I used the traditional colours of purple, green and gold. The stamp set comes with lots of tiny elements (stars, feathers, diamonds etc) so I loaded them all onto my stamp platform and covered them in gold embossing powder. I then inked over the top with distress ink. I stamped the mask and the sentiment in the same way and used purple colours on that before cutting it out and mounting it on my background. Then I added my sentiment and a few 'Dame Edna' touches. Voila! Did you know that Mardis Gras is actually French for 'fat Tuesday'. Don't say my blog isn't educational. You'll be thanking me when that one comes up on Pointless.
Pop over and join the fun. We do love to see what you come up with.
Thanks for reading.
