Myth and Magic at Corrosive challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.  It is going by far too quickly for my liking lol.
Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Corrosive Challenges.  Our fab sponsor for the month of September is Delicious Doodles.  The prize up for grabs is 4 digis of the winners choice.
Many of the images available at Delicious Doodles are just perfect for this fortnight's challenge theme which is:
Myth and Magic
Just create a mythical or magical themed project.  So bring out those fairies, wizards, dragons etc.  We would like to see them all.

Here is my mythical creation for you using an image from Delicious Doodles.

I decided to create a black and white card leaving the image uncoloured.  I printed the image onto photographic paper, cut it out using one of my dies and added black gems around the outside.  I already had the card blank (not sure what shape it is as I bought it many months ago from a craft show).  I used black card and white glitter card for the background.  The mushroom stamp is a Molly Blooms one which was stamped onto black card with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The sentiments (Creative Expressions) were done in the same way.  A black feather, some butterfly toppers and a flower topper finished the card.

Here is another angle where you might see the glitter better.

So head on over to Corrosive Challenges and check out the awesome creations from the design team.  Such a talented bunch of peeps.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Poodles Parlour - Winged Things
MAWTT - Flying high
Allsorts - Anything but square
Catch the Bug - Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - Lets sparkle
Simon Says - Anything goes
Stamp n Doodle - A touch of sparkle
The Crafty Pad - Anything but square
A Blog Named Hero - Whos the Boss (use embossing - mushrooms and sentiments)
OSAAT - Use a digi

Thanks for popping by and look forward to seeing all your mythical and magical creations.
