Mask-erade Day#3

Second post for today. My first post for Winnie & Walter is HERE.

I played with masking fluid yesterday using Debby's technique at Mask-erade Online Card Class.

It was so much fun. Got addicted to it just practicing making backgrounds. But I was so impressed with Debby's card on her blog that I definitely wanted to CASE her card. Here is my take on Debby's card using masking fluid and watercolouring.

The Zig Real Brush pens are great for watercoloring. I get so much control over where I want my colours to pool and where I want them washed out. Just love them. I can also blend colours with ease.

Freehand drawing with masking fluid definitely need practicing. My fluid was watery and I kind of got some big blobs but with practice, I was able to get some thin lines.

 I again have to practice various patterns but imagine the possibilities of make you own background. Love the idea. I also like the idea of flicking the masking fluid and sponging inks. The white specs on the coloured background will look beautiful. Anyway, I am enjoying the Mask-erade class as you can see. Hope you are too.

Beautifully done. My masking fluid is very thick and gluggy so not sure how to do this technique. Love your design

So gorgeous and fun! I was trying not to get on the Zig color brush pens bandwagon, but the colors and effects are so pretty!
