LIM115 - Inspired by our Favorite Film


I'm a little late getting my card(s) for the Less is More challenge completed this week.  We had a big family get together on Saturday and I was completely exhausted on Sunday.  I tried to make a card or two last night, (and I hate to admit it....but after I had the "makings" of 3 cards completed I realized that this week is a ONE LAYER challenge! Geesh....back to the drawing board for me.  I still did my favorite films, I just had to figure out how to make it one layer!

Here's what I came up with for this week's "Film" challenge.


Can you guess the movie?  One of my all time favorites...with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.  Have you seen Overboard?  Funny, funny movie!  It plays quite often on some of our cable channels and I watch it every time I see it playing!  I made the lifesaver float in my Silhouette program and then just printed it rather than cut it.  For the rope handles I had to add a few doodled lines.  I also added a little shading to make it pop a little.  The sentiment is from PTI.


Want to hazard a guess about the film that inspired this card...yep! "Pretty Woman"   I'm not sure who makes this stamp, but I've had it forever and never found the "right" time to use it...but I think that this was the perfect stamp for this film.  I stamped in black and colored with Copics.  I added a few tiny pieces of bling to the necklace and some stickles to the hairpiece.  For the straps of the dress and the lacing in the back, I used a silver star pen from Sakura.  Sentiment is from PTI.



When I was a teenager, my parents took me to see the Sound of Music.  It's still a favorite of mine and I watch it any time it comes on television, and I also have the video disc.  The song My Favorite Things is what inspired this card...you know...raindrops on roses.....Can you see the "raindrops" on my roses?  The image and the sentiment are both from Flourishes and are from the Lenten Rose Collection.  I colored the image with Copics...and added a few drops of glossy accents for my raindrops...easy peasy!

This last card was inspired by the movie Beaches with Bette Midler.  Sweet movie!  Image and sentiment are from Sweet N Sassy stamps.  Colored with Copics and rounded the corners of the card. Super quick!

This card also fits the challenge this week at Addicted to Stamps and More.  Here's the inspiration photo for this week's challenge:
