Have any of you seen this film? It’s one of my favorites from the last year – so unique. And the costume design was spectacular. Both my man and I were impressed that despite miniscule amounts of actual language, we were spellbound throughout. That Berenice Bejo has got to show up in more movies. She was utterly charming.
When I visited Bo Bunny Press’ blog, they suggested shaped cards, and I immediately thought of those gorgeous head hugging hats that Bejo wore in “The Artist.” So I hand drew and cut out my own hat-shaped card, then decorated using Bo Bunny’s Ambrosia papers, Bigz dies from Sizzix, and a flower punch from Martha Stewart. The sentiment is from my versatile Hampton Art Footlong, and it was inked with Colorbox Frost White.
I popped the bottom rim of the hat on pop dots to give a sense of depth, and I blended some Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink on the interior of the hat for some shadow. I wanted a tiny sentiment that wouldn’t interfere with the hat illusion. So I inked up with my juicy Colorbox, then heat embossed with fine clear embossing powder from Ranger.
This was great fun and came together so quickly! A new challenge site, Crafty Friends, is currently having a Vintage play, so here goes for that one, too!
Wish my head was smaller and that this kind of hat looked good on me – I’d be all over it!
OK, guys! I think after this shaped card, I must yank myself out of my craft room and do something different. Thinking I may get in the garden, perhaps pot up some of my furry Rudbeckia that are ready to be transplanted.
Before I sign off, since it’s my young friend Julie’s birthday and she already received her card from me, I can show you the Floral Explosion Card that I made for her!
If you are interested, you can see more of my cards at my online gallery here! Hope this “bit” o’ color and vintage style brightens up your day! Later y’all!
