Creative Saturday Cinema Challenge #29 "To Catch A Thief"
I haven't seen this movie in ages but had to try out an idea nevertheless..... When you're owned by a couple of cats, what else comes to mind but a cat burglar? The brief was to use layers to represent the layers of meaning in the movie, so I did my best. The base is my usual white CS, topped first with a piece of reversible DP from Paper Chic. I coloured the edges a little to highlight them because the contrast didn't show up too well when photographed. Next came the dusky rose satin paper strips from the busy room boxes, ditto the wisp of black suede from which I cut the cat shape. I added a length of black satin ribbon to ground him and also provide more of a table from which that sneaky cat is trying to help himself to a diamond or pearl or two. Those sparklers are from Creative Charms. The sentiment seemed appropriate with its allusion to living more than once (but not 9 times), and is from the new SU Fifth Avenue Florals. What do you think?
