Masking Day 5

Hello...

I've enjoyed learning the tips and tricks with the online class Mask-erade


Day 5 was a lesson using heat embossing to mask your images and once again there were some lovely samples from the tutors...
I'm loving water colouring lately and I used a poppy stencil to create this card


You can make your own stencil by using the negative part of a die cut ... tape it down onto your card and smoosh away with your Versamark then heat emboss with clear EP or you could just use your stamps


The embossing resists the paint ... I used TH distress stains for my card ... I love them
You can also see that I added a few old Rubons ...I love how that little butterfly looks against the water colour... To be honest I wasn't sure they would work but they did


I'll share a little tip with you that Debbie Hughes gave and that was if you iron over the embossing (using a piece of paper) the shine comes off... I didn't try that - I thought I may just ruin the whole thing.

Thanks so much for popping by ... Have a lovely day

Mmmm, breathtaking, Ros! I love the soft dreamy feel you get with your watercoloring. I tried to emulate you with my leaf card, by blotting up the colors as I went. I love the vibrant colors, too, but when it comes to lavenders and soft mints and blues, I think they look so pretty in pastels. The butterfly on here is really soft. I thought about ironing, but I was scared, too! Besides, I like the sheen. I liked it so much I embossed over mine again in white. Next time, let's sit next to each other in class, okay?! Hugs, Darnell
