TCP Tuesday 217-You Rock My World

For this week's TCP Tuesday challenge, Julie's drawn up an eyeglasses template that's perfect for summer fun.  I dressed up the template with a rockstar theme.

I cut the glasses from a piece of black and white dotted patterned paper.  Looking at it now, I think I might have liked the frames better if I'd just stuck with plain black . . .  The lenses are cut from shimmery silver paper to mimic the look of mirrored shades.

Once I had the frames and lenses done, I decorated the frames with images from the Idols set.  I stamped the drum playing pengun two times on white cardstock and colored the images.  I used Versafine's black ink for my penguins--it's my favorite ink to get them to look really black.  After stamping the same image on one of the silver lenses, I attached cut out pieces of the image to the silver paper using foam tape.  The drum is layered twice with tape for extra dimension.  I used a scrap of shimmery gold paper for the cymbal.

The other lens is decorated with the set's "you rock my world" sentiment and a few musical notes.  A glitter covered chipboard star and a single clear crystal at the top of each side of the frame complete the rock star theme I was going for.
