Eeeeeekkkkkkkkk! I am sooooo much in LOVE with this card! Ok, so first off, I am back for week 2 Guesting with the fabulous ladies at 4 Crafty Chicks! This week's hostess is Nance, and her challenge is Mardi Gras/Party!! I have to admit at first I was stumped! I mean, there's the obvious colors then I was stuck… Well, the little cutie poppin' the bubbly is Anniversary Winnie (Polkadoodles), and she's kinda perfect for this theme.
For the background panel I had loads of fun!!!! I did some smooshing with a few Distress Inks. I did NOT use Oxides for this as I wanted it brighter and not "muddled" looking. Wilted Violet, Mustard Seed, and Lucky Clover were perfect Mardi Gras colors!!! Then I used a Tim Holtz Mixed Media die, and carefully saved each of those pieces cut out, then I ran the die through twice more giving myself 2 more "sets" of those shapes. I stacked the colored pieces on the top, which gave me this fun popped up look! Finally I just added a few sequins and a couple of bows on the top. I am really, really happy with how this turned out! Well that's it for me, I hope you'll joins and play along with this really great challenge!!! Thanks Nance for the mojo boost!!
