Be the Change

Hello everyone we are on a different challenge this month its all about masking this can be done in so many different ways this is my take on masking hope you enjoy.

Clarity stencils Shaped circle/ Leaf with leaf stamps /Clarity Club stencil
 Clarity sentiment stamp
Clarity masking sheet / masking tape
Stencil brushes / make up sponge / Clarity Gelli card
Gelli plate
Distress inks Peeled paint / spiced marmalade / Mustard seed / bundled sage
Adirondack pitch black /promarkers
Kitchen roll / brayer


Lets get started



 
Using the masking sheet I draw around the hole in the middle on to the masking sheet cut out and placed this in the middle of my card


 This I'm sorry I did have two picture of this as I did this twice  but some how the other picture has disappeared with my gelli plate I added ink mustard seed peeled paint and spiced marmalade randomly over gelli plate then with kitchen roll rolled up dab all over then pull you print from this I repeated it a second time as I wanted more colour got lot better effect doing this twice
 Apply spiced marmalade with brayer to plate put your next stencil down apply copie paper rub of excess take stencil off pull your print
 Now mask up your card again with circle mask then the edges of the card where white with masking tape does not matter if your print has a couple of edges missing as the this often improves with next step
 I used peeled paint first with stencil brush around the out sides then the circle mask using make up sponge use the ink from the mask the make the shadow darker I darkened the corners with sponge to get a sharper corner
 stamp in black your leaf stamp
 apply your leaf stencil with masking tape using bundled sage and stencil brush add colour leaving the middle slightly lighter then take off excess  from stencil with make up sponge to make it darker around edges
 Colour in with promarkers I placed the middle of my leaf stencil over the leaf with make up sponge and peel paint I added a shadow around the leaf
 Add sentiment Then with burnt orange promarker went around the edge of card with the chisel edge of the pen keep it flat Thank you for visiting my blog hope you enjoyed this.  hope to see you again soon

  5. Hi Julie,
    The thing I particularly love about your project is the contrast between crisp stamping and the grungy background. Deserves to be framed and on a wall! ;~}

  7. Terrific use of masking Julie. Love your Gelli background. I find it makes each card original as I can never repeat an effect exactly the same which makes it more fun x

  9. Great card Julie. I particularly like the gelli background and the depth of colour you've achieved with inks. I shall definitely be trying out your tip to pull a second print to achieve this; it looks fab. Xxx
