Tartan Rock for Daring Cardmakers

On Daring Cardmakers this week, their dare is to use tartan. I found this tartan paper, and for some reason immediately thought of the guitar from the Indie Art cartridge - maybe it was a subconcious Rod Stewart connection, although I am not a huge fan of the wee Scot.
So I covered the front of the card with the tartan paper (HOTP), and found a scrap of music paper for the centre. The guitar was cut at 4 1/2", once in black with the blackout feature, twice in black without blackout, and a layer in red. I threaded it with red cotton, I haven't a clue how many strings a guitar has, and was not about to break off and google it - so this is an artistic interpretation!
The guitar really looks quite dimensional, I popped each layer up with silicone glue, and in my usual fashion rushed to photograph it before the excess glue was dry and I could peel it away... never mind, you get the picture

I'll be back tomorrow with a couple of sneek peeks...........

Hi Enfys, well Rod Stewart look is definitely in for me, but I was thinking it was more Bay City Rollers myself. Your card is lovely and just right for a young person of the 70's my daughter is a Rod Stewart fan. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx
