At the Movies

I haven't managed to create anything for the Stampotique challenge for a while, but this week the challenge SDC222 is 'At the Movies', and Corrie is the hostess, so I thought I would join in the fun :)

Here is my make, featuring the delectable and very versatile Oliver

Can you guess the movie ? 

Oliver was colored with copics and Faber Castell India Ink fine black pen to add the hair and glasses detail. I added a layer of dull embossing powder. It makes the image appear just a little bit sharper.

The background was made using black cardstock, then I used molding paste and a Crafters Workshop stencil called Mini Cubist. When the paste was dry I colored the boxes with inktense pencils in green, orange, blue and red. I used inktense because they dry permanent and I wanted to go over and add some low lights with india ink.

The words were typed on my typewriter, painted with the same colors of inktense pencil as the background and glued on top. Oliver, erm I mean Neo, was popped up on the card and a thin washi ground added for him to stand on.

Here's a close up. Have you worked out the movie and who this is yet ?

This is Neo from the Matrix. One of my all time favorite movies. And I must admit .. my all time fave squeeze ... I just looooove Keanu Reeves.

As soon as I saw the challenge theme I knew I wanted to do this, I just had to get creative with what I had in my stash. I think it worked out pretty good :)

Thanks for stopping by x
