Inspired by My Fair Lady

Welcome to the Gina K Designs Illustrator Challenge to create a card inspired by a movie. You have to use one of the newly release stamps that you can find HERE. Gina will pick next month's CSS Guest DT from one of the participants and will receive the entire May release! How exciting is that? You can find all the details on Gina's blog.

My cards today were inspired by a classic, My Fair Lady, starring one of my favorite actresses, the glamorous Audrey Hepburn. My girls and I watched it together for the first time just a few weeks ago. This movie has it all: great acting, awesome music and beautiful costumes. I remember one scene in particular when Liza was taken out to the public for the first time after she started training under Prof Higgins. It was the horse race scene and the ladies showed up with beautiful gowns and hats on. Those patterns remind me of the ones on my Vintage Backgrounds set.

I followed the colored scheme from the movie poster above for both cards, using Passionate Pink, Black Onyx and Smokey Slate. The first card uses several images from Vintage Backgrounds. The girl from Asela's Sew Pretty set reminds of the high-class ladies from the movie. She has an air of confidence that's similar.


My second card uses the text stamp as background. The little twigs are from Tropical Flowers an the butterflies are from the Spring Mix Stamp TV Kit.

  25. I love both cards! I can especially see how the image and colors in the first card represent "My Fair Lady". (I love that movie, too!) I love the second card just as much.

    How did you make the flower on the first card? I'd love to know what type of paper you used, too.

    Thanks!
