The challenge at CRAFT is masks. Now I have lots of masks for inking but while I've been sorting my craft room, I came across this stencil by Joy! I think I bought it on my first visit to Netherlands quite a few years ago and it has never been out of the packet. I put it through the Cuttlebug to emboss it and then pricked the holes and cut it out. I've sewn it with red metallic thread. The image stamp is by Darkroom Door from the Venetian Vol 2 set. I've stamped it in Versamark and used Cosmic Shimmer Bronze Lustre embossing crystals. I tried several embossing powders and didn't like the effect but I loved this one. I love this sentiment and it's from the same Darkroom Door set but embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Burnt Red Lustre powder to keep the detail. Both of these powders leave a lovely shimmer on the non embossed parts but it doesn't really show in the photographs. A layer of red and black card and it's finished just in time for the challenge.
