Halloween Masks

I supervised a free make and take mask workshop on Saturday morning at the Your Maine Stamper Halloween Bash!  Here are the samples I made.  (I apologize for the yucky colors--something is definitely wrong with my camera!  Anything pink is dark red, the yellows should be oranges, navy blue is black.  I think the battery is dying.)

I found all of the templates free online--just Google "Halloween mask templates".  Print out your template, cut it out, and trace it on a subtle printed paper. Select the stamps you want to use, ink them up with VersaFine Jet Black ink, and dust them with clear embossing powder.  Heat to set the images.  I added some color with Memento markers (moons, pumpkin, spider bodies, chairseat, etc.)  You can even get fancier with decorating the masks depending on what you have to work with--feathers, sequins, glitter glue, rhinestones, flowers, whatever!  I plan to use some Glossy Accents on the spider bodies to make them more 3-D.  I mounted all of my masks on black paper and plan to use them as wall decor or I may incorporate them into a banner to string around a window.

I sure hope you post how to make a Batman mask the next time around for me to make some for my nephews who already have their Batman costumes.
