Shabby Decadence!

Hello and welcome, lovey to see you here today. It's time for another challenge at
 Make My Monday. This week our hostess Jan would like to see:
Anything but a Card
I've chosen to show you the canvass I made for my local craft shop exhibition Celebrating Diversity showcased in July and still ongoing.. The theme this year was Masquerade!
I named my canvas....  Shabby Decadence!
I only have one photograph because as usual my entry was last minute and I dashed it off to The Cubby Hole forgetting to take photographs !
 I took this one on the opening night of the exhibition after a couple of glasses of red wine!..   Good fun had by all!
 I covered the base with a couple of coats or so of Gesso added dimension with various stencils using home made texture paste (thank you Carol of Cubby Hole fame for the workshop)The stamps are from Tim Holtz and Chocolate Baroque stamped in gold and black and layered. Black and gold lace, black, gold and white embossing powder.
I wish I'd mounted the whole canvas onto a slightly lager board in/painted black or something to give it a black outline but as previously stated I only just made the deadline.... by a whisper!
 The design team at MMM look forward to seeing what you come up with... we know you will show us some delightful objects etc.
Thank you for looking and commenting... appreciated more than you know :))
