I have a confession to make. I have only read the book once (in grade school because I had to) and I've only watched the movie once. The reason for my lack of emersion has always been due to the very apparent struggle between dark and light, good vs. evil. Don't laugh, but this children's book actually caused me a lot of anxiety while I was reading it. It seemed to take forever to get to a part in the book where there was some kind of hope (in the form of Aslan). At the time I was reading it, I believe I was 10, I didn't catch the religious aspects or even the source of my anxiety. What I did know was that Narnia was not a place that I wanted to escape to but to escape from.
Thankfully this Walt Disney movie version came along. The cinematography is breathtaking and they did such a great job of portraying the visual aspects of dark vs. light. Also being nearly 20 years older and watching this I was able to identify the emotions I was feeling. Apprehension is a whole lot easier to deal with during a 2 hour movie than the hours it took me to read the book as a child.
Anyhow, there's the background now here's my card. I knew I had to interpret the contrast of dark and light. So I sponged black ink on a 3.5 x 5 piece of acetate. Stamped the "darkest moments" sentiment from the Hard to Say stamp set with White craft ink and clear embossed to prevent smudging. Make sure not to overheat your acetate...it will warp.
The acetate was attached to the top of the card base using Vellum tape. Using my favourite Delight in Life stamp set (retired) I made a bright and cheerful scene on the card base and did the same in the inside adding glitter to the flower centers and the rest of the sentiment.
It is friends, faith and family that give us hope in our darkest moments isn't it? Without them we are alone as Edmund discovered during his journey in Narnia.
