Hip Hop Snowmen!

This is my entry for week 4 of MFT's So You Think You Can Stamp contest. I'm still hoping for one of those remaining spots so I can compete in the final week's competition. This week's theme was hip hop. I decided to go less literal with this week's theme and just be inspired by hip hop music, attire, and artists.

For the main portion of my card I decided to use the stained glass technique - to represent all the bling. I embossed my image with gold embossing powder on acetate. Remember all those big gold necklaces and earrings of the 80's? I then filled the reverse of the image with Crystal effects and added 3 different colours of glitter - crystal, aqua, and peridot. I did each colour separately so they wouldn't mix.
This side panels were stamped using the In the Background set. Lots of blue to represent denim. Then I used some gold ribbon and made a gold ribbon rose/medallion and used it as part of my sentiment. I "popped" the image up on dimensionals since popping is part of hip hop. I used the sentiment "Joy" cause I was thinking of that song Joy and Pain by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock - another hip hop song from the 80's.

I decided to make my card into a cd holder as I wanted to send some Christmas music to my niece and nephew. So I made a pocket to "lock"the cd into place. "Locking" is another big part of hip hop.

All in all a super fun challenge! Hope you're having a good beginning to your week!
