This month's color challenge over at Lindy's Stamp Gang was another beautiful palette of color. Purples are hard for me, mainly because I don't really have any. But that's what I love about Lindy's, I was able to blend colors to make something work perfectly.
I had an old mask that I wanted to re-do since day one and for some reason this color palette sparked an idea that just fell into place.
After peeling off all the old hot glue and fabric from the original mask I did a base layer of torn book pages and gel medium, this helped cover all the hot glue residue I couldn't get off. Over that I used a Crafter's Workshop harlequin stencil and light modeling paste. While the paste was still wet I added Lindy's embossing powder in Midnight Ruby. I let the paste dry overnight then heat embossed the powder.
I used the same colors on some prima leaves then inked the edges with an eggplant chalk ink. I just used the Cranberry mist on a feather spray that I salvaged from the original mask. The gems were also salvaged from the original mask. The flower is a Maya Road that matched perfectly.
This time I am much happier with how my mask turned out and have no intentions of another re-do!
