Good Saturday Morning Everyone,
Its time for the third challenge for this week's Cinema Saturday Challenge where we have picked Tim Burton's 1993 movie: The Nightmare Before Christmas! YAY!
You know when this movie came out, I was really resistant to watching it because I thought it would be scary and kinda like a horror flick - which I am totaaaaallllly not into and so I didn't watch it for almost 10 years! By that time, I was married and my DH is a fan of Tim Burton and was shocked that I hadn't seen it - and after reassuring me that it wasn't like a horror flick at all - we watched it and to my surprise I loved this movie! It was just soooo clever from the very beginning - it was like being transported into a different world and the most amazing thing was that at some point all these elements were clay!!
I love Tim Burton's imagination - he is just so creative and clever. In creating this card I wanted to create something that had a whimsy feel and something with a lot of textures since this movie is a claymation film.... and so this is what I came up with:
I love that scene where Jack is singing (I think it is called Jack's Lament) and he is a silhouette against the moon standing on the hill whose edge is a spiral.... so I drew a rough template and cut out some cardstock and painted them different shades of blue, gray and purple and then drew some swirls on them. The black background is embossed with polysparkle EP and then the top edges were corner rounded. I cut out some circles using my CM cutters, crumpled them up for texture and then painted them gold. On the front circle, I painted a swirl. Most of the elements of the card are mounted on dimensionals.
The stamped sentiment is from the Frightful night set by Taylor and the ribbon is a find that my MIL had sent me in a package (she is the best!) - I was psyched that it had a dotted theme too :)
We would love for you to play along!! Want to play along but tired of Halloween cards - no worries - you can create anything from the Christmas themes in the movie or the love theme between Jack & Sally ...... or anything in between!
