The Masquerade Ball

Hi guys, just a quick post as I had a couple of days in between Christmas and New Year when hubby was working, so a perfect time to craft!!!! lol
I had this mad idea to make a mask for some strange reason as I am not doing anything for New Year as again hubby is working, but I don't know about you if I get an idea in my head it doesn't like going away, he he

Of course taking a photo of it was difficult too, so please excuse the stand!!!!
I got the mask design off the Silhouette site and even though I hadn't really any perfect papers for it either, here it is, 
The mask has a flourish stamp by Indigoblu stamped on one corner then I added a few micro beads onto the top here and there,
I used some feathers and a large flower from my stash and painted a damask straw with my black copic pen for the wand,

I added some black gems and crystal ones too onto the mask here and there,
 and the extra  top section has mega flakes on,
On the other side i used some ribbon (hanging ties) cut from a new piece of clothing, so it even has recycling too, lol
