Totally Papercrafts #27 Going To The Movies

 Morning everyone,
it's time for another challenge over at Totally Papercrafts
and this week's theme is

Going to the Movies

I am a huge movie fan,
but I did struggle with this challenge.
So get your thinking caps on ladies -
we are all looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
This week our sponsor is the wonderful
Simon Says.
Check out the blog for the prize and to see
last week's winners.

Here's my card for the film Moulin Rouge.


I used an Anya stamp, coloured with Copics then
 ruffled up a piece of sparkly ribbon and
pushed it through a slit that I made around her skirt
with a craft knife.
I made the 'curtain' and the sentiment on my computer.
For the 'bodice' effect, I used eyelets,
threaded with black ribbon and then added a little heart charm.

Stamp - The Greeting Farm - Miss Anya Dressy.
Design Paper - Papermania Capsule Collection Mono
Heart charm from the Hobby House
Adhesive pearls and ribbon from my stash.

Hi, do you know what stamp set this is? I recently purchased this set at a consignment sale and I don't have any info. I love what you have done with this image!

Hi Rachel, can't find anywhere on your google page to message you, so hope you see this.
The stamp is an old one, part of a Greeting Farm set called Miss Anya Dressy.
