At the Movies

Happy Tuesday,

I hope you all had a good weekend and all the dads out there enjoyed their Father's Day. I lost my dad when I was a teenager, but have a wonderful step dad who has really been through the mill after losing my mum earlier this year. It was good to see him smile when we took him out for a carvery lunch on Sunday.

I have a new DT project today for the next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week Joan has chosen the theme of


Now, I did struggle with this one a little - but my trusty little 'birds' came to the rescue. Here's what I created for a little inspiration ...

It's fairly 'Clean and Simple' with a little masking to help my stamping.  First I stamped the section of 'film strip' using black archival ink. Then I masked the top and bottom before stamping just sections of two of the 'Crazy Birds' by Tim Holtz - I love these little critters. I had to move the masking to cover the film strip and then stamped the third bird as if he is looking down at the others. I added some shading with my graphite pencil, and just touches of colour around their beaks and eyes.

My movie title 'The Birds' was created on my pc and shaded again with the pencil. I didn't realises until I checked, but the Hitchcock movie was made in 1963 - same as me! Now there's a coincidence - I feel rather an old 'bird' at the moment too! Lol.

Hope you will come and join us with your own movie themed projects.
Hugz, Jan xx

  2. Hi Jan this is a wonderful card. Those birds are amazing. Take care. Hug Jackie

  3. Hi Jan
    I love this card. This bird stamp set seems to be so useful and can be altered for any occasion. I think it will have to be added to my collection.
    You are not old by the way, just maturing beautifully.
    Take care

  4. What a great idea! I love your card! I was just watching the movie a few weeks ago so I kinda got "chills" when I saw it!
