Oompa Loompa Ian




Well, this is the first week that I decided to play along with the Cinema Saturday Challenge.
I've never played before but I was turned on to this site by my friend, Libby! She loves to play and her cards are awesome!! Anyway, I saw that the challenge this week was to use bright colors based on the movies Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I knew what stamp I wanted to try out, so I just needed to refresh my memory and rewatch these movies. Luckily, we own them both so I put in the original first and then followed it up with the Johnny Depp version. I find that both of these movies are awesome visually, but boy do I remember having bad dreams about a little girl blowing up into a huge blueberry and being rolled out of the room! I don't have those nightmares anymore!! I chose to use Happy Chef Ian from the Greeting Farm as my stamped image and afeter watching both movies I decided to color him as an original Oompa Loompa! I love how he turned out with the orange skin and green hair. Also, in honor of Libby, I chose to use some polka dots in the background. What do you think? I think he came together nicely. I know you probably can't tell but some of the candy is pop dotted to add dimension. Hopefully you can tell what he is! I want to thank the wonderful ladies who host this challenge every week and let them know their hints are so hard but so much fun to try to guess.
Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Stampin' Up!, Studio G
Inks: Adirondack Pitch Black, Stazon Pumpkin
Papers: Basic Grey, Bazzill
Accessories: buckle, ribbons, copics for coloring

This is soooo cute and fun Tina!!! Yay, you played! I'm not sure I'm going to get to this week, but now I'm feeling even more urge to. :-) I just LOVE that chef Ian, he's on my wishlist! Making him an oompa loompa is soooo fun, and I can totally tell those gumdrops are popped up, great touch! Thanks so much for mentioning me, and for using polka dots - always a great move in my book, LOL!!
