Venetian Mask

It is the turn of team Stella to bring you this Fortnights challenge and our theme is Theatrical.

I have wanted to colour Mitzi's Venetian Mask - Harlequinade for some time and thought this was the perfect challenge to use it for my DT inspiration.

I have visited Venice and couple of times, once as a child and about 6 years ago, I think is a beautiful and unique city and one of the things I love the most is the stunning venetian masks in all the shops.

On my last trip I purchased one in a lovely Emerald Green and Gold, which happens to also be the colour scheme I used for my wedding.

So here is my project with my Venetian mask.

 I kept to two colour families, Green & yellow, with just a hint of gold in the some of the pearls on the image and I also outlined some elements with a gold gel pen.  Finally I added a thin line of gold glitter around the image.

It doesn't show up very well, but the background is embossed with a harlequin pattern to match the mask.

The feathers have been cut on my Cameo.

I do hope you come on over and join us.
