Coloring Corner: Template for Mardi Gras

Happy Mardi Gras!

Today is the last day before the start of Lent in much of the Christian world. People all over the world celebrate with festivals, parades, and feasts. Two of the most famous celebrations are the Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans and Carnival in Rio Di Janeiro.

Costumes are a major part of those celebrations, as are masks. Feathered, sequined, glamour, and glitz are all elements that make each mask unique to the wearer.

To help you with YOUR celebration, we would like to share a template so you can create your own special Mardi Gras mask. Use traditional colors of green, violet, and gold or some other color scheme. Just color it, or glue on sequins, beads, feathers or flocking. Use rub-ons or designer paper. Decoupage some photos or stamped images. Decorate the mask any way you want!

When you have finished your mask, please share what you have made with us. Email a photo to franticStamperSketchPhotos@yahoo.com and we will add it to this post.

We really would love to see your creation!
