Tando Wednesday

and this week we are "MASKING" - there are different forms of masking - you can stamp your image onto your main piece, be it an atc, twinchie, inchie, arch, card etc, and then make yourself a mask by stamping the same image out onto a post-it note and then use that to cover your original stamped image, you can then stamp around and over to create extra depth to your piece.

There are also lots of masks out on the crafty market too,  Tim Holtz has some fab mask's available, and also blank sheets so that you can die cut your own....or stamp... your own...

This is my piece for this week:-



I have stamped the girl image onto a wavy arch and then created my own mask and covered them over.  Using a pale blue distress ink I've then coloured the arch before laying a Tim Holtz mask over and then adding a darker blue ink...I've then added a further mask with a deeper blue.....I then stamped a text stamp with brown ink over the arch.  The girl mask was then lifted and the girls coloured in using distress inks....

A domino was coloured using the blue distress ink, mask added and a deeper blue over the top - then a stamped phrase was added.

Pop on over to the Tando blog and see what Joanne has created....

Fab piece Carol, I love the way the domino is suspended with the jump rings and the layered masking looks great!

Gorgeous as always Carol, your creativity never ceases to impress me. Perhaps we could call you the "Duchess" of Distress?! ;) Big hugs xxx
