I was so excited to win last weeks challenge over at dear Lindas' StudioL3 especially as it will be just in time for my birthday, brilliant. Thank you so much Linda.
Challenge 19 is on Page 61 of the Compendium of Curiosities - Extreme Masking. So no expense spared with this one, I used the pull off top of an old Tissue Box, completed the technique then mounted it on a card that had been masked in the ordinary way. It wasn't until it was completed that I could see the real difference in the two types of masking......
The masks used were by Tim Holtz plus his distress inks, worn lipstick, dusty concord, weathered wood and peeled paint, finished off with some black paint dabber. I hope you like it as am not a natural cardmaker, but it wouldn't fit on a tag so had no choice........lol
There are already some brilliant creative examples of this technique over at StudioL3 not to mentions Lindas' terrific example, so if you get the time pop over and be amazed.
A few of you lovely crafters have shown an interest in my Art Classes and wonder why I get myself in a tizzy with my homework. Before I started Art Classes had never drawn a thing that you could recognise.........lol. Our tutor is totally brilliant and is now teaching us watercolour techniques and honestly I never knew there were so many.........dumb or what.......... so am showing one of my latest homework pieces, yep one eye at a time........please be kind and if you fall off the chair laughing can you do it quietly so I cannot hear you............
Thank you for popping in and giving me such great support and encouragement.
Take care, Annette x
