Day 3 Mask-erade

Hi!

I'm back with another card from online card classes, Mask-erade.


Day three was all about masking fluids. I have never tried using any of them before and didn't have any on hand. So, while I was at work today, I picked up some Rubber Cement to use instead. It worked great and is cheaper too - yay!

Shari Carroll shared a technique that I wanted to try. Her card was amazing, as always! Here's my take:


After stamping the Butterflies from Tim Holtz onto watercolor paper, I masked them off using the rubber cement. Then I stamped the Hero Arts background cling, Dotted Grid and added Distress Inks mixed with water through a Tim Hotz stencil. The layer of rubber cement protects the butterflies from all that ink. I just rubbed it right off after the ink was dry. The sentiment is from this set by Simon Says Stamp.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Barb
