Mardi Gras

Rogue Redhead Designs     Carnival Dreams-New Release Stamp Set

Good Tuesday Morning--it's almost time to break out the party beads, crowns, and masks. Mardi Gras will be here soon. I think this card might be a good party invitation.
Carnival Dreams is one of two stamp sets released last week at Rogue Redhead Designs. There are 6 stamps plus 3 sentiment stamps for you to create with. 
I wanted something sparkly and special for this couple. The main colors of Mardi Gras are green, purple, gold.
I used Raisin, Bottle, and Gold alcohol inks on glossy card stock to create these backgrounds. You know how I love to outline, so I used a purple metallic marker and a gold Sharpie Paint pen to outline the oval and the rectangle. The label stack was created using a McGil Vintage Label punch and 2 Stampin' Up punches and metallic paper I had in my stash. The gold cord I attached to the oval with Scor-Tape (love that stuff, because you can tear it, and shape it). I colored the moon with a Clear Star gel pen, and her heart necklace with a purple Spica Glitter pen, and finished it off with the tiny flat gold beads. 
Our Rogue Crew are creating some really fabulous projects with the new releases and the oldies, but goodies. Hop over and check it out for some great ideas.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥
