Carnival Time!

Gaudy colours always remind me of carnivals and carnivals remind me of some of the amazing masks used.

This is our amazing mask from the Crimson Cloud Venetian Mask Set. I have paired up with some very precious paper which I brought back from the UK.

Here’s how:

Stamp the mask and the sentiment from the same set with Versamark onto a sheet of shocking pink card stock and heat emboss with black embossing powder. Using a Versamark pen, I filled in the tear drop and embossed with the black embossing powder to give the mask a stronger image given the strength of the background.  I also used a few ‘jet’ beads’ for the same reason.  

I mounted the mask and sentiment onto to a Grand Callibur Scalloped Circle die cut using some mounting foam  and decorated with some pretty ribbons and a couple of Creative Expressions black hat pins.

I made a basic 8 x 8 inch card in black card stock and matted some striking patterned paper onto it.

I cut out an extra flower from the patterned paper and used it as an embellishment at the bottom of the card to create dimension.

Does it put you in the mood to carnival?

  1. Hi Lucretia,
    Thank you for your comments, I guess the whole concept of a Masked Ball is quite sexual and mysterious?
