I hope that you have had a wonderful week and that you have got done all the things that you wanted to do. I have a week mostly catching up on jobs. I am now preparing for our daughter to visit this evening. The plan is to make my husband a birthday cake and tomorrow we are going somewhere so she can try on wedding dresses. This is super exciting.
The first Friday of the month see the start of a new challenge on the Creative Artiste Challenge blog and the theme is Anything Goes. We have a sponsor Stamporations and the Design Team were sent masks to work with. I was sent the Shutters mask and the Bold Florals mask.
The masks were quite different so I decided to make two cards.
To create the background I laid the Bold Florals mask on to some watercolour card. First I sprinkled some mica over the mask and then with a brush I put some Brusho powder where I wanted it on the design. Now it was time to spritz it with water. While it was still wet I lifted the mask and I left the design to dry. As I had added mica the background has a slight shimmer.
Here is a close up on the background. I was lots of fun to create.
The lilies were created with a Spellbinder die set and coloured with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I really do try to use them whenever I can. I love the way they can be moved around with water.
I used a Sue Wilson die to cut the flag and its mat. The sentiment was cut with a Britannia word die set. I didn't want to put too much on the card to hide the pretty background.
This card is quite different in tone. I actually made this one first. I put the Shutter mask onto some water colour card. It was sprinkled with some of my Brushos this time more randomly. Once this was done I spritzed the mask with water. I removed the mask and turned it inky side down onto some ready and waiting watercolour card. This is how I created the second mat.
The sentiment came from the Woodware Gone to Seed stamp set. It was stamped in Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a sparkly black powder.
This is the Gone to Seed stamp I love it. Again it was stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a black sparkly powder.
I had lots of fun making these cards. I love masks all the things you can do with them they are so versatile.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
