Allsorts - Anything but a card


You might know that Masks are very popular around here! Luckly friends seem to like to re-home them, Carol is going to have this one. We went shopping for the blank several weeks ago now and it turned out she quite fancied a cat face, today was the first time I've had to see what i could make of it.

Gesso base, blue and silver acrylic paint, touches of pink! oversprayed with Pearl and Midnight blue glimmer mists. Altered glue so excited it came off the plastic in one piece and fitted round the face perfectly. Silver spray and shine wire whiskers and then gilding flakes on the altered glue, self adhesive gems around the eye sockets. The holes for the acrylic thread for hanging it up filled on one side with a gem filled brad and on the other with fibers a la Jack sparrow.

As its not a card! thought it fitted with the Allsorts challange which is anything but a card.
