This card took a whole bunch of trials and errors - I wanted a many layered card, but it was just not working, so I decided on a "no layer" card! The outer portion of the mask and the feathers were embossed in gold, then I stamped the inner part of the mask in black. Since these are clear stamps the placement of the inner mask was super simple! I colored using Radiant Pearls - evergreen and amethyst colors - and this provides a nice shimmer. I then used glitter glue to go over the streamers to add more sparkle and dimension. "Carnavale" was stamped with marvy violet marker.
All stamps are from the Flourishes Mardi Gras Set.
And yes, those are real Mardi Gras beads caught from a Mardi Gras float!
