Less is More 69...a Shaped Card

 I must admit...when I saw the challenge at Less is More  this week, I found it very intriguing and challenging...but had no idea what to do!!!  When you lack creativity...GOOGLE!!!  I immediately googled shaped cards, and fell in love with THIS card,,,what an amazing guitar Amy made!!!  It was posted 3 YEARS ago...but I think it is timeless!!  I pretty much cased the total idea but changed a couple things...here's my card...
 I made one less string, added a sentiment(Paper Smooches) and used versamark and clear embossing powder and made the red of my guitar really glossy!!  I also used my Papertrey Ink Canvas/Linen Impression plate to give some texture to the white panel.  Here's a picture that shows the guitar's glossiness a bit more!...
I free style drew the guitar like Amy did...let me tell you, if I can draw a guitar, ANYONE can!!!  What fun!!!   Size...standard size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"...cool, right?!! Thanks for visiting me today!!   Hugs!! Lisa
