Cinema Saturday #34-Ocean's 11

I am so very honored to say that I was one of the lucky winners of the Twilight challenge two weeks ago at Cinema Saturday. What fun!!! I get to be a guest designer for this week's challenge. They are doing Ocean's 11 this week. I just love this movie!
Here is what it inspired me to make:

I pulled my inspiration from a variety of different things in the movie. The one requirement for this challenge was to use brads (Brad Pitt) and I chose to use the pearl brads for buttons on the shirt. The suit is very reminiscent of the ones that many of the characters wore throughout the movie. I would have preferred not to use the bow tie, but I couldn't figure out what to put there and wanted to bring some red to the top of the card. The poker chip and cards are obviously because of the casinos, but I also decided to use aces to represent ones (11...get it? lol). Finally, I chose the sentiment "good luck". It can be for gambling or luck on pulling off the biggest heist in Vegas history. All in all, this was a super fun challenge and I want to thank the girls at Cinema Saturday for giving me this honor.

Materials: PAPER: WorldWin STAMPS: Times New Roman Font (JustRite Stampers) INK: Versafine-Onyx Black (Tsukineko), OTHER: Tux pattern (my own), brads (K&Co), poker chip, tiny playing cards

On a side note, I do want to mention that my new job is going well...it is just extremely exhausting. I never realized how complicated it is to deposit and withdraw money from a financial institution. Go easy on your friendly bank tellers, people!! lol

Thanks for stopping by! Have a creatively wonderful day!
