Julie and Julia - On the Red Challenge
Good morning to all you crafty people!
The CAS-ual Fridays challenge has been brewing in my mind for a few days and yesterday this little gal from Verve's Twitterpated set came to mind as a perfect fit for the On the Red challenge. Either Julia... or Julie. Can you guess the movie that is inspiring this card? Not hard since I gave you two-thirds of the title... Julie and Julia.
There is a point where Julie goes to a museum of sorts about Julia and stands in front of a portrait. This is where my card's inspiration comes.
I selected some small pattern paper from the Love Me pack by My Mind's Eye. A lacey dress for Julie. A heart pattern for the frame. Some polka-dots for dress ruffle.
My little gal is stamped on some cream paper with Tuxedo Black ink and colored with a few Copic markers. She gets a little platinum liquid pearl treatment on her dotted tresses before she is paper-piece dressed and don't forget the polka-dot ruffle. She also got a bit of a lift from some dimensional dots. I added a little pearl necklace made from a dot of liquid pearl and AtYou Silver Spica Pen.
The frame is cut using the Rounded Scallop Frame Die from Verve's A Cut Above line. I stamped a linen background stamp on it for texture. The heart pattern received a "hand-stitched" border using a PITT artist pen and a Omni-grid ruler. A sentiment in Cocoa ink is die cut out using another Verve-y good die called Charming Oval Die Set and popped up with dimensionals.
I finished the design off with some more hand drawn stitching and stamped some hearts under the frame from the Twitterpated set.
The CFC #38 challenge runs up to 11:59 pm EST on Wednesday. It's CAS so you have lots of time to get one in before the deadline. What's your favorite movie?
