My Sheri Crafts-#47

I want to take this moment to thank Sheri for giving me the honor of being the Guest Designer this week at My Sheri Crafts I have been entering Sheri's challenges for a good while now. I've missed a few here and there but I try to do them every week. Sheri always has a great challenge to offer. When I got the e-mail from Sheri, my mind went right to work. This weeks theme is Mardi Gras. Now, I have never been to Mardi Gras and have never celebrated it, so I don't know all that much about it, except what I might catch on the news. What seems to stick in my mind is masks. So I got on google and looked at some sites, and I really liked the masks that just cover the eyes. I think they put just a little bit of mystery to it all, but not covering the whole face. I decided to make a mask and a card. I designed it all on my Gypsy Girl. I used the Designer's Calendar Cartridge. I made the mask to fit as large as it would go on a 12x12 mat. I cut one out of chipboard and one from this deep purple. I had some bling that I had picked up at HL on clearance that I thought the design would look good on the mask. They were clear so I took my Copics and colored them green. The other bling is from Me and My Big Ideas and they were also clear. I colored them green and purple. Then did a little doodling. For the card, I cut the mask and the phrase from DC cart. Mask in purple again and phrase in green. I used the MaMBI bling again on the mask and some doodling. The bling above and under the phrase is the rest of the design that I used on the big mask. I colored one of them green and the other purple. I also did some doodling on the phrase. On the small mask on the inside, all I did was a little doodling. The bg paper is from Basic Gray-Euphoria-Cool Cardstock. I thought it looked like fireworks and would go great with the theme. Now, it is your turn to head on over to My Sheri Crafts and join in on the Mardi Gras fun!!! Create and link and you may be the next lucky one and get to be the next Guest Designer!! I hope ya'll like my mask and card!!!! :)
