Challenge deadline: Thursday, November 5.

I created a fun mixed media tag for this inspiration challenge using the fabulous Masquerade stamp set and matching dies!


I started with a tag from Ranger and then applied a layer of black gesso. After letting that dry, I added white modeling past through a stencil and let that dry, then rubbed a layer of gold Texture Effects. After adding my layers, that part of the tag kind of got hidden which makes me sad, haha!

I cut the mask and handle out with the Mask dies, and then embossed the mask with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment on a gold tag in black Stazon and to finish up added some cheese cloth under the sentiment tag piece, added some Golden Glam sequins, and a twine bow!
