mask it for creative expression DT make

so it is Thursday and time for a creative expressions Dt make,
 so another month sees some new new stamps to play with
 and today I have played with the masquerade set,
 so here is my make
 this is different for me!
I started by covering a tag with tissue tape, and
smooshing with picket fence ..
then drying and finally
I added some feathers embossed..
the mask was stamped and embossed using white embossing powder
the cut out..i painted in the gaps in brushed pewter stain
and added liquid pearl pearls..
the handle is a coffee stirrer..
would with tissue tape,
then picket fence..
then lightly coated with glue and seal and ...you have guessed
I love it!! and still lots left!!
then some twirls of wire added
the card was stamped in the corners with the feathers
and embossed with white
and then edged in black soot distress ink
to complete some seam binding,,love this too!!
coloured with distress stains
and some crochet lace
also coloured with stain
a really different make for me..
let me know what you think..
thanks to everyone who stops by
to see what the rest of the team have made ..see sidebar here
have a fun and inky day!

  7. Hi Trace, I like this a lot. Very elegant adult type of tag. The mask is gorgeous and the adaptation of the stick and wire is wonderful. You have cut out the eye shapes perfectly. Love how you've done the tissue tape too. Really beautful make. Nicola x

  8. It is different for you Trace but it is stunning in it's simplicity. That mask is gorgeous and love the twiddly bits of wire....... Hugs, Anne x

  9. Its fabulous, love the mask and its trimmings.

  10. Love this colour combo and the TT backround with this stamp,fab Trace. x

  11. Wonderful.It fits perfectly to the festive season.

  12. Wonderful tag-yet another terrific way to use wire

    Love Chrissie xx

  13. One word for this - inspiring. Love the inner tag, the background tag, the embossing, the choice of soft shades, the mask embellishment and the glitter. Beautiful and very romantic. Thanks for sharing this wonder. Hugs, Jenny x

  14. So different for you but a beautiful make Trace. I love the tissue background (must have a go at that!). The mask is superb from the painted metallic distress to the coffee stirer handle which looks great after its makeover! Strangely, some of these found their way into my handbag in Cafe Nero the other day - must have fallen in by accident!
    You need to make some more with these stamps - they have come to life with your special touch!
    I'll stop talking now don't worry!

  15. This tag is very pretty Trace and the embossed mask is gorgeous. Great idea for the coffee stirer handle.
