Movie mania

The current Lost Coast challenge has us focusing on the wonderful world of the cinema with Movie Mania.

My first idea was to turn the Showgirls stamp into a whole row with a bit of masking (to represent the movie A Chorus Line) but Riet beat me to the same idea and I didn't want to look like a copycat! I went through several other ideas (Gnomeo and Juliet, anyone?) but then another idea for the same stamp popped in to my head. Can you spot the movie reference?

Using some dragonfly wings (and a piece of acetate to reverse them since they pointed the wrong way) I've transformed the girls into Absinthe fairies and given them extra Parisian flavour with a misty Eiffel Tower in the background. There's some fairy sparkle on wings and costume accents, courtesy of Spica pens.

Great card. I am afraid I miss the reference but when you tell me will think "of course!". Nice coloring. I esp like the misty Eifel. Gives it a sense of depth. :)
