I knew right away that I was going to use traditional Mardi Gras colors. I rarely work with colors from Bold Brights and never only those colors. The design came to me pretty quickly. I just cut one inch strips and arranged them in a hapahazard way behind the recipe.
But, I felt like it was just SO bright. I needed to tone it down a little and I thought a little texture might do the trick.I love my Big Shot and texturz plates to spice projects up! The harlequin design fit in nicely with the whole Mardi Gras theme and helped take the edge off of the solid bright colors. A couple of jeweled brads finishes off the page nicely .
