First of all - A HUGE thank you to everyone for their beautiful birthday wishes and cards - you guys completely surprised me and I can't even begin to thank you for making my birthday so special! I am so sorry to post my Cinema Saturday post on a sunday - but it was so much fun to take a day off of blogging and just eat cake and hang out with my wee ones the whole time :))) As for which movie we are doing this week, a big highfive to Nancy K. for guessing that today's movie might have a little Johnny Depp flavor to it :))) Ha! You know us toooo well! I am not a scary movie kinda girl, but am willing to watch anything that has Johnny Depp in it :)
Welcome Everyone to our 94th Cinema Saturday challenge where every week we pick a different movie and then create a card by drawing inspiration from that movie. This week we are marking the change of seasons as summer closes and fall leaves appear with featuring the movie from 1999:Sleepy Hollow (starring Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci). This Oscar winning movie (for Best Art Direction) captures the Legend of Sleepy Hollow with a Tim Burton feel to it - no one can take you into a different realm or put an alternate spin on reality quite like Tim Burton! You can read the whole plot summary here. The challenge requirement for this movie is to use a Halloween tree in your creation - Sleepy Hollow is full of woods - so we thought it would be fun to use the Halloween tree element in our challenge requirement today.
The main thing that I wanted to create in the card was a feeling of the mist, and dark woods of Sleepy Hollow where the Headless Horseman rides - I wish I could have figured out how to add wispy white mists without smearing the card. I stamped and embossed the trees on a metallic silver paper and the bottom and top part of the card use black shimmery chunky glitter paper:
Paper: Bazzill silver metallic paper and black paper
Stamps: The tree is from the Frightful Night stamp set and the sentiment is from the Trick or Sweet stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Stazon Black, VersaMark, Clear EP, Stazon White
Accessories: embossing gun, clear EP, Adirondacks liquid pearls (chili pepper), wave cutter from CM, circle punch, white with black dot ribbon and dimensionals
I LOVE Johnny Depp in this movie - really - he is SO Tim Burtonesque and brings a whole other dimension to how he plays and portrays Ichabod Crane. And Kristinia Ricci (wow! she is so blonde!) really shows the depth of her acting skills. I hope that you enjoy creating a card to this movie! The crispness of fall is in the air and I am so excited to get out our sweaters and go for some hikes (but definitely NOT in woods like the ones from Sleepy Hollow - LOL!!)
Hope you guys play along this week!!!
