Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Challenge # 2

Time for Challenge Number Two over at Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls, and for this challenge I've picked one awesomely talented man to focus on;

Terry Gilliam, is a wonderful Artist/Animator, Actor, and Director.  I'm sure many of you will know him from the Monty Python team, but since then he's directed some of the most fantastical fantasy films ever made.

The Challenge is to Create a Card/Project based on any of Terry Gilliam's Work

For my card I decided  to focus on one of his more recent films; The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnususs.
I found this wonderful still from the film, which inspired me to create my card.

Here's the inspiration photo:

and here is my card:
I used a digital paper for my background, to which i add a very ornate frame, I did this in phototshop, and then printed it out at the size i wanted.  I then used two of the soon to be release 'Coquette's from Simply Betty Stamps for my Tony and Valentina.  I cut out the inside of the frame and added some silver foil to the back to give the impression of the mirror.  I layered this onto some black and white polka dot paper, and a silver card blank.

You have a week to join in the challenge, still needing some inspiration then hop over to the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Blog to see the truly magical creations from the rest of the BBDolls.

Have a great week
