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. 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.


  2. 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.


  3. 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!
