Colors of Mardi Gras

Challenges
Sunday Stampers: Bright & Bold
The Paper Players: Sketch

BG is gold shimmer spray through harlequin stencil on white copy paper. The shimmer spray is half alcohol and half water in small spray bottle with squirt of gold acrylic paint, small squeeze of clear drying liquid glue and dollop of gold perfect pearls. I used a black ink pad to rub the edges and heat set black embossing powder for dots. Focal piece is heavy embossing folder with white cs that got black color burst smacked and black ink pad smeared. Had to go in and use copic in green to highlight some to meet the challenge colors. Sentiment die cut was white cs that got purple shimmer sprayed then heat set with chunky clear embossing powder. Had to play with the hot piece to get it to curve then glued it on. Small sentiment tag was printed and cut on Silhouette then adhered.

The colors are very vibrant and tons of shimmer, which the camera has a hard time showing.
