Cinema Saturday #63 - "Australia"

Woohoo! The Cinema Sisters took a well-deserved break in December, and have been back in action since the beginning of January. Though I missed being able to play along the last two weeks - this week I could! Their extra challenge was to use Kraft somewhere in the design.

I really enjoyed the movie "Australia" when hubby & I watched it a few months ago. In this design - I tried to capture the rugged Outback as well as the sophistication and femininity of the lead female character. I think I did okay with my goal via the color combination, elegant image and ribbons and distressing and sponging - in this mostly SU! design.

I used SU! Kraft as the base layer, then created the focal point with Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry & Blush Blossom. Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain and Kraft Taffeta Ribbons, a piece from the Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware Kit and Paper Piercer and Mat Pack. I used plastic wrap to apply some Creamy Caramel ink to border the focal image, then a sponged Soft Suede on the edges of the Kraft to create a subtle frame for the whole design. A Blush Blossom Stampin' Write and a Blender Pen with some Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede fill out the focal image - which comes from the "Dreams du Jour" stamp set. the only thing non-SU is the Nestabilities I used for the focal image. Hope you'll play along too! ENJOY!
