TBD Challenge #13--The Big Fish

This week's challenge at Burtonesque Doll blog was to create a scene out of the movie Big Fish. We are being sponsored by Smeared and Smudged. They are an edgy wild and very distink kind of rubbah....but very fun too.....Below I used the fortune teller digi, the mermaid and the quote (not for the timid).....they are on the carnival set other than the fortune teller digi. That is separate.............ENJOY!!!!!!!

here's the prize for one lucky entry over at TBD for this week's challenge...isn't this such a great stamp set...and you also get the fortune teller digi that I used........so come on over and play along----good luck!!!!

...................................................................................................................................

here's the front of the card. I made this into a flip card. Meaning there's no opening for an inside. Just front and back. Well and a tag that pulls up with a front and back. When I think of carnivals, I can remember hearing a mans voice saying, step right up and see blah blah blah....hence the sign on right side of card....lol.....so you pay to go in and then you would have a curtain--- the pull up tag--and then it would get pulled up to reveal what's behind it.....lol....that's where the thinking came from for this card....I hand drew the tent and once again bowed out the top portion of it....not to mention I bowed out the top and bottom borders for added dimension. ..I added snaps (grocery store) at the top and in the center of the flower (Holtz) and some bling (Prima).......

I thought this would make for a great guy card.....hubby.........I'm sorry...I just have to laugh...it so reminds me of my husband when we're at the beach.......always got one eye on the road and the other on the bikini's....lol....hense, the made ya look saying..... here's the card revealing the mermaid....it's not what a man would hope to see when the curtains went up.....I'm so mean, aren't I.....just have to keep him in check sometimes....lol....we have a weird sense of humor over here...sorry..... and here's the tag outside totally......you can write on front and back of the tag.... here's the backside of the card....now I need to make an envie for this..... ........................................................................................ Well thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you over at TBD and see what the rest of the dolls did for the challenge......and don't forget to get yourself some of those really cool stamps at Smeared Ink.... ..................stop back by later, I'll have my Paper Take Weekly challenge up.......Hugs from Charm City...................................

Well if you have a weird sense of humor, then so do I. Cause your humor has always been perfect to me! And I ADORE, and I do mean ADORE this card!!! You took me right back to the days of the fair when I would walk the Midway all the barkers would be out calling the people to come see the bearded lady, and the one legged monster, and so on and so on. Once I got old enough to pay for a couple of them to satisfy my curiosity, I found out what a sham they were. But it sure was fun to wonder and try to peer behind the curtains from the outside when we were young. LOL! Thanks so much fortaking me down memory lane with your fabulously amazing card!!!!
hugs!
