Anything But Cute Challenge #4 "Making Magic"

Hello everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at Anything But Cute Mixed Media Challenge Blog and our dear Georgie is the host this month. For this challenge, Georgie would like you to create a magical mixed media project strongly inspired by the colors and textures of the images in the mood board.


I was very much inspired by everything but had to limit my inspiration to the face covered with gold and the moss in the woods and have come up with this card:


Below you'll see how it all started and progressed...I won't write much...





And now few more pics of the finished card...







The challenge is open til September 4th. I would love to see what inspired you from the mood board :)
I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...

  12. Wow! How does one even respond to this masterpiece?! Samra, your take on this stunning mood board is stunning! The glass glitter swirl atop the mask is so beautiful and that moss creates the most enchanting forest scene. The sentiment is indeed magical and I love how you matched it back to the mask. This would be the most amazing invitation for a masquerade ball! :o) Brilliant creation!
