Pleasantville

Good day to everyone,

Today starts a new challenge at The Male Room. This one was... well... challenging. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
The umbrellas were stamped on black cardstock, embossed using white powder, and then colored with PrismaColor pencils.


Okay I know it says 'television' but I thought of the movies instead. I kept going back to this movie and couldn't shake it. The movie I am referring to is called 'Pleasantville'.

Here is the movie trailer for 
'Pleasantville'

The movie is based on a 1950's sitcom when two siblings are brought into the show using the remote control. The addition of these two sparks a movement of curiosity, drama, and self-awareness throughout the town. It then slowly but surely the town and its residents turn into color.

A bit of color surrounded by grays, black, and white.
Like the movie, things slowly start to change to color.
The sentiment is very fitting for this card.
The residents get curious and start
to wonder about the world and their dreams for the future.
This starts the color chain reaction.
Also, it makes a fantastic encouragement card. 
Well, that should do it for me. If you haven't already done so, hop on over to The Male Room to see other inspirational cards by our talented design team. It is surely going to spark some ideas and then join our challenge. Looking forward to seeing you!! Until then, take care and happy stamping!
