Can you feel it?
Fall is in the air: Halloween decor is appearing everywhere, and the leaves are starting to turn!
The Cinema Sisters are feeling it over at Cinema Saturday with this film:
Ah, the fabulous team of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp; So many films together in recent years, that after watching Beetlejuice the other day, I felt something was missing. Then I realized with a laugh, there was no Johnny Depp.
So, for this challenge, along with inspiration from the film, we are to use a Halloween (aka "spooky") tree.
I totally forgot I had a wheel full of Halloween trees, but I unearthed it, as it is perfect for this challenge, and I also used some color inspiration from the film. Tim Burton films always strike me as "dark", some more than others (including Sleepy Hollow), but he has such great use of color. In Sleepy Hollow, as well as a few other of Burton's films, I love the splashes of warm colors he uses, red especially stands out, so I wanted to use the "dark" tree images, with a warm colored background. This is how I image Sleepy Hollow would look as the sun comes up on an autumn morning:
I used the emboss resist and polished stone techniques on this card. Supplies used: Spooky Skyline Jumbo wheel (ret.), Tiny Tags set; Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Glossy White c/s; Versamark, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, and Copper inks;
