Mask

It is time to post another another dictionary page.  The Craft Barn has chosen the letter M but with a twist.  This time it is "Ma through Me".  I chose the word MASK.


The dictionary I am using is so old that the paper is very fragile -- I have to be careful and they really want to curl up thus the clothes pins on the four corners.  I tried a metal clip but they tend to tear the paper.



I used a digital stamp called MIDNIGHT WARRIOR by the artist Sara Burrier.  I think she is gorgeous. So she became the inspiration for my work mask.   Please visit the Craft Barn to see all the wonderful dictionary pages.

Challenge entered -  The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - the letter M - Ma through M

I have to admit I love these pages - learned a lot and especially what not to do !   I really appreciate you taking the time to visit my creative endeavors and all your comments make my heart smile (well as long as they are nice!)

Fabulous Sandy!! You're right, she is beautiful and you colored her to perfection. Hey I think great minds think alike! LOL!

Sandy, that is most certainly a gorgeous stamp. Perfect for MASK! And making her the moonlight warrior adds to her beauty and mysteriousness. Your dictionary does look somewhat fragile...all the better, I think!

Oh wow Sandy... this is stunning! Fabulous colouring on this pretty image. I can't believe you were able to cut this out like you did... man, those twigs must have taken forever. Very cool how you left the 'mask' on the page uncoloured and outlined. I love this!

I am looking at the detail on this image and I am impressed with all the cutting of this you did and the beautiful night sky with the full moon shining on her. The eyes are gorgeous with the black lines of the mask and the colors of her skin and shadows. What a terrific and unique word to choose and the two pair perfectly together. Another great dictionary page Sandy!!
