Starlet Tiffany!

Hello, hope all is well with you and yours.

Today I would like to share a card I made for a friend of mine who is a vintage film fanatic.  Her husband wanted me to make her a card that reflected her mild obsession with movies of the 30’s and 40’s.  So this is what I came up with.

The 'pin' is a silver piece of Card Candi; looks multicoloured here though(?)

The image is from MilkCoffee  and is called ‘Glamorous Tiffany in Her Night Gown’ .  I thought she had the look of a black and white movie starlet so I coloured her with my Promarkers in greyscale and made her into a photograph pinned to a wall, well a piece of embossed and sanded Core’dinations to be precise.  

The 'autograph' is my untidy scrawl.  

I printed the clapperboard and filmstrip free from the web, stamped a script onto a piece of vellum and I made the roses using a Sizzix Bigz die.  The idea is that the roses are fading and losing their petals.  Not too sure if that’s how it looks.

And there you go.  I hope she likes it.

See ya!

Smiling always (!)!

Scribbly hugs

  13. This is GORGEOUS Jane! As a film nut myself (with the film studies degree to prove it, lol), I can honestly say that *this* is exactly the kind of card I'd want hubby to get someone to make for me. Not that hubby has ever gotten me a birthday card, but if he did... This is the one! :-) x
