Mask-erade day #2

Sharing couple of cards using masking technique for Mask-erade Online Card Class.

I love Jennifer's technique using a big die, die cut as mask to stamp. She uses both negative and the postive of the die cut to make two cards. I really loved how her cards looked. So here is my version of Jennifer's technique.
This is the negative as the mask.

And this one using the positive as the mask.

Positive masking card

I have used the biggest die from Wplus9 Heart Stax die set to die cut my mask. I then adhered the positive die cut on one panel and the negative on the panel. I used More fresh Cuts stamp set also from Wplus9 to stamp using second generation stamping using distress inks and colouring with waterbrush.  I then simply stamped the sentiment from Strictly Sentiments 5 from Wplus9 using Versafine Black ink. Finally accents with Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Love the soft watercoloured look.  Here are both the cards together.

Mask-erade Day #1

I signed up for the Mask-erade online class

I played along day #1 of the class. I have always loved Laura's rainbow cards using masking technique.
Her cards are amazing! Swoon! Drool! lol! So far I have been a bit scared trying out her technique but after watching her video at the class, I gave it a try today. Here is my card.

Happy Birthday card2

I am so thrilled with how it turned out. I LOVE this technique. And how quick and easy to create and give such a huge impact.You will see more rainbow coloured card using masking technique from me :) Thanks Laura for sharing the technique and for the fantastic video as well.

The die cut and sentiment is from Winnie & Walter. The die is called In A Word: Happy Cutaway and sentiment is from The Big, the Bold and Happy stamp set. I then used Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I have another card share for day #1 but for now this is it. I am feeling much better today. Fever is under control and sneezing bouts have stopped. Throat is buggered but as long as my eyes are not watering and I can focus, I can get around doing work. Hate not able to do anything. Anyway, I am on the road to getting better.

Thanks for stopping by today!

No line copic colouring! First time!

Hello! Welcome back. 

I have a special card to share with you. I played with Penny Black's new release stamp set today and attempted no line copic colouring for the first time. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. Here is the card.

Way Cool! card 1

I stamped this cute image of the boy kicking the soccer ball from Way Cool stamp set from the new release Penny Black using second generation Flannel Gray memento ink. Then coloured with copic markers. Because the stamped image is second generation grey, the outline is so light that it blends with the colours. I have used copic fineliner to highlight some areas like the facial features, the ball, boots, lace etc. Here is a closeup!

This is a one layer card. I liked it as it is and so I did not add any pattern papers or embellishment to the card. Not bad for the first time attempting no line copic colouring huh!

This is the Way Cool stamp set from Penny Black I have used on my card.
