Rock on!

     Okay, this is an interactive post.  You all have to leave me a comment telling me what you think he's playing/singing.  LOL  That ought to be interesting!
     It's new challenge time at Mo's and our theme is "Dancing/Singing".  This guy obviously has both going on.  I know, I know, another boy card.  I don't know what's up with that , but since I'm on a roll why not stock up the stash before the male mojo leaves me.  :-)
     I used papers from 7 Gypsies to create the card background.  The center black panel was embossed with a TH Sizzix embossing folder and then I added Black Diamond Stickles to the raised squares.  Looks pretty cool IRL.  I fussy cut rock star out and popped him up on that crazy black and white paper.  Drives your eyes nuts doesn't it.  LOL
    So, I hope you'll check out your Mo image stash or hop over to Mo's store to pick up something that will fit our challenge cause you know what?  It's a special challenge.  Why?  Well for the next three challenges we are going to be on the hunt for some Guest Designers.  We're looking for three people to do a guest designer term of three months (August-October).  Could it be you?  If you're interested check out this weeks post at the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog for all the details and then pop "GDT" after your name when you enter your card for the challenge.  Pull out you crafty big guns and dazzle us!
     I'd like to enter this card in to the following challenges:

  3. Fab card, Tracy! Love the colors, papers and layout you paired with the fun image! Terrific coloring, as always!

  4. I'm thinking he's wailing out, "Born to Be Wild."

    Awesome card! I love the papers.

  5. How great this card is! Love it.
    I think he's rocking out to "Tush" by ZZ TOP. :)

  7. Wow Tracy! Great card! Not sure what he's singing, my bet is he's lip sincing to the radio :)

  8. I loved this the second I saw it, Holy Toledo!!! this is just the perfect card for teen.. I think he's playing Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen...


  9. Love everything about this card. The first song that came to my mind was "Born to be Wild" as well.
    Babs xo

  10. LOL! I'm going to agree with the majority and say "Born to Be Wild". Perfect placement and coloring, as always, Tracy! You never fail to amaze me.

  11. What a great card. Love the image. I would say he is singing, " I want to Rock and Roll all night and party everyday"...not sure of the title. Great job as always.

  12. Okay GF..........he's gotta be playing AIR GUITAR! LOL That's the first thing..........& it's gotta be something ROCK n ROLL like vintage Rolling Stones. LOL

    Seriously "rocked" this card (you're definitely on a "roll")! Love that DP you used & yes........that B@W would make me go cross-eyed permanently. LOL Looks like one of those......stare at the dots pics. LOL
    Thanks for the giggles! LOL
    Happy Huggies ~

  13. He's definitely playing air guitar & as for the song I would lay bets it's not something I would have on my Ipod!!! LOL

  14. This is really something, Tracy!! Love it!

  15. Great card. Love the papers you have used. And your coloring is great too.

  16. How fab Tracy ... what a fabulous card hugs Elaine

  17. Hi Tracy,
    He looks like he's playing a little air guitar so I'm guessing rock 'n roll or heavy metal lol. Super image and your Copic skills are superb. This is a wonderful masculine card!

  19. Love your fabulous cute card Tracy.

  20. Just love it Tracy and such perfect paper and detail he really looks fab! Chanelle xxx

  21. this card is a HOOT! I so love it! around my house he would be jamming to Irish indie rock, most likely, something along the lines of Flogging Molly. and this mom plays it loud and proud right along side her sons! grins! or else some Red Jumpsuit App or some other fun..... only dad in this house goes for the classic rock.

    you totally nailed this card! :)

  22. Fabulous card Tracy!
    Hugs, Heidi:)

  23. Oh this guy must be soooooo thrilled about the Stones celebrating their 50th anniversary! So he must be singing something like "Satisfaction". Gosh, I know he should be totally satisfied, being on your beautiful card the way he is!! Hugs, Ira

  24. For some reason, the first song that popped into my head for this rocker was "Nothing But A Good Time" by Poison :) Gorgeous coloring...but what really gets me is that sentiment...awesome combination of fonts, which are a passion of mine. I's disturbing :) Thanks for playing along with The Sisterhood of Crafters' "Let's Hear It For The Boys" Challenge!

  25. I think it's Thin Lizzy with "The Boys are back in town" - the card is brilliant as ever, your colouring is just awesome :)

  26. I think he's gotta be singing Alice Cooper's School's Out, right?
    Totally amazing card, Tracy! All those layers? Get out!

  27. Tracy, I love this guy card, your image is colored beautifully, can you say that about a guy card LOL. Perfect!!!

  28. LOVE this card! That is one happy camper...who just happens to be my nephew a few years from now! lol
    What is he singing?'s an original song that he wrote, of course! It's about his favorite Aunt who seems to be somewhat obsessed with him but he doesn't think it's creepy at all! haha

  29. It has to be "You really got me" by the Kinks...its on the TV right at this moment, I can almost hear yout Rock Star singing
    Amazing card Tracy, loving the papers xx
    Off to see what you have been making behind my back :))
    Hugs Mau xx

  32. This rocker looks absolutely superb and I love how you've coloured him too. Great design with the layering, choice in papers and did I say I love how superb he looks? Thanks for playing at Top Tip Tuesday and good luck. Hope to see you back tuesday for another challenge. Bettina xx
