Masking to my Heart's Content
365 Cards - Day 163 Try a Technique: Masking
Oh! I was excited by this because it MADE me dust off a stamp I bought about 5 years ago and have never used, I know, I'm ashamed!
It is a stamp by Clarity called Abstractart and is brilliant for masking...well it's made for it.
All the stamps bar a couple of little Hero Arts flowers are Clarity also...I used to collect them, and still would if I had the money. Barbara Santerelli, as she was then, was my all time fave. Designer
I stamped the large frame stamp in Versafine Onyx Black and then masked off every little area in turn with Post-It notes and stamped different flowers, butterflies and some of the leaves into all the areas.
I then coloured them with a mix of PM's and Copics.
Then I went over the veins in the butterflies wings and the antenna with a Quickie glue pen and sprinkled over Stampendous Ultra Fine Crystal glitter....remembering it is Art Glitter Week.
Then a Making Memories Page Pebble was added to the magnifying glass for a lens.
The sentiment stamp also by Clarity was stamped in Versafine also
Matted and layered onto a buttery yellow piece of Bazzill and then finally mounted onto a chocolate brown DL card.
A piece of satin ribbon and 2 Doodlebug gems finished it off.
