Mardi Gras

This week at the Rainbow Lady's Challenge it is appropriately for the time of the year Mardi Gras. i am rather late but have had a few computer problems, I so didn't want to miss this challenge. I love the colour and drama of  Mardi Gras. I created my own background, with various TH Distress inks and a few splashes of Cosmic Shimmer spritz, only it didn't spritz, the end of the nozzle is obviously blocked. However I guess this is what is called either a big mistake, a happy accident or serendipity, I don't have time before the closure to make another. The image is from a stamp by Elusive Images ~ now Chocolate Baroque. I coloured a piece of card with various Distress inks, then stamped with a Memento Tuxedo Black. Thanks for such a colourful challenge.
