Creative Artiste Challenge Blog - Anythings Goes

Hi My Craft Blog Friends

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. 

Happy Crafting

  20. Jackie, your creations using the masks are amazing! I especially like the yellow beauty's dramatic use of color! The black against that citron yellow and the gentle greens is VERY eye catching! Both are lovely masterpieces, Jackie. Hope your family had fun celebrating your husband's birthday, and that wedding preparations are going well! Hugs, de
