The Mask - but no Jim Carrey!

This is for the October Variety Swap over one Crafting Corner. This months theme is - masks!! My inspiration for this comes from Venice rather than halloween. I printed a template I found on t'net and transfered it onto mountboard. The black side is stamped with gold embossing powder, the white side with black. I added 2 gold bells for a bit of jingle, the black ribbon and flower is from an old bra. Does anyone else do that? Save bits from old underwear, clothes lol

I then attached it to an old garden cane which I painted with white acrylic paint and added some ribbon - eh voila!!

I wasnt sure how it would turn out but am quite pleased with it - it is my first attempt after all!!!

Have a fab evening whatever your up too
