Happy February everyone! It's Kim here today sharing my vintage style mask just in time for Mardi Gras! As many of you know it is that time of year again and Gina challenged the Design Team to create something for Mardi Gras, featuring her newly designs Masks from the Mask Shape Set, which you can find in the store. I chose to go a more Vintage look, with a nod to Parisian style, which would honor the French connection to Mardi Gras. I attached a small dowel and wrapped it in some white wired ribbon to give the mask a handle in which the user can hold it up to their face.
I have first painted the mask in white acrylic paint, then used some clear embossing powder, with a flourish stamp, then embossed it with some chunky white embossing powder. After that I layered on some vintage wedding appliques, which are loaded with bling and pearls. I added some pearls around the top of the eyes as well to complete that look.
Above here you can see I have also added some of Gina's Feathery Flourishes, embossing them with white and gold embossing powder. I then layered more lace on the side and a floral applique in a darker tan colour, then added a few cream roses to top it off.
At the top of the mask I have used some rosette trim and added more Venise Lace and another flower, you can also see a close up here of the Flourish. The photo Below shows a little gold cherub peeking out behind the roses and some pearl sprays and feathers finish it off nicely.
I hope you have enjoyed taking a peek at my mask today, thanks for stopping by!
