I chose Feathers
My image is a smeared ink image you can find at http://www.smearedink.com/
The Venice Digi set..I printed the mask 8x 10 and colored with one of my first Prismacolor markers I have ever owned Mahogany Red and I used my studio G glitter (black) and Tim Holtz Black diamond.. I put two coats on the black areas with the glitter. It took about two hours to completely dry I did not use a heat tool.
A mask was a new idea and something I have only made one before...and it was dangerously flimsy with out adding the feathers so I asked My fellow DT friends how would they do this...LB is such a awesome friend and artist (her blog is on my side bar in one of my older hops)..she instructed me to skan and print out a duplicate of what I had made and the glue the feathers on black paper with a hot glue gun... so basically there are three layers to the mask.
I added the beads to the front piece and ribbon to both sides.
I hope you like my mask.
Thank you for stopping in and I would love to hear what you think.

and Smudgy Antics new challenge a altered box.
I found a small box at a thrift store yesterday a sickly lavender probably about ten years old. Paid a dollar for it.
I started with the bottom of the box and painted with black acrylic and then covered it with duncan acrylic rose gloss
I used a rose stamp with staz in jet black ink and stamped the bottom and let dry.
I then covered with Ranger glossy accents and then used a heat gun to add UTEE giving it a old worn effect.
The feet are Tim Holtz ideology.
I took rose tissue paper and tore it into pieces glued them into the inside of the bos and then used modge podge ..i touched up with some black ink and and black acrylic and then mod podged again.
The mask was printed out as a 4x6 cut and trimmed I placed card board underneath to lift it up and red net under that to give a red glow in the mouth and eyes.The mask was painted with Tim Holtz metallic dabber tarnished brass and acrylic black.
Thanks for looking and I really hope you join our challenge..have fun with looking forward to your project.
