A place where no rules apply, and fingers get inky and stained!!

So whilst the girls were having their bath I had a play again with inks, mists and masks ...
For this card I used a mask from a Tattered Angels Blossom set. I inked the cardstock in marigold DI and then placed the mask across.  I then inked over in rusty hinge, honey and vintage photo.  When it was all dry I spritzed over with frost glimmer mist.  Finally I stamped the sentiment.

And this ongoing ... I had an idea to use one of my MS punches to create a mask.  Having punched the mask, i inked over it using Victorian Velvet DI and then spritzed over it with gold glimmer mist. I used a scrap piece of card and swiped it with the DI and then mopped up the waste glimmer mist onto it ... dried and cut a TH tatter flower out.  Just pondering if its a centre flowe, off the edge, needs a stmping/embossing ... just needs a something to finish it off!

  8. I love seeing techniques that I have long forgotten about!! Love your entry card for this weeks challenge. Very CAS...your second card, i would have to agree is missing something. You can keep the flower centered, but try misting maybe smaller flowers in the background with different colors (say maybe teh corners), just to add more activity.

    Thank you for joining us at Sentimental Sundays this week.
