Online Card Classes - Mask-erade! Day 2

Hello Friends,

Those very talented and gorgeous ladies have another Online Card Class for us :)!  It's all about masking techniques, something I'm fairly familiar with but it's still nice to take the class to see how those ladies interpret the different types of masking that we can do.  It also spurs me on to craft outside of my normal style!

I'm starting a day late, I was so involved in my Cameo Silhouette yesterday that I didn't manage to make a card for yesterday's class but I will try and catch up next week, as it was certainly an inspiring day.

The card I'm sharing today is just one idea, Kristina used embossing paste.  She masked off a section for her sentiment, put a stencil over it and stenciled through with three different colours of embossing paste.  I only used two colours on my card!

I have had to dry this with my hair dryer.  Trimming the edges wasn't easy either, as I'd have liked to have done that tomorrow, but I used a piece of wax paper between the image and my trimmer to guard my delicate (almost set) embossing paste to guard it!

Any way, here it is....

..... definitely not my usual style but I'm pleased with it and we all love giraffes in this home and I've had the stencil in it's new packet for far too long ;)!

If you want to learn more about using Masking in your card making, the link to the class is just over on the right of my blog!

Thanks for popping by today and happy crafting.

  1. Great card! Love the two tone of the stencil.

  2. Super cool "giraffe" card :-)

  3. I love the giraffe theme to the card and I know a few folks who would adore receiving this as a birthday card.
