Saturday Movie Challenge #3
Okay....so I have put a lot of thought into this entry. I looked at the movie Saturday and did a little bit of planning yesterday. I couldn't just NOT do this Cinema Saturday Creative challenge. (Again....I haven't seen this movie either! I am super embarrassed....I know, I KNOW!....it is from my generation and this is just the sort of movie that I would've loved....but I never watched it....I had to look for clips and pics online for my ideas, again.)
The main inspiration that really stuck with me was the giant swirl in front of the moon. It is the kind of lasting image that resonates with a viewer. I don't have a lot of Halloween stuff....but I had one lonely pumpkin stamp (CTMH) and some black embossing powder. The heart is from Close to My Heart's chipboard shapes. I got to use my embossing pen and some chalk pastels on this project to add some color and depth to the overall card. I also layered the elements of the card with sticky dots and foam squares to give it some dimensional qualities. Anyway, I hand cut the spiral and used my Coluzal cutting system for the moon. Enjoy!
And, I must say...this card isn't totally a Halloween card with the added heart at the top...But I don't know if I will ever be able to give it away. I want to put it in a frame and enjoy it. I love the aesthetic of the giant swirl and the contrast with the moon...sort of merging Vincent Van Gogh with Tim Burton...
