Good Morning Everyone - welcome to our 49th Challenge!!! HOW amazing is that! Well, we are starting the party early with some blog candy (more about that later) and are excited to feautre the second movie in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy: The Two Towers!
Do you know that among its 65 WINS, this movie also has two Oscars. This movie brings out the vision of JR.Tolkien's masterpiece book- the Lord of the Rings onto the silver screen (you can check out Tolkien's main page to learn more about him). This second part of the trilogy focuses on the separate journeys of the disbanded Fellowship of the first movie. It is full of beauty and magic (the Ents), of the rousing of the spirit of a people (Rohan), of the coming together and destroying the darkness (Battle at Helm's Deep) and the depth of friendship, trust, loyalty and courage (every single main and side story :). It is an amazing journey to be transported to this other world.
This week's challenge requirement is embossing.
There are SO many different types of embossing that you can do - so don't worry if you don't have any powders or a heat gun. You can always do faux embossing, scoring/embossing, use an embossing plate if you have a Big Shot or Cuttlebug, or of course you can do embossing with powders among others.
This week, we are so pleased to have 2 guest designers join us! Carol Dunstan of Inkantations and Incarnations and our Audrey recipient from last week Jen Cuthbertson of I'm Crafty. Thank you so much ladies for playing along with us!
Sankari's Card inspired by the movie: The Two Towers:
I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy - both the book and the movies. The details, the magic, the transportation into a different land and era is simply magical. And of course, Viggo as Aragorn is SO yummy :) For my card this week, I was inspired by the speech of Sam towards the end of the movie - where he gives Frodo hope in a time of darkness. He says: "Even the Darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer." I love this quote that Sam says - it sort of puts together all the elements of this movie and sets it up for the last movie: The Return of the King. So I printed out this quote in a Hobbit font and cut it out with my spellbinders. I kept the colors muted as the cloaks of the hobbits were and the little heart button is a symbol of Sam's pure hearted devotion to Frodo - so sweet and inspiring!
Please check out my blog for more details, more pictures and a video :) And I hope you will join us and play along this week!
Brooke's Card inspired by the movie: "Two Towers"
When I say the dress thatwas wearing I knew I was using blue... As I was watching the movie I had a moment of inspiration when Merry and Pippin were with the Ents (Trees).. So I started a tree that I think ended up looking like it belongs more in Rivendale... This movie as do all the L.O.T.R's movies has such a huge FRIENDSHIP overtone. I wanted to show how loyal all the different characters in this movie are. Sam edifies the ultimate friend.
This card is for all my amazing friends that I have meet through Cinema Saturday challenges...
Love you all.
Come see my inspiration and a little more... Here
