Witches Mask

Well, a witch can’t go to the ball with just fancy shoes, she also needs a mask.  If you missed the post on the shoes click here. 
The base of the mask is made of layers of cardstock embellished with Glitter Art Institute’s glitter and Black Gala Glitz (shards of glass glitter and micro beads).  I attached stamped flourishes from Alpha Stamps that have been painted with metallic paints and Ranger Alcohol inks.
The bat wings are made from Fantasy Film and Fun Wire.  Fantasy Film does not come in dark colors so I used blank Ranger Alcohol ink to darken the film.  The wings are embellished with Glitter Art Institute’s Lavender Blue Gala Glitz (shards of glass glitter).
The stick is made from a wooden dowel to which I attached beaded trim and German Scrap.
