Mardi Gras

Seems like every prompt I have done ahead I have ended up tossing into my "shit" pile. And of course this weeks was no exception. But I hated the first one before I was done and time did NOT change my opinion of it. Maybe it was trying to make the purple and green work together in harmony (not sure how the hell I was supposed  do that) but it was hate.  Like of a thousand burning suns kind of hate. So, nothing sparks creativity like a looming deadline and at 6 this morning it hit me. So out came my Inktense pencils and my metallic pens and the baby wipes. 

So I laid down color with the pencils. Just 3,  fuschia, mauve and violet. Then taking a gentle hand with a baby wipe, I smoothed the color all over the page.   Once it was dry, I took my metallic pens to it and just wrote "mardi gras" all over and drew "beads" all over.  Basic, simple but I don't hate it. In fact, I really like it.
