POSTCARD CHALLENGE 2012!

For week 3 of this great challenge we were given the country Brazil... I have to be honest right from the start I was stumped! I had no idea what I would include on my card and how it would turn out. I kept looking at Brazil and researching fact pages about the country and its traditions - one thing that did keep coming up was carnivals and there were a couple of people that commented on a post I had put on our group with the same theme.
Carnival it is then!


I had already created the background for this weeks card earlier in the week hoping that would in some way inspire me... For this I took the colours pumpkin pie, rose red and daffodil yellow and sponged a piece of whisper white card, I then inked the edges of this with black. Once I had finished this I then screwed up a card bag and randomly stamped shimmer paint in silver onto this and then inked the edges in black
The main image of my card was a mask which I borrowed the stamp off my friend Sam and stamped one in black on whisper white and one on black card that was white embossed. I sponged the one on white card in the same colours and then added glitter to the image - once this was dry I cut the image in half and glued it to the edge of the card the right eye to the left and left to the right handside. Over the top of this using dimensionals I attached the black mask also decorated using glitter.
I hope you like the postcard I have in the end loved making! Debbi xxx
