FRED.E.MERCURY....HEAVY METAL DUDE !!!

Do ya get it... heavy metal....mercury...... hahaha LoL
This week on Simply Create the Challenge is METAL and we are sponsored by Dude Time Doodles

I have created this.....
The image is "Hippy Rocker" from  Dude Time Doodles, but I wanted him to be a heavy metal rocker (hence the name..mercury - 'cos it's a heavy metal .. LoL) I coloured him in my graphics package and then cut him out of card. Then I used the 'paper piecing' tecnique to make him a leather jacket (leather snarfed out of my husband's old wallet), and his tin foil trousers. He has a chain belt made from and old necklace, but I used his original BTB buckle. The guitar was also covered with tinfoil, and then all the pieces of him were 3D'd. His head actually wobbles 'cos I made a spring out of fuse wire and stuck it behind, but you can't see a jiggling head on a photo. It was bad enough trying to keep my reflection out of the tin backing !!
Here is a bigger pikkie of him.....

I used plain black cardstock for the card (250gm 'cos of the added weight) and used a metal lid cut in half, and then joined again with paperclips, as a main panel. Over this I stuck some music paper (out of a Christmas cracker) and I typed out some words to 'All TheYoung Dudes' (courtesy of Mr Bowie) 'cos this image is a Dude onto plain paper, which I then got my DH to drip his coffee onto. This is kind of to represent the musicians scribblings when they are composing. !! I roughly tore the edge of this and stuck it on and Voila !.
I hope you like him or at least he makes you smile.
Why not pop over and join the Challenge at Simply Create. Thanks for looking.

  2. Awesome card. I love the detailed post. I feel like i am sitting there watching you put this card together. Was kinda of expecting Lyrics from queen. Lol But your choice of Bowie is cool! It is a fun card that did make me smile. Thank you for taking time to visit my blog and for leaving me positive feedback. Well appreciated.

    Happy crafting
