Aloha everyone, I hope you are having good weekend.  Supposed to be 107 degrees here - HOT!

My grandson and grand-daughter both have birthdays coming up real soon.  The boy is a teenager and into computers and rock music as most teenagers are, so that gave me some room for getting my brain moving!  I found a Vector file of an electric guitar and manipulated it my paint program, then imported it into my SCAL program turning it into an SVG file.  I was very happy with the result.  The guitar is very glossy - I did a double coat of clear embossing on black paper.  The background paper is from a stack called "Punk".  I gold embossed the letters on the little square pieces and the inside greeting. The most tedious thing was adding the black thread for the guitar strings.  I wish the picture showed the colors better.

I used three colors of distressed ink on the inside, all by Tim Holtz; Frayed Burlap, Vintage Photo and Antique Linen.
