Cinema Saturday - Waking Ned Devine

You've heard me mention before that one of my favorite challenge blogs is the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. It is just way too much fun! This week's movie is "Waking Ned Devine" - and this week I even played along with the challenge the way I'm supposed to - I actually rented the movie and watched it before stamping!! :-) It was a cute movie - and I was actually inspired to make four cards, but only managed to put two of the four ideas down on paper. Here's the first, which was inspired by a sweet character in the movie, Pig Finn. Poor Finn is a pig farmer, and the girl he loves loves him back, but not enough to get close to him due to the STINK. So, of course I thought immediately of this sweet little Hambo pig, holding a flower to try and smell better for his love. :-) This also incorporated the required theme this week, to include some green on my card. The colors are this week's Color Throwdown - Night of Navy, Kiwi Kiss and Blush Blossom - the Blush Blossom being the color I used on the pig!Card number two is an invitation to Chicken Dinner at Jackie O'Shea's place. If you know the movie, you know what this is about. :-) For me, it was an excuse to ink up my favorite Hambo chickens!! But if you look at those chickens on the Hambo site, you notice that something's a little kooky here - I wanted one chicken to be facing the opposite way from what Timbo (Hambo's awesomely talented illustrator!) had intended. So, I used my nifty mirror image stamp to reverse him. The image didn't stamp as cleanly as I would have liked, so I just traced over him with my Copic multiliner pen before coloring. The card's colors are this week's Color Challenge on Splitcoast - Riding Hood Red, Summer Sun, Kraft & Black. This really shows how addicted I am to Cinema Saturday - usually the silly cards I make are something I could potentially use, somehow - or at least stick on Etsy. This one, well - it's completely just for fun! I guess I do make invitations for hire, so I suppose it will go into my invitation sample portfolio. :-) Thanks for stopping by today! If you want to play this week's movie challenge, the deadline is noon PST tomorrow! But on Friday they will start the sneak peeks for another movie - yay - I can't wait!!! And I'll be back tomorrow with my own From Courtney's Closet challenge - don't forget to get your princess cards made pronto!!! ;-)
