AAA Cards #74 Masking

Hi All

Time for a new challenge at AAA Cards

Our challenge is:

Masking

Her is my card:


This card I made for a very dear friend who I knew needed to be reminded to believe in her dreams and remember that whatever she did she would shine!

I made it a while ago but wasn't that happy with it but am hoping the thought behind it helps her over look this! 

I also wanted to use my watercolouring masking paste that hasn't been used for a while plus some actual water colour paints (not brushos!). I used paste to mask off a rough area. I then watered this area and added a mix of water colour paints. Left this to dry over night and then heat embossed the sentiment. You can't see from the photo but each letter of the sentiment is covered in WOS....to make it shine!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Rahmat-check out her blog here I have followed Rahmat for a long time now and adore her creativity from cards to cooking!

Check out what Rahmat and the DT have made to inspire you here and then get masking!

  11. I like the loose stripe a lot; looks like you had fun making it! Maybe too far from your style...you have to try and see what you like ...and sometimes it is a great new way to woork... Hugs, Gerrina

  12. I don't know what about it you don't like. It's grungy in a feminine and soft kind of way, I find it beautiful and unique.
