Cinema Saturday #51 - "All About Eve" Challenge - Part One

I had never seen, or even heard of the movie, "All About Eve" - but the Cinema Saturday blog had a YouTube link to watch it (in 13 parts! lol) - so I did! It was an enjoyable movie. (The blog also has a link to the movie story summary if you want to check it out.) The second part of the challenge was to include bling in the design - my first thought,of course, was GLITTER!

This design was my first inspiration from the movie as the main character, Eve, was 'masquerading' as someone she was not. She was tempted by the allure of theatre acting, and did whatever it took to make her dream come true. Thus the apple symbol on the mask - for Eve and her temptation. Well, *I* thought it was clever anyway! :) I used SU! Basic Grey and SU! Textured Basic Black card stock. And I had fun creating the mask out of the largest of the Nestabilities Labels Four set, SU Small Oval Punch and Paper Snips with Two Way Glue Pen and pewter glitter. The apple image is from the reitred SU! stamp set Mini Medley, covered in red glitter. The sentiment is from the SU! stamp set Warm Words, stamped in Real Red on the SU! Modern Label Punch and highlighted in Lipstick Spica Glitter Pen. ENJOY!

P.S. I forgot to add that I chose the gray/pewter color - because I felt Eve lived in gray, shadowy areas while everyone else lived in black and white.
