Welcome Everyone to our 61st Challenge: the 2001 movie"A Knight's Tale". Every saturday over at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, we pick a movie from which to create a card/layout etc. from. This week, we chose the romantic comedy adventure movie: A Knight's Tale (starring the talented Heath Ledger - still can't believe his passing). The tagline of this movie is: "From peasant to knight, one man can change his stars" so we decided that we would make the challenge requirement to be to add a star to your creations. If you haven't seen this movie - I would totally recommend it - it is fun, has a modern twist in a renaissance movie and is full of romance, valor and comedy.
I have to say that I was a little skeptical about this movie when it first came out but as soon as we started to watch it - I really fell in LOVE with it and since then, I have seen it at least 15 to 20 times over the years. Its just a sweet story with a modern feel (if you haven't seen it yet - its an awesome date night movie - as I think the DHs will like the jousting/and all of that too). I made my card inspired by the romance between Jocelyn and William. She asks him at one point that if he loves her - he will lose each joust in the tournament... love those scenes between them). I created this card based on the saturday sketch (you can check out the album here and upload your card with the tag sk010910) at Paper Craft Planet.
Paper: Prism cardstock and Cool copper from the Paper Company
Ink: MEmento Tuxedo Black, Brilliance Silver, Platinum, Copper inks
Stamps: Swirly Stars (stars from Verve) and the crest is a download from the internet
Accessories: corner rounder, dimensionals, gromet, EK success punch, heart love pin, Fleur de Lis embossing, Spellbinders.
I used the fluer-de lis since the tournament happened in France, the copper and the silver to show the metalwork in the movie, and the red for the love between Jocelyn and William. I LOVE the part where they create their own crest - a Phoenix rising from the ashes - this is such a symbol to me in the movie - of the power you have to create the life that you desire and to forge ahead through all difficulties and obstacles.
I had so much fun making this card - and I hope that you will join us over at Cinema Saturday and play along with us!! We just created a little inspiration corner to help with ideas so if you have been wanting to play along but perhaps thought it seemed to hard - please do check it out - we hope it helps!!
