Willy Wonka Meets Lawn Fawn

One of my favorite movie scenes of all times is the imagination room in Willy Wonka's factory!  Thinking about the current Lawnfawnatics challenge brought it to mind, and here's my card:

I wasn't sure if I could really do that scene justice on a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card, but it gives the feel of the room anyway.  I watched clips of the movie to get some ideas.  The scene is a mixture of industrial factory, outdoor garden, and giant candy!  The windows are similar to the factory where it was filmed, and of course it needed a chocolate river.  I have it at a distance and it bubbles up at its bank.  Mr. Wonka is holding a buttercup and saucer like in the movie, and candy is hanging in the trees.  So many more things could be added, like Oompa Loompas and a pipe to suck up Augustus Gloop, but I didn't want the scene to get too heavy.  The wall, walkways, and grassy areas are Copic marker.

  12. Oh my goodness, Kara ... one of my most favourite ever books (it's that chocolate river!) ... and I love your beautifully detailed and faithful Chocolate Factory scene much more than the film or the remake ... it's spectacular ... a work of art! My apologies for not commenting on all your recent cards ... we've just got back online this afternoon and I'm playing catch up ... it's going to take a while after almost a week without internet! Saving your whirled peas video for when I can take the time to linger over it! Big hugs, Anita :)
