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:
Today is the start of the SplodgeAway ‘Anything but a Card’ week and I am starting the week with this bird hanging
I used the SplodgeAway 6″x6″ Fancy Lattice Mask to make it along with some distress ink, an IndigoBlu stamp and a cutting file that my pal Gina made for the birds and the hearts. I decorated a couple of the hearts with my Martha Stewart clay.
Please pop over to the SplodgeAway Blog and see what the rest of the design team come up with for the rest of the week, I know you will be in for a treat.
I’ve made this wall hanging to go into the fabulous Hels Sheridan’s challenge, the theme this time is Purple Haze, as it is my favourite colour I just had to have a go didn’t I?
I took inspiration from the hanging that Hel’s made on air last week on Create and Craft, it turned out a little more pink than I would have liked normally but then you have to go with what you have (it definitely said purple on the pot of paint!)
I used the mask that came with Ali Reeve’s DVD and some texture paste I bought in my local Lidl’s quite a while ago, I then painted with said purple paint and used a Cut and Dry sponge around the edges, The silver is distress paint and the sentiment comes from Personal Impressions Creative Thoughts set (one I go to over and over). I cut the flower out of some mount board with my new Big Shot (anniversary pressie from hubby – thanks Roddie)and tattered florals die, painted and stamped it with an indigo Blu script stamp (another “go to”). The butterflies are made from Martha Stewart paper clay and mold then painted with the same “purple” paint.
I am delighted to say that I have been asked join the design team over at the ABC Challenge blog and this is my first post with them.
The challenge is on the 1st and 15th of every month and the first one for may is M is for Make it sparkle and our wonderful sponsors for this round are Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and Tilda’s Town
I made a wine bottle holder and decorated it with gilding flakes and some gold mirror card cut with one of my new E K Success punches.

I used the mask to emboss the card and then some distress ink, a brayer and my new Splodge Away mat to colour the background before stamping with flitter glue and applying the flakes to the super cool snowflake stamp in the set.
