More masking

Surprised? That I would do more masking, that is?  I should set myself a challenge one day to make a card that doesn’t involve sponging or masking!

This one is masked but not sponged. I added the colour to the masked panel with a brayer, first the cranberry then the teal. I then stamped a few flowers in teal and cranberry before removing the masks and adding flowers in black. The sentiment does look a wee bit lost on the coloured panel but in real life it is easier to read.


Stamps: Wildflowers Vol 2 (Darkroom Door), …smiling (PB)
Inks: Cranberry Crisp, Taken with Teal(SU), Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic Ivory

    This is so pretty! What an unusual combination of colors — beautiful! I love the flowers stamped outside the masked lines. What a lovely composition; you’re as good at brayering as you are at sponging! I really like these colors together; they’re so eye-catchingly unusual. Glad to see something so lovely using the “old” SU colors.

    You’re funny — I’m sure I’ve seen, um, one unmasked card on your blog some time? 😛 But why mess with what works so perfectly for you. These colours are beautiful.

  15. Beautiful brayer work. After a browse through your blog I can see you are a master of masking and produce beautiful cards 🙂

    I’ve had exactly the same thing Heather – I hadn’t realised quite how much I do mask! This is another beauty from you with another gorgeous colour palette. Great to see you show-cased at LiM this week!
