ICS Blog Hop, Epic Celebrations

It's the first Wednesday of the month, that means it's time for the ICS blog hop.
Today we're sharing a color challenge. I paired the color challenge with the SAB freebie, 
Epic Celebrations.


Here is my project:


I stamped the guitar from the Epic Celebrations stamp set, gave it a bit of color with my Night of Navy Stampin' Blends marker and then cut it out with my snips.
But the exciting part, I think, is the background. I saw a card or two with this type of background, so I wanted to give it a try. I punched a bunch of the shapes out with the new Tailored Tag Punch, using the colors from the challenge.


Then I played around till I found a pattern that I liked. Next, I attached them to a piece of card stock. I used snail, but I think next time I'll use the Tombo Liquid adhesive, so I can move them around a bit.


Then I trimmed it down. I put some of the wax paper strips from the mini glue dots to protect my trimmer.


Then I mounted it to a piece of Whisper White and then on a Crumb Cake card base. I added a few fun shapes, a sentiment, and the guitar.
