As some of my regular readers may know I am on my yearly trip down to my Mum’s and having great fun sharing our hobby of papercrafting.
This week over on the SplodgeAway Blog is all about using different mediums with your masks, what do you like to use with yours? I have used all sorts of things with my masks, modeling paste, paint, glue, they all work great. For this weeks project I painted my cardboard with some watercolour paints that used to belong to Dad, then inked through a Funky frame mask with perfect medium and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used some glitter glue through the floral framer mask to create some texture on the left then I paper pieced one of my new Prima doll stamps with some scraps from Mum’s stash. I stamped over the clear embossing with the leafy swirl stamp from Clarity Stamps
Hi everyone, I hope we are all enjoying the sunshine, I know we are here. This week over on the SplodgeAway blog the theme is Summer Loving, I knew exactly what I was going to create as soon as I knew this. I have been to a demo at the Papeterie in Aberdeen by the brilliant Sue Wilson and she created a card similar to this so that is where my inspiration came from.
I had a couple of pieces of card left over from another project but not enough to create a complete background so I cut triangular strips and created the rays. I used the Psychedelic mask set and some wild honey distress ink on the Easy Ink card to create the paper originally.
Hop on over to the blog to see what the rest of the crew have in store for you this week.
Well ok they are not roses, but they are red 🙂 When I started to colour this Bugaboo image , I had them in yellow, then I remembered that for the new challenge over at ABC challenges, they should be red, so I ended up colouring over the top. Thank goodness for Copic pens! I used a mask from SplodgeAway to make the background.
This week on the SplodgeAway blog myself and my fellow DT members are sharing our favourite things to do with our masks, one of my favourites is using them with my Gelli plate.
The masks are great for this, they clean up really well afterwards too. The effects you can create with them are great with both first and second prints. Go on, have a go, its great fun, even your kids can have a go, but beware its messy and adictive!
Here is a card I made using the Hex-o-Star Mask and a topper from a CD by La Pashe.
Warning: Picture heavy post!
What a busy show Tom and Hazel had on Create and Craft TV on Tuesday! I am really not surprised as they had some awesome masks on sale. When you have done here pop over to the SplodgeAway blog and see what the rest of the DT created as all the samples were awesome. Here are the samples I created for the show.
First up we have the Bulldog, Light bulb and Drips from the Altered Art Kit
This one was simply inked through with Black Soot distress ink onto some backing paper:
This one used some texture paste onto a sheet of Drummond Tartan and then I used some rub on wax over the top of the texture paste:
Wall hanging with flitter glu (from Indigo Blu) through the mask and gilding flakes applied
Another simply inked through with Black Soot and Vintage Photo distress inks:
This one is mount board cut using a Bigz die and then I inked up the mask with versamark and ran it through the Grand Calibur to transfer the ink and then applied embossing powder ans heated:
Mask drawn around and cut out of white cardstock:
Next up we have the fairies (some of which could also be Angels – hence my second card) from the FunkyFairy kit
Guilding flakes applied to Flitter Glu that was spread through(left side) and around (right side) the masks
Then we have 2 cards made with Leafy Wreath from the Wreath Kit
Mask embossed using the Grand Calibur then placed on the card to ink around:
Ink onto mask and pass through the Grand Calibur to transfer the ink:
Last but not least I used the Splodgy mask from the Texturizer Kit
This one was made by inking through the mask with different blues in the distress inks, turning the mask each time before applying the next colour
This one was made to show that you can use the masks with digital artwork too – the invite was made in Serif Craft Artist and then the water was created with versamark inked through the mask and clear embossing powder:
The lovely Heather over at Lacy Sunshine stamps is very kindly sponsoring the Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge this month and the prize is a whopping $20 gift certificate!
Here is the my design team card:
The image I used is called Lizabeth- Wild Daisies Digi Set, the papers just cried out to be used with her. I coloured her with copic’s and cut her out with a Nellie Snellen die. The theme this month is Metal Magic, so I used some rainbow mirror card for my flourishes (well its kind of metal isnt it!)
Here is my card for the new challenge over at ABC challenge blog where the theme calls for lots of layers. I used some of my rainbow shimmer card in here and it does not photograph very well at all!
