Mardi Gras


The background was created using Starburst Sprays in Batchelor Button Blue and Violet, with some Adirondack Denim too. Cling film was placed over the wet sprays to create textured effect. once dry, the piece was misted with some gold metallic spray, (click on picture for larger image to see this) and stamped with a flourish in black. The mask was made using black polymer clay and perfect pearls in interference blue and interference violet. Gold Krylon was added to the edges and some gold gems attached. Lettering and 3D flourishes are grungeboard with gold krylon.
