I said I'd try and come up with something a bit less obvious for this week's LIM film inspiration challenge and Gillian's Monster's Inc card (No 5 in the gallery) lead me down the Pixar path - we LOVE all the pixar movies in our house but our favourite has to be "UP" and my first card is quite a literal translation for a scene from the film.
I used a house stamp from Maya Road and then masked a balloon from Mama Elephant repeatedly and "tied" them all to the roof, just like Carl does in the film, only I just had to use a pen ;-) The house is brightly coloured just like in the film. I thought the sentiment also from Mama Elephant Good Times was perfect as it really summed up the theme of the movie.
This one might not be quite so obvious - it's a little bull from Mama Elephant's Cosmic Stars set and IRL I've coloured him red but it looks brown in the photo. The idea of the red was to make him angry which should give you a clue to the film............. Raging Bull of course!
My final card is also my entry to CASology this week where the trigger word is "Travel" http://casology.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/week-39-travel.html
I was inspired by Blue Thunder - a film from the 80's which centres around a helicopter. I went with a blue base (made more sense than having a blue helicopter on a different coloured sky!) and cut a mat with a circular cut out to create a circular slider card and added a helicopter (Clearly Besotted's Going Places). I stuck 2 x 5 pence pieces behind the helicopter separated with a round foam pad so that the helicopter to can fly in circles around the card. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I coloured the helicopter with copics and fussy cut. Very CAS but cute and fun (unlike the film that inspired it!)
I think that's all my film inspiration exhausted now.
