Cinema Saturday #14 part 7

Yet more Arwen cards for Cinema Saturday #14. These ones are inspired by the "bridge dress", seen when Arwen approaches Aragorn by the shards of Narsil and later when they kiss on the bridge (hence the name) and Arwen gives Aragorn Evenstar. Lots of white on white, which is good because I have been wanting to do another monochromatic white card for some time (though technically this isn't monochromatic as I've used silver, but close enough in this instance). For both cards I have used the So Swirly wheel for the background, stamping in VersaMark then applying Heat & Stick powder, heating that, applying Dazzling Diamonds glitter and then heating it again to fix it. This was to represent Arwen's dress, which was so covered in beads it was very noisy when Liv Tyler moved in it! I've also used a flower from the Pretties because it is pretty and has a similar shape the main part of Evenstar. I've also drawn on her head-dress for the crystals, though I have incorporated the hatpin differently in the two cards.
This second card has an additional scallop edge and is missing the Styled Silver ribbon slide. I wanted the hatpin and clead beads to appear a lot more dangle-y on this card

I've looked through all the cards you've made for the cinema challenge and I have come to the conclusion the you may be a fan of LOTR? Possibly???

The cards look LOVELY and really made me want to pull out the books and DVD's again!
