Cinema Saturday #79

Hey again everybody! I know I have been quiet again, I just never seem to think of blogging at the right time (ie when I am on the computer and have time), so you haven't heard a lot from me lately. I am off to Stampin' Up! Convention tomorrow, which is very exciting, but I just had to take time out from preparing for that to make a card for this weeks Cinema Saturday challenge: New Moon. As busy as I am, how could I NOT make a card for this??? Let's start with the inside of the card, since that is also the first thing I did...
I had come across a nice clear graphic of the wolf-pack tatoo at deviantart and really really wanted to use it but couldn't fit it on the front, so inside it went. Did a test print or two to get the position right since this was going directly on the inside of the card base.

Now for the front of the card... Quite some time back I had seen this card and had wanted to give it a go, I just never had the right motivation. I very nearly did a card like that for the Australia Cinema Saturday challenge, however I chickened out! This time, since having done numerous Twilight inspired cards and having no new ideas... I remembered the "man card" and the time was right.
If you don't recognise it, my card is based on Jacob Black's bare & buff New Moon body. Following Bevithia's directions, with close scrutiny of a few photos of Jacob (a girl has to suffer for her art...) and after whole lotta sponging - I was done and pretty happy with the result!

Even more impressive is getting through this post with no innuendo...
