You Rock

             Bister's and More.......
I have used Brusho's before but thought I'd give 
Bister's a try to see the difference.
Here is my card
I was inspired by four challenges
Cardz4guyz Challenge-You Rock
Thought I'd do a different angle of the Cue Word/Theme
Update..I am delighted to have been chosen as 
a Top Three for this card from Cardz4guyz-Thank you so much

CASology-You
Simply Less is More-Masculine
That's Crafty-Boys will be Boys

I was enjoying myself so much making this card 
that after I finished, I released it didn't comply 
with two out of the four challenges!
So I re-made it for the two CAS challenges, 
CASololgy and Simply Less is More,
as I still wanted to run with the theme of 
You and a Masculine card and incorporating the Rock
I stamped the main image and heat embossed with black EP.
I then used the Bister powders on top of water, on water colour card.
The sentiment is die cut and layered up over black or white.
I used my dipping pen and white calligraphy ink to hi-light.

The Bisters, in my opinion are pretty much the same 
as Brusho's but more earthy colours and I like them,
although you never get the same twice when you want to re-do your card!

Once I had the idea the card was simple to put together.
I loved how they came out...learning all the time.
