cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - #16 - The Wizard of Oz

(notice all the pink.. Explained below....lol)

When I started making the Tin Man costume for my now 16 year old (in 3 days) he was about 7.. I had never sew anything with lamie before.. So who do you call???? MOM of course. She totally helped me finish that project... When Zach is 1st grade he is GOING to were that costume I will have to bribe him because he will want to be a power range , transformer or heaven knows what.. For Kindergarten  next year I am trying to convince him to be a scarecrow... I have the CUTEST costume ever.. I will dig out a photo of my second DS to show you all... It's so dang cute... 

Jumping of track just a little Zach just came in and said "hey mom, that sure is a cute "Tea pot man" card" how cute is that....

From the time we decided to present the "Wizard of Oz" as this week's movie keep having visions of the Tin man in my head... I wanted to focus on just a portion of him the most important part of course. "THE HEART". In my mind I keep seeing just a section of his chest with a heart on a chain and this is how it ended up.. I kinda like the results.... I love the metalic look to this card.. The only trick thing is trying to photograph it... It's just like a mirror.. I didn't think about it until I down loaded the photos. All I was seeing was a big pink reflection (my sweater) back to the drawing board... I used a sanding block from Stampin' Up to distress the edges and body to give it a little life.  What a fun card I have to say! I want to make another "Tin Man" card.. Another favorite character of mine for sure...

Famous quotes:
Tin Woodsman: "If I only had a heart"


Wizard of Oz: As for you, my galvanized friend, you want a heart. You don't know how lucky you are not to have one. Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable.
Tin Woodsman: But I still want one.


Tin Woodsman: I'll see you reach the Wizard, whether I get a heart or not. Beehive, bah! Let her try and make a beehive out of me!

Dorothy: Goodbye, Tinman. Oh, don't cry! You'll rust so dreadfully. Here's your oil can.
Tin Woodsman: Now I know I've got a heart, 'cause it's breaking...

Hope you enjoyed one of my favorites the "Tin Woodsman"

Don't forget to check back for more fun from OZ!

Hugs
Brooke

Adorable Card!!

I only wish my kids could all agree on costumes, too. Like you said, they all want to be something different and what's "trendy", NOT a hand-me-down. Would love to see more photos!!!

P.S. I'm loving Michael Buble!! Sounds so much like Harry. LOL

Wow, Brooke! This card is amazing! I love how you used the brads down the front to mimic the way he's put together. The heart image is one that always sticks out in my mind, too. You've done it up perfectly here!
