Movie Inspired + NON Challenge #25

Hello out there!

Who doesn't love a good movie?!  I really love watching movies and have been doing a lot of it lately since my husband recently had surgery.  It's a great way to kick back and relax with great entertainment :)  This month I was excited to hear that our theme for the Naughty or Nice Challenge is "At the Movies". SO many possibilities with this one! Let's see if you have a guess as to what inspired this month's card....

Any ideas?

As soon as I got it I thought "Alice in Wonderland"! I love that movie and the remake with Johnny Depp was the first movie my son saw when he was a baby. We went to a drive in and I expected to nurse him so he'd fall asleep the whole time, but he had other plans and watched almost the entire thing, which absolutely amazed me!  He must have loved all the beautiful colors in it :) OK back to the card....if you're going to analyze all the details, sure some of the things are not in the movie at all. Alice didn't have a bear, she had a cat, BUT she did have singing flowers all around, and everyone remembers the Queen of Heart and the cards. There's even a little teacup! She's got long hair and a dress like Alice, and even has (what I assume) are earmuffs, which can totally represent Alice doing what she pleases and not listening to anyone else.   The movie is so wackadoo and all over the place, so I made the colors do the same thing.  Love :)

I tried to use Copics at first, but I didn't like the way it looked. It was too put together and wasn't exactly what I was looking for.  To make this one, I took watercolor paper and used three colors of Distress Ink to create the background.  I then heat embossed the Gorjuss image in black embossing powder and added a few sequins and called it a day. It's. Perfect :)

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you join us at the NON blog to see what the rest of my teammates came up with and to join us in the fun!

  1. This is great! I nearly went with an Alice link myself (but mine was a bit sweary... So I didn't). I love how you used the image! Jo x

  2. I agree, it's perfect! Alice crossed my mind, too! ;)
