Make It Monday - Rock and Roll Technique

This week's Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink is to use the Rock and Roll Technique.  I haven't used this technique in a while, so it was nice to revisit it!  I decided to use the Alpha Blocks set for the technique.  I started by diecutting the blocks for the letters with the Alpha-Blocks Die.  Then I inked each letter in Hawaiian Shores ink and rolled in Ocean Tides, then stamped it.  I love the look it gave each letter. 

For the background of the Kraft cardstock, I masked stripes and rubbed Fresh Snow and Hawaiian Shores ink to create stripes, then added some score lines and stitching.  A palm tree stamped in the background would have been really neat, but I didn't have one.  The letters just put me in the mind of the beach.  The Happy Birthday is from the Handwritten Notes set.  This will be a nice card for my nephew whose birthday is coming up in July.
