Art Deco Mask

This week over at One Powerful Hour the theme is...

Carnival/Mardi Gras

I came up with the idea for this week's theme when Alpha Stamps revealed their newest swap. A mini mask swap. The size of this piece believe it or not is ATC size, well not counting the petals, just the mask part. Super small and tons of fun to work on.

When I was little we lived in Spain and one year my parents took us to Venice. I have always remembered all the fabulous, artistic costumes that they wore and have tried to create my very own here.

I used one of the quilt block stamps from Repeat Impressions over and over to create the pattern on the mask. Colored it with colored pencils. The black petals are from a gigantic silk flower that screamed at me to be used the second I walked into Michael's for just this project. As finishing touches I added Rhinestones and glitter.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for looking.
