Paper Craft Crew Inspiration Challenge #PCC279 ~ Mardi Gras

Stampin' Up! Detailed Dragonfly Dreams SU Handmade Mask Idea order craft supplies from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

Hi and thanks for stopping by today. It's Jay here with my Design Team project for the Paper Craft Crew Inspiration Challenge #PCC279 ~ Mardi Gras

Paper Craft Crew Mardi Gras Inspiration Challenge #PCC279 using Stampin' Up! products order SU craft supplies from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

After thinking for a while of what I could do with this theme, I took the image above and Mardi Gras colours to create my own handmade mask using Stampin' Up! products

Dimension: 25.5cm x 13.5cm
I used the Layering Ovals Framelits as a template to draw the main body of the mask with 1cm bridge  then hand cut inside the lines with Paper Snips. I die cut 2 of the same size ovals and a smaller oval for the eye hole in Wisteria Wonder cardstock. These were then stamped with the splatter design from Dragonfly Dreams in Perfect Plum, concentrating more on the outer edges

I die cut 4 large dragonflies and 4 small ones from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies. Cut off the body and carefully adhered the wings along the edge. I also die cut the large scallop from Layering Ovals in Garden Green and snipped in the middle for the 'brows'

For the finishing touches, I added Gold Faceted Gems and of course I had to use the Gold Glitter Flakes!!! It really didn't take that long, carefully placing the flakes individually with the help of a pick tool. You can make your own by applying a small dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the other end of your Paper-Piercing Tool then wait for it to go clear/dry

I am also entering this project to the following challenges:
