Mardis Gras...

is the theme for Gothic Arches this week, what a great theme with loads of possibilities. I chose to create some mini masks using a mould and Makins clay in black. Once dry I coloured using metallic markers and decorated the edges of some with paper, fabric or feathers. The background was layered card, a page of an old book, crackle paint and distress inks. Hope you like the end result.
