Time for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #76, North By Northwest.
Great movie. We’ve seen it a few times, just one of those classic Hitchcock movies. Cary Grant & Eva Marie Saint–aren’t they just the most cool fashion-stylin’ actors? Just screaming vogue. For my card, this is the snippit from the movie that I took my inspiration, specifically Eva Marie Saint’s shoes.
I am not a shoe person, really, I wear birk’s all summer long, but I did have a pair of these shoes for my high school prom. Italian, spent $90 on them, on sale, over 20 years ago. I loved them. They were identical to Eva Marie’s.
Sure Cuts a Lot Software has been so much fun for me. I drew up a shoe in illustrator, saved it as an SVG & then used SCAL Software to talk to my little Cricut machine. It was cut out on white & then Versa marked & embossed in Black EP. I suppose my card is more of a Cut Out, rather than a piercing; hopefully it’s still okay I played along. I did have fun with it. Here’s my card:
Before drawing up the shoe, I took a peek of what was already out there & here are some examples I looked at. Hope you can find some inspiration with these shoe cards too:
The card is layered a little to give it depth & strength. I think there are actually 5 layered cuts of the shoe.
The Pattered Papers is DSP from Stampin’ Up. A Little Love SU Stamp Set was used in Riding Hood Red Ink & oval punches.
Thanks for the fun inspiration, Cinema folks!
Here’s the shoe I drew …
Oh yes, & here I am in the fancy prom dress & pearls my mum bought for me, earrings my cousin Cheryl gave me, updo salon hair, Brooke Shields eyebrows & my shoes that I oh so loved in 1990 …
