Magic of Oz Plaque and Card

I have loved “The Wizard of Oz” for as long as I can remember. As a kid I watched it every year when it came on TV and have it on VHS, DVD and 75th Anniversary DVD and still watch it when it comes on cable!
When the book “Wicked” came out, read that, and have seen the musical of the same name. One of my BFFs and I share this addiction passion. Lucky her…she’s getting to see “Wicked” AGAIN!

When I found “The Magic of Oz” paper collection from Graphic 45, there was no question about getting it!  I bought the 8x8 pad and several 12x12 sheets.

No question I was making something with these papers for her birthday!
The plaque in the first picture was made using a panel of the 12x12 paper. It was perfect on its own so I Mod-Podged it to a tile of MDF. I painted the edges of the tile with some of the new Martha Stewart glitter paint ( I’m in LOVE!). The only embellishments I added were clear self adhesive rhinestones.

For the card, I cut out another panel from the 12x12 to use as the focal and again, this paper is so detailed I hesitated to do anything else and normally I’m a more is more kinda girl. I accented different parts with Stickles just to give it some dimension.
Used a sheet of the poppy paper from the pack ( did I mention all the papers are reversible? ) and dotted the centers of the poppies with more Stickles.

You can see the Stickles accents on the Lion’s snout, Scarecrow’s buttons and cheeks and the hem of Dorothy’s dress.

I found this paper too! My mom and I went to go see it when it was in town (couldn't resist buying a shirt: http://s1014.photobucket.com/albums/af270/envirocraft/?action=view&current=Wicked.jpg ) and bought this to scrapbook with: http://s1014.photobucket.com/albums/af270/envirocraft/?action=view&current=100_3028.jpg

This is so awesome! You're so crafty! I love this movie. Haven't read the book or Wicked yet. Nor have I seen Wicked. But I want to see it. I love musicals! The images look like illustrations from the book that I've seen online or somewhere. Very cool :)
