Challenge #123 - Based on a movie

WE HAVE A DT CALL ON UNTIL 31ST JULY.  HOP OVER AND HAVE A LOOK AT THE DETAILS.  
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.

Wow, there are a lot of occasions out there and I hope the recipients of the beautiful cards and project you showed us all had or will have a great day.  As usual the Winner and Top 3 will be announced next week when our DT member has had time to go though all the wonderful projects that followed the rules.

This challenge we have a wonderful sponsor with Lizzy Love from
Lizzy has always loved the stranger, quirkier side of life and that is exactly what she loves to create. Her art described as a perfect combination of sweet and sour that glitters up the grunge! As a lover of all things whimsical, kawaii and creepy cute, she throws in some Pastel Goth with a touch of glam, punk & rockabilly pinup!
She has certainly never been a mainstream type of girl and definitely won't fit into your stereotypical cookie cutter artists role;  but rather she finds beauty in the truly unique, big eyed creepy little cuties with a bittersweet sadness. She is never truly happier then when she is in her art studio painting or sewing, creating a whimsical dream world easily recognizable as her signature style of creepy yet cute, all the way from the haunting darkness to the rainbowtastic, Lizzy’s creations are lovingly sprinkled with a heartbreaking sweetness.
Growing up a child of the 80's, pop rocks princess, with an extreme fondness for anything candy coated, Kawaii Kitten & Ziggy Stardust, all of which had a major influence in the work that she is creating today.  Lizzy employs many different mediums when she creates, anything from mixed media painting to sewing with many different textiles, the end result always being the same;  A whimsical dream world filled with big eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes.

Prize:  3 image of your choice from the store

Theme:  based on a movie

Our fabulous DT have excelled themselves with their projects for this challenge.  The imagination that has gone into them is awesome and I hope you will hop over to their blogs to leave them some love and see their other wonderful project.  As usual click on their name to visit their blog and click on the title to go to the Oddball Art Co store.
