The Masquerade Ball.... For Creative Expressions

For my Creative Expressions DT project this week, I've chosen to showcase a stamp from the Umount Masquerade plate . Still trying to keep up with my Winter themes, I've created an invitation to an imaginary ball....
I made the background using Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and Picket Fence Distress Stain. Smooshed onto a craft mat, then spritzed with water! I dipped and swirled the cardstock in the mixture, then dried it off. Lots of splats of both the silver and white, and I also overstamped the background with the snowflake stamp from the Tim Holtz Christmas Time Stamp Set ........

The mask itself, was stamped onto white card, and silver embossed. Cut out, then adhered to a bamboo skewer that I'd painted silver and white! I Added some crystals on twisted silver wire behind the mask to give that little extra bling!
I had fun with this, hope you like it!!!
Love Trish xx
