Less is More week 115-one layer

Well here we are again at Less is More with the dreaded "one layer" challenge only this time there's an evil twist!! Chrissie and Jen have surpassed themselves with this one, here's what they want:

This week we have a fun challenge for you.
It must be 

The subject of your cards this time should be inspired by
Any film will do, but preferably one that most people will have heard of.
We'd obviously like you to tell us the title of your film and not keep us guessing.

I had several ideas but they didn't look right as a card and eventually this is what I came up with:

My husband got it right away but his mind isn't always in tune with everyone else:)
 It's A Clockwork Orange, a Stanley Kubrick film starring Malcolm McDowell and released in 1971. I don't think I have to explain how I created it but the stamp is an old freebie from Craft Stamper. Oh just to say that to get the blank clock face I used the image on the acetate panel it came with, cut out the centre and placed it in the centre of the stamp before I inked it.

I made one more card  using a freebie from a Creativity magazine and the crown is one of the stamps that came with the Anna Griffin self inking stamper. Can you guess the film this time?

It's The Queen starring Helen Mirren, released in 2006.

I'd just like to welcome Bev as a new follower and thanks to anyone else that takes the time to visit and hopefully leaves some feedback:)

ps: just found out that Create & Craft is starting on Virgin tomorrow, hooray!! 748 if anyone's interested:)

Two fab cards, Val. I never saw the film 'Clockwork Orange', but I did hear a lot about it, so I knew straight away what your first card symbolised. Love the crown on your 'The Queen' card x
