04,RV06,RV09
Guitar: B21,B23,B26,B28
Misc: Pink Paislee Artisan Tape, Brads (Bazzill), Stardust Stickles, Crystal Effects, Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Corner Rounder (SU)

I hope you will join us and try your hand at the sketch at CA&F!
Have a great weekend!

LOVING this rock band girl. You are always so inspirational for me Traci. You have such a great eye for creativeness. Club Anya is so very blessed to have you back on the team. One of the best things they have ever done. You totally rock, just like your card. Hugs!!!

Hey Traci,
I can't believe I missed this post.
What a fabulous card! I really like the drummer. Tommy Lee was always my favorite rocker and future ex-husband.
The very first thing I ever saw that you made was your Ramones card for the rocker challenge last year. I've been a fan of yours ever since and love the rocker influences and your beautiful coloring.
