Grateful Canvas - Scrap Around The World

Hello! Today it's time for challenge ten at Scrap Around The World! This time the challenge is hosted by Design Team member Christin Grønnslett aka Umenorskan from Norway!

Christin created a lovely Valentine style mood board with a modern twist. As always, you can interpret the mood board in any way you like, using one image, several of them, all of them or even just one aspect of an image, using any colors! The deadline for this challenge is Friday 28th February 2014.

To be eligible for judging you need to follow the SATW rules found here, which include for example sharing the mood board image and mentioning how you were inspired by our mood board. If you wish to receive comments from the DT, then please turn the word verification off. 

The first reveal of the challenge went live on the 1st of February and I belong to the second reveal team. So I'm sharing my piece today.

I created a canvas this time using the color scheme as my starting point. I also was inspired by the golden details in the board and added gold to my project in several ways. I also found the icing on the cake inspirational and used gesso through a stencil to create texture to my canvas. 

What would a challenge be without prizes? These all include free shipping, too!
