Tomorrow is faschnaut day in Pennyslvania and Mardi Gras in New Orleans. I’ve been to New Orleans but not during Mardi Gras but I have many memories of my grandmother making the faschnaut donuts. My job was to deliver them to neighbors and collect a little bit of money for her hard work. The challenge at Sunday Stamps is Bright Colors and the color seen below immediately reminded me of Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, gold. Using Distress Inks in wilted violet and pine needles which were sponged onto my white cardstock, then placed my stencil by Buddy Bonnie on top and inked with VersaMark then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The black soot distress ink was applied over the entire image and then buffed off.
Double D’s Challenge is to include the saying “HELLO” so I used the new Hello scripty die from Gina K Designs and cut out from the colored panel and then multiple times and layered and inserted back into the die opening. I added some bright yellow cardstock and stamped Concord & 9th Dahlia Turnabout Friend sentiment on the bright yellow cardstock. Added a few sequins and a purple gem stone in the “h” loop.
Thanks for looking and have a great day! Happy Faschnaut Day and have a doughnut before Lent begins.
