Can You Guess the Movie that Inspired this Halloween Card?

Hello Everyone.

I have a fun Halloween card to share that I made for a few challenges. The AAA CAS game was having a fun film inspired theme..No peaking. I am sure you can guess the movie that was my inspiration. See below for the answer. ;0) . I also used the sketch from CTS#243 and will submit it to  one other challenge it is fitting for that is the PP#366.

This was such fun to make. It is the first time I did a gloomy sky using the galaxy sky technique, I just didn’t use any splatters of white. Well on with the card design hope you like it and let me know if you are able to guess the movie.

I started with an A2 top folded card. I wanted a grungy, distressed, imperfect looking spiderweb so I used black soot distress ink on an embossing folder to stamp the design as I knew it wouldn’t pick up that much ink like a stamp would. I glued a strip of black card stock.

Then created the gloomy sky back drop on a panel cut from a Sizzix die. I used Zigg Clean Color markers in orange, green and purple. Just slopped in patches. Let it dry and covered it in black soot distress ink.

I did some masking for the witch hat on the craft bird stamp. I fussy cut the bird. I placed the bird on the panel and then stamped a few birds in Versamark ink flying overhead. These were from the SSS Sea You Soon stamp set. After I did I realized I could have just drew them in with a water mark pen.

I was going for an overall black and white palette as the movie I chose for my inspiration was done in black and white. It was an old classic thriller. Have you guessed yet?

I did add on a pop of color by adding the pumpkin to finish of the card.

Stamps: Tim Holtz Crazy Birds and the accessory stamp set.
Inks: Zigg Clean Color Markers, Black soot distress ink, Versafine Onyx black and Versamark.

  1. This is absolutely FANTASTIC!!! Love the Bird Crazy bird in black and white, and the bright orange pumpkin popping out all on that awesome background. I love everything about it – including the movie inspiration.


  2. Yay, guessed it! And what a super fun Halloween Card The Birds has inspired – always had a horror of massed birds since I first watched it. Thanks for playing along with the Inspired by a Film Challenge at AAA Cards.


  3. Love your Halloween card – that background behind the owl is gorgeous! I didn’t guess The Birds – all I could think of ‘Trick or Treat’ because of the sentiment, but suspected that it wasn’t THAT obvious! Thanks for playing along with us at AAA Cards.


  4. What a fun Hallowen bird card – he’s all ready to trick or treat. I love the background panel behind and those spooky cobwebs too. Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!
