Uh-Oh! Hold on to your Mardi Gras beads. It looks like Fred is up to no good. LOL I don't know why she is surprised. Fred and Beulah have been married for many years. She knows how he gets when he's had too much to drink. You can't take him anywhere. LOL
This ATC was created for the March Challenge over at Viva Las Vegas Stamps. The inspiration board is filled with colors and whimsical prompts to get you motivated.
The green color for March immediately made me think of Mardi Gras. I chose 3 fun stamps from VLVS.
Leopard Spandex Lady was colored with Prisma Color pencils and blended with Gamsol. She wears a sparkly tiara (green and purple Stickles.) I created her Mardi Gras beads using a piece of green ball chain from my stash.
Flasher Fred is stamped twice - once on white cardstock and again on green scrapbook paper. His coat is carefully cut and paper-pieced on top to give him a green coat with a stylish pattern. His flesh was colored with Prisma Colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. If you look closely, you will see his teensy mustache.
He grabbed some blue Mardi Gras beads when I wasn't looking - naughty boy. LOL
I was able to incorporate several of the challenge prompts into this piece:
