Mardi Gras


Well, for  this card, I did  not reach out for any stamps. Its good to try something different for a change.
When I read that the  Rainbow Ladys new challenge  No192 was Mardi Gras, I reached for my new Debbie Moore Stamping magazine and used some of the papers  etc that came with it.
The gold miri  was embossed then rubbed over with sandpaper to age it a little.
I used vintage photo distress inks to tone the colours down and added some pearls, gems, glitter and feathers.
Also used was some distress embossing power at the edges of the shaped layer.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.

  23. A lovely card but you didn't say which Cd you used to qualify for our challenge. I am not sure if all Debbie Moores magazines come with CD's.
