Hi there, we're celebrating Mardi Gras at Rainbow Lady's Challenge this week!
I've struggled to get a decent pic of my project as it is seriously sparkly lol. I made the background using radiant rain paint dabbers, black crackle paint and stickles and matted it on purple glitter card.
It looks much nicer in real life honest :-)
The image is a stamp from Debbi Moore, coloured with promarkers and die cut with a nestie. I created a faux nestie from more glitter card and then disaster struck ... i used silicone glue from Wilkinsons to attache the image as dst never seems to stick properly to glitter card and the blinking stuff showed through!!! EEEEEk, panic set in but i managed to hide the marks with some diecut swirly bits lol. I've added ribbon and lace from my stash and made a couple of hat pins from headpins and black pearls and purple crystal beads. To finish off I made some faux black pearls with black cosmic shimmer glue for the corners
