Through the mask with SplodgeAway

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

Here is the result – a wall hanging for my Cousin’s wife for her birthday (Happy Birthday Nikki)

Favourite Technique with SplodgeAway and the Gelli Plate

Rock On card with SplodgeAway mask and Gelli Pate 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.

P is for Pretty in Pink

Pretty In Pink card for ABC Challenge blog

Hello from a sunny Scotland (well it is whilst I am writing this post – bet it wont be when it goes out, but I can live in hope) Today is time for a new challenge over at the ABC challenge blog and I have made a fairly simple card using an element kit I am about to start selling. Our sponsor this fortnight is My Favourite Things who do a fabulous range of Die-namics dies amongst other things.

Inking and brayering with the SplodgeAway mat

Birthday Butterfly made with Clarity stamps and SplodgeAway mat

This week over on the SplodgeAway blog is SplodgeAway mat week and my fellow DT members are showcasing their use of the mat. I have my mat out pretty much all the time as there aren’t many things that I don’t use it for, it is just so versatile and helps you blend in so well. Here is a card I have made for my Sister in Law’s birthday (its ok, she doesnt read my blog – well not that I know of anyway!) I used my mat to brayer the background and then I used the blending tool and the mat to blend the inks on the topper. All the stamps except for the greeting are from Clarity Stamp Company.

Hunkydory meets Friday Sketch

birthday card using lovely ladies collection from hunkydory

Hi there bloggers, today it is my turn to make the sketch over at the Friday Sketch Challenge so here it is:

Friday Sketch 42

I have made my Mum’s Birthday card so lets hope she doesn’t read this (I don’t think she will as last time I spoke to here she didn’t have a working PC) I used the Hunkydory Lovely Ladies collection for the topper and the two panels. I stamped the background of the card with a free stamp from the Craft Stamper magazine.
