Crocodile Rock

Hi again, today! Couldn't help myself... had a burst of inspiration after a 3-hour session of solid gardening, and just had to do this card for the Lollipop Ladies:  where the challenge inspiration is lolly crocodiles with the addition of washi tape. What fun! Crocodile Rock immediately came to mind, and this is  what my card is based on.

The image is a Clip art one, downloaded in colour, but I've gone over it using Lyra pens, to intensify the colour. I use Publisher a lot when doing Word Art, so this is how I was able too make the circles around the image. The Lyras were also used to colour the background beneath the words. For some of the 'Rock and Roll' glitter I've painted the background around the croc with 3D stamping paint.  The words 'You Rock' were written with a permanent fine point. The washi tape has been used around the outside of the circle, and has been randomly pleated.
I had a lot of fun doing this. It was relatively quick, once I had found the suitable image.
Thank you for visiting.
Cheers, Di
