Carnival week - Gio

Gio is putting her party hat on!!! 
She has altered the Tando Creative Mad Hatters Top Hat beautifully for you today. 

I glued with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Medium - Matte the scattered card suit provided in the kit to the three different parts of the Tando Creative: Mad Hatters Top Hat to create texture.
I covered with gesso, then I painted using a mixture of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints: Pumpkin soup and South pacific. When dry, I even added a light coat of gesso. I decorated the hat with the Tando Masks: Distorted Harlequin and Distress Ink pad: Picked Raspberry. 
I added some depth using some Faber-Castell oil pastel: Fuchsia and Purple violet.

I stamped randomnly using PaperArtsy - Lynne Perrella collection 003 stamp plate and Ranger Archival Ink pad: Deep purple. I attached to the top of the hat some glass beads. I assembled everything with the help of a couple of peg and lot of glue.

Tando Masks: Distorted harlequin
Faber-Castell oil pastel: Fuchsia, Purple violet
