welcome to my last project for joy clair.
today i am showcasing the mardi gras stamp set.
ironically the sentiment i chose for my card is:
let the good times roll.
i haven't have a good time for a while now and for the same reasons i won't be able to stay.
it is so funny that unconsciously i chose this phrase. i sure will have to
"laissez les bons temps rouler"
these masks are so pretty. i used its digi dies to cut the masks. i then used an embossing pad to add gold embossing powder and glitter.
i used a pearlized cardstock for the card layers. the golden splashes were done with a gold acrylic paint and a cheap watercolor brush.
the black ink i used smeared a bit on the slick surface and it took a while to dry.
the tiny fleur de lis are also from the same stamp set. the stitched border was done with a fiskars paper punch.
i cut these pennants from a cricut cart and the tiny fleur de lis here are from a g-studio paper punch. i covered them with stickles.
the gold tone cs is from dcwv.
the other masks were not glued to the pennants and that is why the middle mask is crooked.
normally, i can't photograph purple well for whatever reason but today i did. lol. i couldn't chance to wait for another day. hehe.
the stamp set is so pretty.
here is some history info on mardi gras in case you are as curious as i am. i wish one day i could visit new orleans too, i have some friends who visit it often and they love it.
well, and this is it for today.
you guys take care and,
thanks for stopping by!
