Carnival

With Mardi Gras fast approaching I’ll be posting some carnival themed art over the next week.  This first piece is something I designed for Alpha Stamps.  The top and the bottom are made of plastic craft organizers connected by wooden skewers.  The hanging windows are German Scrap.
The mask is made from a combination of feathers (I dyed white feathers orange using Ranger Alcohol Ink), Stamped Flourishes to which I added glitter, a gold brass mask to which I added glitter and white leaf stickpins.

This Carnival piece you made for the Alpha Stamps web site is absolutely stunning. I literally haven't seen one thing that you've made that I either didn't like or that just wasn't my taste. Every single thing I've seen from you is so beautiful and I just love the detail you put into each piece. No matter how big or small the project is, you go all the way. Your the poster girl for "Go Big or Go Home". Stunning work!!!
