'Gothic Arches'

This weeks challenge is 'Mardi Gras'
One of my favourite themes and I bought these stamps, at the Craft Barn
They are 'Katzelkraft' an unmounted sheet of stamps.  and I liked them so much I did two!
I used black Stazon, but a brick colour looks equally effective.
The background is misted with Cosmic Shimmer. Before the image is mounted, I edged it with CosmicShimmer [yes, I am hooked on Cosmic Shimmer] Magenta Blaze Aurora. This powder looked deep purple when I opened the jar, but it has a green hue when embossed.
Just a bit of ribbon and feathers together with moulded hand and masks and it is finished

Love the mask embellishment on the second piece--both of them are really creative and fun!

This is an ATC which means an Artists Trading Card where people from all over swap these little cards. They measure 2 1/2ins by 3 1/2 ins and they cannot be bought.
