Day 11 of 31

Hello Lovelies,  I hope this day finds you all doing spookingly well!!!  I have for you today another Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls challenge!  Today we challenge you to design your project around the works of  Terry Gilliam.    There are some awesome project over on the blog with all the challenge information so head over there for all the bits and baubles you need for this!!!
I based my card off of this movie poster!

This is one crazy movie, if you haven’t seen it I recommend it!  Here is my project:

Now for my 31 days project.  I made this wreath for a friend of mine.  I sent it out to her so that she could use it this Halloween if she wanted to!  I used the Build a Zombie set from Smeared Ink.  I am showing you what the set looks like because unless you look really closely you can’t see where I stamped on the paper!

So what I did was stamp the top half of the page(no alphabet) onto regular printer paper.  I then cut each of these in half and added two pages from old books.  There are also flowers that just have pages from old books!  I then rolled my arms off!!!LOL  This wreath took 152 flowers to fill!!!  I think it turned out wonderfully and hope my friend does too!!

OMG, Kelli! I was soooo surprised to receive this in the mail! Your work is incredible! Even my hubby marveled at the craftsmanship and when I pointed out that you used stamp images in the flowers he said, "Whoa!". This must have taken you forever...and you gave it to me...I am so touched! This gift totally lifted my spirits as Sept. and Oct. have been rough so far. Thank you just doesn't seem to express my gratitude! Luvs Ya! I will take pics of it hanging this weekend and post it so everyone can see this awesome wreath in its new home!

The wreath is completely amazing and such a thoughtful gift for Lady B! I'd like to see how to do those flowers too. And love your interpretation of the movie poster too. I love looking at photos or artwork and trying to interpret it with rubber stamps!
