Just for fun week 6

Well Zoe had us scratching our heads with try a new technique to You and it isn't until you see what someone else has done that you think owww never tried that !!! and I saw my idea on another challenge where someone had used gilding flakes in a distressed manner so had to think how could I do that .So on my card I have used an old 2 way glue marker that didn't flow nicely anymore and put the glue done in a haphazard way and then added the gilding flakes, the mask I drew and cut out by edged with a gold pen.
I'd also like to enter this in the Gingersnaps Creation Mardi Gras Challenge
This card has already been swapped, so I have made an atc but this time using a 2 way glue pen and brushing the glue with an old toothbrush and used some hot foil instead just to compare the two :)

That mask is absolutely stunning Von. You are clever designing that yourself. A very interesting technique which I really must try.
