- Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDCC137 - splash of colour - blue
- Do You Stack Up? - DYSU#77 - to make a card based on a movie
I love the brilliant blue colour on the PDCC graphic - so striking. Then I saw the theme for DYSU? And the rest was easy. One of my all time favourite films is David Lynch's Blue Velvet. It's not an easy film, and it may be one you either love or hate, but I love it! The acting is absolutely fantastic and features two of my favourites - Isabella Rosellini and Kyle MacLachlan. There are some amazing images in the film and one that stands out for me is the roses against a fence:
So the film Blue Velvet, and the image above are the inspiration for my card. I've changed the red roses to blue roses. I've changed the white picket fence too; on my card it is a black ornate metal fence. I've gone for overblown roses. I stamped them in water soluble ink on watercolour paper and lightly spritzed each flower, allowing the colour to bleed. Once the roses were dry, I over stamped the rose outline and cut them out. I used Pinflair to attach the roses and to give some dimension to the card. I decided not to include a sentiment, but to let the image stand on its own.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Fifth Avenue Floral
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Blue Breeze
Accessories: Memory Box die - Estate Fence; Watercolour paper; Card from stash
Before I go, I am delighted and honoured to have been picked as one of the "Fab 4" for PDCC136 with this card, full details can be found here:
That's all for now. See you soon.
Deb, I love your inspiration from the movie! You did a great job transferring that to a card. :) Beautiful!

That's a really clever way to approach a movie challenge Deborah and the resulting card is fab! Love the overstamped roses - brilliant technique.
Congratulations :) Being in a top/fab 4 is always exciting! Love both your cards.
