Your favourite movie for Sweet Stampin'

Hi everybody

Here comes my second post for Sweet Stampin' and Carrie chose the theme of Favourite Movie.  This week we are sponsored by Fairy Dust Crafts, and our monthly sponsor is Pollycraft Digi Stamps.

This was something of a struggle for me - I am not really a movie buff - I don't often go to the cinema - and most often wait until something comes on TV - usually pay per view, or whatever it is called, and I know there are a couple scheduled for the end of this month. 

One thing I did decide that it was not going to be cute this time around, so out came my Tim Holtz stamps, and something from B Line Designs.

My background is a variety of Distress Inks on to Ranger Manilla Card.  It was so easy to blend on this card - the first time I have used it and very impressed.  I stamped the Umbrella Man - such a favourite of mine - and then masked him to stamp the Tower Bridge in the background.  The stippling  represents the rain falling.  My sentiment refers to 'dancing in the rain' - well Gene Kelly did dance in the rain, as well as 'Singing in the Rain'.  I attached an Ideology fragment with a piece of calendar behind it and  black/grey thread pulled through it.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Res-Q-Challenge - A touch of pink
Daring Cardmakers - Home baked - I made my embellishment
Moving Along with the Times - Card or Project for a male
Paper Romance - Use as many colours as possible
For Your Inspiration - photo inspiration
Creative Card Crew - No flowers
Creative Craft World - Anything goes as long as it is for a male
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything goes with a Vintage/Shabby Theme
