I decided to make something very different for Graham this year and as we both love watching movies bought the Silver Screen pack from Nitwits. I am enjoying using these digi kits as a change from stamping and colouring which I still love of course.
I printed all the elements separately this time, fussy cutting and inking the edges. I cut two of the film reel to give it a bit more depth and raised some things on foam pads. The stars were cut using a punch. I remembered I had some film related charms and added the clapperboard charm with baker's twine.
I am really pleased with the black film strip. I used a Tim Holtz film strip die with acetate. The film strip imprinted on the acetate but didn't cut so I just had to cut the edges. I then coloured it on the underside with a black Copic pen.
Our plan for today is a trip into the city where we will get something tasty for dinner tonight from M&S. Have a wander and get a takeaway hot drink. That is the best we can do in lockdown. Our pub and Chinese don't deliver on Mondays so we did have an afternoon tea delivered last Saturday as a pre Birthday treat.
