Rock on!

Hello lovely people,

I'm back!  It's not often I post 2 cards in one day so if you are looking for my In The Pink card then please scroll down.

I now have my DT card for the All Dressed Up Challenge to share with you and it's about as far from pink as you can get!

I'm not one for New Years Resolutions but I did have a few things in mind that I would like to try more of in 2014 and one of those was male cards.  Regular visitors will know my blog is full of pretty girly cards so I thought I should try to get out of my comfort zone every now and then!

And when I saw the fab new images from All Dressed Up I knew it was a good time to go for it!  We have four fantastic images in this latest release, covering both girls and boys!

How fab are these?  To purchase any of the images please head over to the Shop.

For my design team creation I have used Rock my World and here he is;

I really enjoyed colouring this and the one major difference to all the girly images I usually colour was a lack of hair!

Card recipe;
DP: The Rockstar stack - DCWV
Dies: Precious stars (with the bows cut off!) - Memory Box

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/21/11
Green bits: YG93/95/97/23
Blue bits: BG93/95/97/99
White bits of top: B0000/000
Guitar: E57/47/49 & E40/41/42/42
Grey bits: W series

Don't forget our current challenge theme is 'Love is in the Air' and these images would be perfect for this, plus you are in with a chance of winning 3 images of your choice!
You can find the challenge on the All Dressed Up blog and also check out the fabulous creations from my fellow Dressy Girls.
We would love it if you stopped by our Facebook Group to share your All Dressed Up creations and chat to fellow crafters.

I know this was already quite a long post but I just have to tell you that I am going on holiday on Sunday so may not be around too much for the next week.  I am skiing in Andorra with friends and I can't wait :-D

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Kat xx
