That's A Real Quirky Attitude!

Hi guys, it's that Quirky time again... time for me to climb down from the attic and very quickly make a card, for the new challenge, which has already started (hours ago!!) over on the Quirky Craft's Challenge blog. This time round it's Cazzy's turn to choose the'll never guess, so I'll tell you! It's...
Pop over and see what the other GDT and DT have come up with! This challenge we have, not one but two sponsors, which means lovely prizes from Crafty Ribbon and The Stamping Boutique who provided the DT and GDT with some fabulous digital stamps to use!
For my creation, I've used mostly red and black card and Max the Rock 'n' Roll boy printed out about three or four times. I've layered him up a little bit, but not with 3D foam pads or silicone glue, he's just 'flat' (poor boy) so he still pops out a little from the card.
At first I'd coloured his spot light red and then, changed my mind. I wanted to made it yellow but didn't want to print out another image and colour it in again. So, by just cutting out the yellow spotlight (and a bit of his feet) I covered the red... as seen in the picture and that saved having to colour in the whole image again. I've also gone over the yellow Promarker colouring with a yellow glitter gel pen to make it sparkle a little bit. I've used gold, green, red and blue glitter gel pen on his hair and added different colours to his shoes, jeans and guitar too.
So, (stop for tea here) After I cut out the first image, and mounted it onto black card, I added the newly coloured spotlight over the red spot light (as seen in picture) then added another whole image of Max, with out the spotlight (still with me?) I then just added Max's guitar and T shirt. I find it's quite a good way to colour something in, if you're not sure what colours to use, as you can then just pick out your favourites. The guitar in the end turned out to be a little redder than the first one and his hair less blue but more 'glittery'.
The Star paper was a freebie ages and ages ago, I've saved it as FDS, which usually means it may have come from I can't find it over there any longer, but it's still worth a visit as there's loads of freebie papers, and alphabets. The paper I've used on the inside of the card is part of the Ben 10 pack from Craft's Beautiful Magazine Forum. (again ages ago) You will have to 'login' and then paste and copy this addy into the url otherwise you might not find it!
I've also added star and screw shaped brads (with an added curly bit of wire) and black eyelash wool.
The font on the front of the card is also a freebie, it's called Rock Electric (or just Rock) and you can download it HERE (there's a few other 'Rock' fonts on the same page) and the font inside the card is called Dark Half BTN you can download that HERE
So the card reads... Rock 'n' Roll, one two, one two, one two three four..."Happy Birthday to you.. "etc. Right that's me done....oh well, back into the attic I suppose! See you later! Thanks for stopping by!
