Drunken Stampers #133 - Edward Scissorhands

I can't believe it - we're at the Midnight Margaritas' last challenge of the term! I have had so much fun with the great gals of the Designated Designers...do YOU want to join us next term? There's a call for fun crafty folks - check it out here.

Now to this week's challenge - be inspired by the movie "Edward Scissorhands" or sewing. I  went for sewing - I actually wanted to re-watch this movie for the challenge but couldn't get my hands on it. It's been at least 20 years since I saw it, and I KNEW I wouldn't be able to remember anything accurately. (Except, was Winona blonde? With long hair?)



Supplies: PTI stamps borrowed from Barb, who rocks; Sassafras paper; Webster's Pages trim; Distress inks: Spiced Marmalade, Old Paper, Peacock Feathers; Memento Grey Flannel ink; green embroidery thread & needle

You'll have to click it to see full-size, but the little green cross-stitching was part of the patterned paper, and I sewed over it for some more dimension. The spool of thread is stamped twice, fussy cut & popped up. And that wonky trim just went perfectly with the shabby layers of the patterned paper - and the whole thing says 'crazy', which draws it back to the sentiment. (Yes, I patted myself on the back. Why?)

Our linky will be open until next Friday night, June 28th. Check out what the rest of the Midnight Margaritas made:



And don't forget to check out the details for the DT call while you're at it!

xoxo,
Jessi

I don't remember much about the movie myself... other than it was quite weird lol. Sewing is a much safer option for sure, another fab card Jessi!

Sweet card work Jessi, and I do think Winona's hair was blonde. And Johnny kind of looked like a serial scissor killer LOL

Oh I love that frilly stuff at the edge of the card! I love the sentiment too. All I remember about that movie is that he couldn't hug anyone without cutting them up.

Never seen the movie, but I do accuse hubby of being Edward Scissor Toes lol. I love this card - everything on it works so well together and the colours are so fun and cheery.

Hugs, Dawn
