Cinema Saturday #14 part 5

The next card I have for you in the Cinema Saturday #14 series is for the other Fellowship member who parted ways in the FOTR movie: Boromir. Boromir's costume has a lot of texture and detail, and I have drawn on a few specific parts for this card. The background is based on Boromir's fur-line cloak, most prominent as they trudge through the snow. It was impossible to replicate burn-out velvet with cardstock so I just opted to stamp the swirly design in Chocolate Chip so it had the darker colour like the design on the cloak appears darker than the velvet nap (in truth the back of the velvet is the same colour as the nap it is just the lining fabric that makes it appear darker... some geeky costume details for you!). Of course the Close To Cocoa velvet ribbon had to come out again for the fur lining. The Ruby Red layer is inspired by the gorgeous bullion embroidery on the sleeves of his tunic (~cough~ sari fabric ~cough~), and the framed sentiment piece is supposed to be reminiscent of the decoration on his belt. This is another thank you card because in the end he did good (the EE gives a lot more to his story and thus his end isn't as big a turn-around as it seems in the original cinema version... and I will admit I was tainted with knowledge of ROTK EE too which adds to Boromir's story even more).

Wowie WoW WOW WOW!!!

Carol - this is fantastic! Love the card - love it! Love the fabric feel of the card - that velvet ribbon is perfect -and the way you did the center with the ruby red is awesome! perfect sentiment too.. The Extended editions in FOTR an ROTK really do him full justice... they make his character so much more fuller... This time when I watched FOTR - i totally cried at the end with Boromir and Aragorn... they really filmed that so beautifully... sigh...

(i have to write sigh, everytime I think of Aragorn..) either "sigh" or "YUM" ... but this time it was a "sigh".... LOL!

THank you Carol for being the guest designer this week! you are truly amazing!

lots of hugs and chai latte cheers,
Sankari :)
