Cinema Saturday#49-The Two Towers and Allsorts Challenge #18

The movie for inspiration at the Cinema Saturday Challenge was The Two Towers-Lord of the Rings. I really enjoyed all of the Lord of the Rings movies. To me, this movie is about the conflict of good and evil. That is why I tried to use black and white on this card. I used this saying because I think it goes with this movie too. They all banded together, became friends and gained the strength to fight evil.

I recently bought this stamp set from Verve. I rubbed blue and green ink on a glossy panels. I embossed the saying and image with black embossing powder. I added the black and white designer papers. There are 3 clear raindrop gems in the left corner but they are hard to see. I used the sketch from the Allsorts challenge. You were also supposed to use only 2 colors. Besides the black and white I used green and blue, my favorite colors! Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Hi Julia,
    I've always loved coming by to see how you interpret the cinema challenges. This is a great one, love the concept that you've taken from the movie and centered your project around it.

    If you will email me your snail mail address, I will stamp you a few PB images to experiment with :) I have regular card stock and watercolour paper, just let me know which one you prefer.
