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 ­čÖé 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.

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:

Last but not least I used the Splodgy mask from the Texturizer Kit

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.

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.
