Masks at Artful Times

Over at Artful Times the challenge at the moment is to use masks and/or stencils.


For my entry I have used masks.  The large butterfly is created by inking through an aperture from Stamps Away Aperture Set 2 and the background is a Splodgeaway mask.  I can't find the name of it anywhere on the packaging but its an 8 x 8 frame and I just used parts of it.  The colours are Distress Inks in Salty Ocean, Pickled Raspberry and Peacock Feathers.  I have thrown drops of water all over and then sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist. The fairy stamps are Inkylicious and Sheena Douglass and the stars are Inkadinkado.  The sentiment is from a set that I think was free with a magazine ages ago.  I added pink pearls from my stash and lots of sparkle with Glamour Dust.  Please pop over to Artful Times to see the other fab entries and Design Team projects.  I have been trying to post this for a few days but I thought Blogger wasn't letting me.  It turns out its my computer that is the problem!  I am posting this on my husband's with no problem at all!  Hopefully I can sort it out soon, technology drives me mad when it doesn't do what I want it to!  I hope you are all having a lovely day - its bright and sunny here in Bournemouth.  Thank you so much for visiting, Take care, Christine xx

This is beautiful Chris, your masking looks amazing and I love the colours you have chosen which really highlights the fairies so well. My laptop stopped working for 2 days and it turns out that it was updating itself - technology and I are not the best of friends! Hugs, Anne x

Hi there Chris - what a pretty piece of artwork you have created this week. It has a very dreamy quality about it and I find it soothing to look at.
Sorry about the computer problems - it's so frustrating when things go wrong.
Thanks for joining us at Artful Times - Hugs, Neet (sorry I am so late) xx
