Masquerade Mojo

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch. I combined my card with Verve's current Black, White & Glam inspiration challenge.

I started by making the tag shape.  It uses a little scallop topper die included in a new die set that Verve will be releasing this Friday along with a couple new stamp sets. I stenciled the crumb cake tag with white paint and the crackle layering stencil, let it dry and then stenciled again with a little antique linen distress ink.  The edges of the tag are brushed with Versamark ink, then I embossed with gold embossing powder.  I added the Boo in black molding paste using a Halloween layering stencil, then got to work making the mask.

The mask from Masquerade is embossed in gold on black cardstock, then cut with the coordinating Mask Die Set.  I embossed a streak of cardstock with the gold and cut the handle with the coordinating die for the golden handle.  The feathers are embossed in gold and then hand cut.  The harlequin paper is from a BoBunny collection and I added a die cut made with the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set for a gold accent down the side.  The black cardstock is embossed with the stars & swirls embossing folder and I layered it onto a white card base that I embossed all of the edges in gold with. Finished off with some ribbon, cording and a black button for my tag topper.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous week.  Be sure to check back on Thursday for the first of our New Release Spotlight Hops!
