Mardi Gras Madness

Our current challenge on Magnolia Stamp Lovers is to create a project inspired by Mardi Gras or carnival. I went with Mardi Gras and used the traditional colors of yellow, green, and purple. First I cut a mardi gras mask with my cricut from the cartridge Designer's Calendar, I cut it

large enough for my Tilda to sit on. I accessorized the mask with some feathers, sequins, and glitter. Then I colored my Tilda. I used Jam Tilda and finally I was able to use some of the bright primary colors I have that I normally don't use. I colored her dress in the different Mardi Gras colors and then added a little green jesters hat also cut from designer's calendar. Then I gave Tilda a strand of beads to hold and placed her on the mask. The front part of the easel card is a combination of black and white harlequin print paper and purple cardstock embossed with my cuttlebug fleur de lis folder. I finished the inside with some more harlequin print paper, some bright yellow cardstock, and some jewels. This was a really fun project and I had a great time making it. Be sure to check the Magnolia Stamp Lovers blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with as well as entering your own Mardi Gras themed project!!!! Laissez le bons temps roulez!!!!
