CAS-ual Movie

Good evening!

I'm popping in last minute to participate in CAS-ual fridays Challenge. The challenge is to do a card inspired by a movie.

I immediately thought Disney movies for some reason :) Can you guess which movie?

Yep, it's Snow White! I would have done Beauty and the Beast if I hadn't talked myself out of buying the Penny Black Love Assortment set that Rose is sooo gorgeous! Since I was sans rose I started looking through my stamps while thinking Disney . . ..Disney . . .then I saw the apple in the Hero Arts Simply the Best set. PERFECT!

I stamped the apple in the center of a white card base then again on a scrap white piece. I fussy cut the second one and colored with festive berries, barn door, fired brick, and aged mahogany. The leaf is crushed olive, peeled paint, and forest moss. I gave the whole thing a healthy coat of glossy accents. I mean how can an apple be enticing without lots of shine? :)

I wanted to play to the poison part while still keeping the design simple. I used the tree from the Hero Arts Halloween set Frightful to stamp a background/border. I think it is reminiscent of creepy evil woods. I rubbed on some pumice stone and black soot to bring it together.

So that's it, very simple card tonight. Thanks for taking a peek!
P.S. Please forgive the awful photo. My computer died and it's not worth fixing so I am using a spare that has no photo editing software until my new computer arrives.
