Singing In The Rain

The current challenge at Dragons Dream Tag It On is for a Film of your Choice , some Texture, Embellishment and a Hint of Red. The one real rule is to use at least one real stamp.

I don’t get to the movies much.  I think the last one I went to was Despicable Me II, with Liam.  I figured this would be way too hard with a Minion stamp, lol (I do love those minions though)

So for inspiration I did a good old Google search for the top 20 movies of all times.  This one jumped out at me as one that I had the perfect stamp for.


I used a home-made stencil and texture past for the rain drops and when dry I inked the background with Forest Moss,Weathered Wood and Stormy Skies Distress Inks.  I downloaded some movie stills images and printed them as a contact sheet but at 40%.  I hit the nail on the head as they turned out to be the perfect size for the Tim Holtz Film Strip.  I attached the strip to the tag with two red brads.  I stamped the Umbrella Man on spare manila cardstock, cut him out, inked the edges and popped him up on foam.  I re-stamped the umbrella, popped that on foam too and added a layer of Dimensional Magic.

Here’s a closer look at the detail.


Thanks again for popping in to take a look.  Why not join in with the challenge?

Cheers, Esther  xoxo
