This is my April 2015 entry into Lindy's Stamp Gang monthly challenge.  I used every spray color to make my background, a little texture with a stencil and I like how it turned out.  I used a Venice Carnival picture from Pinterest - some of the masks and costumes at the Carnival are absolutely amazing!  (You can click on the picture to enlarge).  Below is the link to the April challenge:
