Mardi Gras - maybe a little late?

Hi there,

As I mentioned previously we were having a Mardi Gras themed meal at work on Friday and home-made masks were required. So here is what I came up with:

I used these Christmas stamps - holly heat embossed with sea green WOW, and festive flourish with a bright blue embossing powder:
I was going to use the reindeer from the lower stamp set, but it was part of the bauble and I couldn't be bothered messing with it so went with two from the top set instead. I then added gold glitter glue around the eyes (after dropping the new and large bottle on the floor and splitting it right the way across!!!), before adding the feathers - which are from my pet birds (yes I realised this was the wrong way round to do things when I kept putting my fingers in the glitter glue - it was only because I dropped the bottle that I added the glue so soon!!). It went down well at the meal :)

I would like to enter this mask into the following challenges:
country view #32 Add some texture
papertake weeky All about the base
modsquad Flip Flop

Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy laughing at my misfortune with this creation :D

  1. What a super idea to require homemade masks. I bet there were some doozies??? Yours is beautiful, especially with the feathers! Very clever!! Great take on the challenge, thanks for playing along at Mod Squad this week!!!
