Teens Rock

Hello Everyone!  Today I have a super quick card that I made for my teen son's friend.  I asked my son what colour I should do it in - teen boys can be tricky - and he said PURPLE!  Whaaaat??  A 14yr old boy likes purple!!  He's a nice kid though and a group of his mates got together for a night of gaming - they had a good time and his girlfriend didn't have to put up with all the male game nerding going on!  LOL!!  :)  Since these boys were all geared up for gaming with the laptops and headsets, I thought the headphones from Well Played would be a good choice.  I have to say I use this set A LOT - surprisingly a lot more than I thought I would as it is awesome for teens!

So I tried to make it as basic and not too over the top as possible without being too boring - I also got rid of some scrap pieces off my desk!  So I used a random piece of purple card off my desk and layered with black.  Next I found scraps of blue, dark blue and more purple and attached those.  I stamped the headphones from Power Poppy's Well Played stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (BV11, BV13, BV17, B12, B14, B16) and then fussy cut it out.  I've glued this to the front and then stamped the curly cord direct to the card front.  I've also used the decorative image (not sure what that's called - but they used to be printed symbol in the middle of records back in the day) stamped randomly across the front.  To finish I've stamped the sentiment from Small But Mighty Affirmations direct to the bottom corner. 

It feels weird not to add any embellies - so, so plain - but thought I was being adventurous enough with the purple!!

Stamps - Well Played, Small But Mighty Affirmations (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Wisteria Wonder, Marina Mist, Soft Sky
Accessories - Copics, Scissors

That's all from me today, hope you are Rockin' this Day and also inspired to stamp!  :)

Oh, Kathy! This is fabulous, and your fussy cutting is amazing! I think your headsets are colored to perfect (as always), and I really love the layout. What fun and such a giggle that this teen-ager loves purple. Sounds like a fun night of gaming, and yes, I'm quite familiar with "nerding" out. All my boys (including my DH) are nerds -- well, I'm pretty fair myself...hehe! Hugs, sweet friend!

VERY cool card and I love the coloring on the headphones! Funny thing about that random small image on your background...my 11yo DGD was rummaging through boxes and found my stash of 45 records and the pink & white record player. There were also a bunch of those widgets in the bottom of the record player - they were inserts into the center of a 45 record so that the record could be played on the 'big' console record player. My 4yo DGD strung them on a long piece of yarn to make a necklace lol.

Thanks for sharing your inspiration
