Janet's Challenge


The third and final challange from our Tanda meet was set by Janet aka Dr. Babs who gave each of us a paper serviette with the image of Paua shell on it and 2 shell fragments. Janet also gave me this beautiful card. Could not imagine doing a card as lovely as hers so was stuck for a while, until the morning when I woke up with this idea in my head. Not working is not a bundle of laughs but at least there is time to play.

Gesso base, Acrylic paints, Stamp bug 'Complex creation' stamped and embossed, Glimmer Mist, tissue added with Modge Podge. Viva Crackle paste and a spray of spray and shine. Cropadile puched holes with eyelets for thread to hang mask, covered by shell disks threaded and hung from one side, great Craft Stamper cover stamp a shell stamped and embossed and decouparged onto other side. A large gem fills one eye with the shell fragement over it as a brow and a few self adhesive pearls. First time one of these masks has been so masculine think he is quite the Merman.
