I am honored this month to be a Guest Designer for Cat over at the Paper Dragonfly Creative Challenges. Are you ready to celebrate in style????? I hope so, because the March theme is.....Mardi Gras!
Wow...this was really a challenge for me, but I discovered I had a few Mardi Gras looking stamps in my stash. So it was the perfect time to pull them out. Dragonflies are optional for this challenge, but there is a special incentive if you do use them. You can read all about that on the Paper Dragonfly Creative Challenges blog.
I got really arty and maybe a little wild with my card.....which I guess is right on mark with the theme. Mardi Gras really isn't a "thing" where I live so I had to Google Image search for Mardi Gras motifs. To my surprise, a stamp set that I recently received from Impression Obsession had several images that could work: fleur de lis and diamonds. I chose a watercolor background from my stash and added gold embossed dragonflies.
My masked lady with crown and wings was from a thrift store grab bag. I managed to track down the name of the artist....Teesha Moore....but I could not discover what company this stamp might be from. So if you recognize it, please let me know!! I decided to give the gal purple skin for the occasion.....weird, huh? But fun. :)
