Cinema Saturday - Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

It has been far too long since I've played along with my favorite blog challenge - the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. Each week I *intend* to play, but somehow it doesn't quite happen. But this week I MADE SURE to get my card done! The movie is one of my favorite - the second of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Two Towers. My card is inspired by my favorite character in this movie, Treebeard, and the rest of the Ents. I used my FireCracker Designs by Pamela set called Little Things (which I thought was an aptly titled set to use for a movie primarily about Hobbits!). The rule this week was to include embossing - I used clear embossing powder in a resist technique, so I could use a brayer to create the background without inking up the trees. The "Have Courage" sentiment is also in this same set - again, appropriate, because those little Hobbits show such great courage in all of the Lord of the Rings movies! Thanks Brooke & Sankari for another fun inspiration!
