Masking Day 5


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
