Masking and Copics World Card Making Day!

Hi there!

I had every intention of sitting down to create a few cards for World Card Making Day but life sure can get in the way! Between cleaning the house before friends stopped over, running errands and watching a few videos on Periscope, I ended up only making one card. But I do love how it turned out and really enjoyed the process!

I've always loved masking, along with the results you get from this technique, but I have trouble with the patience it takes to use it too often. Reminder to self . . . . use it more often!



I'm in love with this beautiful Addie's Garden set from Winnie and Walter! The images are so fun to color. I used Copics, by the way. And that big "Hugs" stamp? That's from Simon Says Stamp. It's included in their, Best Hugs set.

I have to thank my good friend, Kelly Latevola for her awesome talent! I love watching her videos and have learned so much about masking and coloring from her! If you don't follow her blog, Instagram, You Tube, Periscope, etc, you should - she's amazing!

Short and sweet tonight. Hope you all had time to create something today! Happy World Card Making Day! ♥

I agree...you should use this technique more often, Barb! You've done a really amazing job coloring these beautiful flowers with your Copics, and I love your design! It's funny that I just posted a card using this set, too :)
I miss that you're not blogging as often as before, but I can see you're putting in a lot of time working on your coloring skills, and it's really paid off...your blending is just perfect!
I hope all is well...Hugs!
