may atc swap - movies

This was such a fun swap....actually all of them are fun! Our theme for the Blissfull ATC swap is MOVIES. I received this great 'Pinocchio' card from my swap partner Chrissy. It is just adorable and I love the way she used alcohol ink to color the canvas. It really made me smile when I opened up my little envelope. Thank you Chrissy!

For my ATC I gathered different movie related images, including a vintage French film poster. I also found a fun retro image of a movie audience wearing 3d glasses. Once I started putting it together I thought it would be fun to make 2 cards.

So I made a folder connected with a piece of old negative film.

I also used negative strips for the collage and finished it all with charcoal ink stain and silver metallic pen. I thought the 2 cards together gave it a 'widescreen' affect.

You can see more great movie ATCs at the Blissfull ATC Swap Flickr page.

Oh my gosh.. What an awsome swap! BOTH of your cards are fabulous! I really got a kick out of the Pinocchio card. I'm a kid at heart, and just LOVED it as soon as I saw it!.. And YOURS?.. I LOVE every little element you've tied together! Beautiful work, and FUN!.. I don't want to show my own till my swap partner gets hers. I mailed it by the due date, but the postal service estimated a whole WEEK'S time for delivery! I couldn't understand THAT, but.. Oh well, I still really enjoyed the movie theme, and now I'm just wondering if NEXT month's theme is up yet! Looking forward to it!... Have a great weekend! ~tina

What great cards Anna! I provided your partner in the Treasures of the Sea swap with your address. She lives in Canada and a postal strike is looming so she was anxious to get it out to you before she couldn't. (She sent you a flickrmail.)
