Masks for Tando

Over on the Tando Creative Blog this week we have all been playing with masks...Tando  have a fantastic range of masks available and all are fantastic with various mediums...today I've used the Andy Skinner burning rubber 12" x 3" mask to create this card...


I placed the mask to the left hand side and used tape to hold it in place whilst I inked with distress ink....I then cut some letters and the 21 on my cricut and then coloured in using the same distress ink, doodled around the edges and stamped with a crackle stamp.....washi tape and a rusty old key was added to the front...

Unfortunately Josh's 21's wasn't the birthday we would have liked for him.  We ended up in A&E until 3am after my OH collapsed at the restaurant and was rushed to hospital in an ambulance (he appears to be ok now) - poor ol' Josh - mind you we had a "take 2" yesterday which didn't end up in A&E!! lol

Love the card that you made. I have a couple of masks but don't seem to be able to get them right yet--must try harder lol

So sorry to hear what happened at the birthday celebrations, hoping your OH is ok now.

Loving your grungey/grungy (never know if it has an 'e' in that LOL)card.

I must practise more with masks - considering we stencilled our bedroom years ago, with a hanging garden theme and greek columns and made some of the stencils myself - I should do this better, but have lost the knack lately :(
Like what 'Chrissies' said, I must try harder too ....Gill x

Oh dear, I fully exepectd that sentence to finish with Josh having a problem - so sorry to hear DH provided the drama this time around, hope he's feeling much better. The card looks fab though, nice to see a nod to the old "key to the door" too!

Hope OH is ok now Carol, how sad and always scary when things like that happen. I love your card, beautifully done my lovely, perfect for the occasion and I'm sure Josh loved it. Lol, I had a play with that mask again this morning, can see it becoming a staple stash item!! Thank-you so much for your sweet visit too, much appreciated.
Huge hugs x x x x
