I stepped out of my element a bit today and had fun with it!  This image, Drummer Dude, by Make it Crafty, is not my typical cutsie image.  But I love some of the Make it Crafty images and this one happened to be perfect for my college student's birthday.  She is a big fan of a local band, Tricky Dick & the Cover Ups.  They are a cover band that plays locally.  I found their logo and added it to the drum, but blurred it out incase for this post incase there are any copy right issues.  He is colored with copics.  I used my air brush to add a spot light around him and that purple haze that you typically see at a concert.  

There is a tag sticking out of the top of the card, adorned with ribbons.  You will see the perfect sentiment below =).

Copics used:
Skin:  E50, E51, E21, E25
Hair:  E50, E53, E57, E59
Shirt/Band:  YR15, YR21, YR27, YR68
Jeans:  B91, B95, B99
Symbols:  YR21, YR24, YR27
Stands/Drums:  BV20, BV23, BV25
Haze:  Y11, BV17, RV95

Since many of us will be signing this card to wish her a Happy Birthday, I made it a tri-fold card and left lots of white space.    Did you catch the zebra print tie?  That tie is on many of the bands shirts along with their logo.  So I added it as a personal touch.  She will understand.

Here is the tag that peaks out of the top.  I have always loved the sentiment and it fits perfect with the Drummer Dude.

Supplies used:
Make it Crafty - Drummer Dude
Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Black Soot, Clear Embossing, Various other browns, not sure what I used, sorry)
Washi tape
Inkadinkadoo - Sentiment
Printworks - Sentiment

So here is the remainder of the hop!  Rock on!
