Today's cards are being entered into the following challenges:

A Bit More Time To Craft Challenge #113 - Anything Goes

I have been playing around with quite a few challenges on Instagram. One, is the #30daysofmixedmediawithana, the day 1 challenge is to use Brushos. Another is #Kindred30DayChallenge, day 1 is to use something sparkly. The characters top is sparkly as I used my CTMH Black Shimmer Brush. Also, I added a few sequins, just to make sure the card had a good amount of sparkle.

Have you ever seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show? If not, and you have a quirky sense of humor you would love it. For those of you who have seen it. You know that RHPS has weekend showings around the world. This is of course, back when movie theaters were still open. And in those theaters, there are people performing the movie while it is playing. Back in my early 20's I was a part of our local cast. And I generally played  Janet Weiss, the movies female lead.

For today's card, I stamped out Dr. Frank-N-Furter, onto a scrap of white cardstock. As for the background it is watercolor paper. I ran the watercolor paper inside an embossing folder. Also in the embossing folder I put some Brusho and sprayed water. Then with this combination inside, I ran the embossing folder through my die cut machine. If you've seen the movie you will recall that at the end Dr. Frank-N-Furter is singing on a stage. And the curtain is down at that time. I think that the embossing folder resembles that curtain.

Now back to Dr. Frank-N-Furter, I colored him in with colored pencils. I then fussy cut him out. And then I blended those colors out using baby oil. Finally, I popped him onto the card with the sentiment, I used 3M foam tape. This was so he would be flush with the sequins that I also put onto the card. To finish the character off, I used my shimmer brush, you shake it up first to make sure the glimmer is evenly spread out.
