For You

Hi bloggers!  Here is a cute card with one of my personal favourite masks!  I started this card by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Honeycomb Haven embossing folder for texture.  Next I taped the Wavy mask to a piece of Duck Egg Blue card.  I used the Moonlit Sea Luna Paste through it with a plastic pallette knife.  I set it aside to dry well, then used the Double Stitched Circles to cut three circle shapes out of it.   I glued the outer circle to the background, then added mounting foam to raise the next smaller circle up slightly and the smallest circle was raised even more, giving a stepped up look to them.  I used the Shadowed For You sentiment cut out of white card with a black shadow and glued it in the centre circle.  I made three flowers using the Cosmos Flower die set.  The base was duck egg blue and the outer edge was cut in white, then assembled.  I added the flowers in opposite corners, then used the Magnolia Corner cut into accents pieces.  The card was completed with white and duck egg blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  7 3/4"  in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue. It's cold very wet and windy here in Lancashire what a change from this time last month so much sun for weeks and weeks, at least my new plants are really happy plus it will keep those that don't seem to understand how dangerous it is from going out without a care in the world!
So for happier brighter thoughts, how and where did you think about this design, it takes a great artists eye to put patterns and textures together like this, it's so pretty and tactile so shimmery and floral, I'm not confident with stencils - not that I've tried but my head doesn't feel confident so I'll leave it to you and our crafting friends that know what they are doing lol....

Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue,
I do like your colour scheme and the circles are great. Masks seem to be so popular at the moment. In the early days I was never happy when I tried using them, maybe I should give it another whirl and buy some new ones.!!
Keep safe and dry everyone.
Hugs xxx Pauline

Hi Sue, an almost nautical look to this lovely card. Love the combination of the masks and the Luna paste has a real shine to it. The Cosmos are so pretty and I am using mine a lot.


Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. What a really imaginative idea to die cut a piece of card that you have stencilled onto, I would never have thought of doing this. Thank you for giving us yet another idea. Love the card too.

A lovely design with lovely textures and great interest with the stepped up layers. You matched the circle layers perfectly, too. I adore the Luna Pastes and enjoy using them.
Unfortunately, I only have a few of them. Thank you for sharing. Hugs
