Mask-erade Online Card Class - Day 1




Hi everyone,

A quick post to share a card I created for the newest Online Card Class, 'Mask-erade' ~ On Day 1, Laura Bassen shared her technique for ink blending with masks. So, I grabbed my Avery Elle Rounded Diamonds dies and created this card:




I thought it would be fun to ink this pattern on an angle, and die cut the SSS word to include most of the pattern. As you can see, orange was a thorn in my side, but after four attempts (this card was #5), I decided to move forward. I heat embossed the remainder of the sentiment, and added a row of small pearls just for fun...and that was it!

I've been working on other cards using techniques from the class, but we've had overcast skies for the past several days, and I have to wait. (I took this pic last week).

I would like to enter this card into this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge for the theme 'Anything Goes' ~

 

So, that's it for me...I hope everyone is having a great day ~ Thanks for stopping by,

Thank you so much for all the sweet comments lately on my blog! To answer your question about the background on my ice cream sundae, I used Copics and made tiny dots :) ((Hugs)) Kay :)
