Masked Flower Tutorial0
I am going to show you how to mask an image on your card and watercolour too.
The products I used:
- Slate Grey Smooth Card 240gsm
- White Card Super Smooth 250gsm
- Black Plain Card 250gsm
- Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm
- Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm
- Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml
- Stick it! Removable Adhesive Roller 8mm x 10mm
- watercolour paint
- colouring pencils
- scrap paper
To make the card base I used Slate Grey Smooth Card 240gsm cut down and folded in half to make my base. I then used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm that I cut down for my card front. After that I stamped my image onto the white super smooth card. I then got a piece of scrap paper and stamped the flower again. This will be your mask. I glued this onto the stamped flower on my card front using Stick it! Removable Adhesive Roller 8mm x 10mm, as this will easily peel away after.
The next step is to make your splattered background. I used some black watercolour paint and some brown paint. I mixed this into the water and with the tip of my brush I used my thumb to make the splattered background. Once this was dry I peeled away the mask and coloured the stamp in with my pencils. You can use anything you like to colour the stamp. Once your colouring is complete you need to make your greeting. I heat embossed a sentiment onto some Black Plain Card 250gsm. I then stuck this down using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. To add the finishing touches I used some twine and added a few sequins. I glued the sequins down with some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml, this glue is brilliant for sequins. They don't come off which is great.
I hope you have fun creating some masked cards you can always keep your masked image too, this will save you time if you need it again.
