Let's Go to the Movies!

It's time for another Fussy and Fancy Challenge! I am so excited!! I love our theme for Challenge 5... Movies. One of my favorite movies (and plays) is The Phantom of the Opera. I've seen the play three times when it was out here in LA. Once with the original Phantom, Michael Crawford. The second time I saw it, I was able to meet Davis Gains, who played the Phantom. Then a couple of years ago, I took my husband to see this amazing play. I look forward to the day I can take my kids and they can share in my little obsession:)



My card was made from paper scraps.




The sentiment is one of my favorite songs from the first act. I wrote it out with a white gel pen and sponged the edges with white ink.




All the embellishments I found in my collection of drawers!



I drew the mask and blended the pencil to get the shading right. I sponged the edges with black ink, which really adds to the drama.



Hope you enjoyed my little creation. Thanks for stopping by!

Now I need to enter this into some challenges!

  1. Wow Krista this is awesome, the mask is perfect. I've seen it live twice with the hubby, and he saw it with Michael Crawford many moons ago. We have seen the movie a few times as well, so we share your love of Phantom.

  2. Hi Krista
    WOW! This is an amazing creation. I was wondering where you got the mask from, then read that you had drawn it, you are such a talented lady. Love the colour combo too.
