Through the mask with SplodgeAway

wall hanging using prima doll stamp and splodgeaway mask

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)

Summer Loving with SplodgeAway

Sending you Sunshine with SplodgeAway masks

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.

R is for Roses are red with SplodgeAway

Roses Are Red card using mask from SplodgeAway

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.

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.

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:

CBN July 1 sponsored by Lacy Sunshine stamps

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!)
