Mardi Gras Projects


First of all, thanks for all the get well wishes. I did go to the doctor today and nothing is broken, I am just sore and need to take it easy for the next few days. I can't go back to work until Friday so I should have lots of time to color. I don't have any Mardi Gras images and when Shirley's 2 Girls released these, I knew I wanted them! There are three images in all and I will be using them all over the next week or so. I think Kip and I are going to have a few friends over for dinner and everything you will be seeing will be what I will use for that dinner. My first project used the image Bourbon Street. I wanted to make a menu board. I started with a plain clip board and painted it with black chalk board paint. I sized my image to the size I thought would be good for the size of the board, printed it out and colored it with Copics and a metallic gold pen. I also used some green and purple glitter glues. The image is mounted onto purple and green card stocks before I added it to my board. I added green, purple and gold ribbons from Hobby Lobby on the clip to cover it up. Not sure this is the final menu, but these are things I know how to make. I haven't ever made a King Cake all by myself though. I have assisted and made them with a friend before though.

My second project is a card that I will used for an invitation to the dinner. I used the Mask image on this one. It was also colored with Copics and the metallic gold pen. I added some gold rhinestones and some feathers in the traditional Mardi Gras colors.
