I have made this card for my crafty friend's Birthday.
She is a quite hard music lover and this Marylin Manson saying
was just perfect for this occasion. 
I went into a black and white project with a touch of a vibrant red.

I used two of my new stamp sets: SSS Damask Background 
and AALL&Create Musical Gears 59

I stamped a lot of times the background stamp with three shades o
f Distress Oxide Inks and then I heated it to can manage my base 
cause it was really wet.

I stamped the guitar stamp using Distress Oxide Black Soot Ink 
and SSS Clear Embossing Powder - the mix which gives me 
always the best and the most detailed effects. 
Then I only sewed the edges and gave a touch of grey and black. 

Then I stamped the flowers with Distress Oxide Candied Apple Ink 
and used the same SSS Clear Embossing Powder.
Then I fussy-cut them and made a composition behind the main panel.
