I took a piece of cardstock the same size as what I was using for the front of my card and cut an oval in it using my largest Spellbinder classic oval die. Then attached it to my white panel using removal tape on either side.
Next I proceeded to do my stamping and sponging before removing the mask.
Inks: SU old olive and pink pirouette
Stamps: SU Embrace Life and Stem Silouettes
Thinking of You card:
Inks: SU old olive and Delicata 'Golden Glitz'
Stamps: SU French Scrips and Autumn Leaf Prints
Winter Birthday card:
Inks: Tim Holtz distress inks ... broken china & tumbled glass, SU Soft Sky
Stamps: Penny Black 'Winter Sky' and the sentiment is Impression Obsession
"Eclipse" masking medium was used for the masking. Large sponge daubers were used for sponging.
THIS CARD on Heather's blog I thought perhaps it would be close to what Barb is looking for.
Inks: SU Almost Amethyst, ColorBox Rose Coral chalk ink
Stamps: SU 'Embrace Life', SU 'Heartfelt Thanks'
Accessories: black Galaxy marker (color in flowers), white Gelly Roll Pen (for accent on flowers), large sponge daubers
Lastly, is a card that using embossing & brayering. Here is a Link to Heather's card that I cased and she explains the steps that she took. I used different colors than she did on her card but followed her steps in creating it ... with the exception of the Masking Fluid ... I don't have any of that but will certainly be looking to purchase some ... she uses it on several of her creations.
Inks: SU River Rock, Wild Wasabi, Versamark
Stamps: SU 'Stem Silhouettes', Crafty Secrets 'Wildflowers' (dragonfly & sentiment)
Paper: SU River Rock, black
Sorry for such a long posting but I just couldn't help but share these creations with you today. I have a couple more that were inspired from another lady that I will share with you at the end of the week. Thanks so much for being patient with me while I boast a bit. LOL! I guess I've gotten away from actual stamping & techniques lately and it has certainly felt good to get 'inky' again. Hope you found some inspiration through this posting also! HAPPY DAY!
