Fun with Masks

Now when I mention masks everyone assumes face masks! It’s a sign of the times I think and definitely the number one fashion accessory of 2020!

Today though we are using the stamping/papercrafty type mask. We do have a sweet pack of decorative masks in our catalogue however, for today, I wanted to show you something different. Masks can be made from all sorts of products. You can cut dies or punch shapes to create a mask using cardstock or window sheets.

For today’s project I’ve taken the Dandy Laser Cut Paper and used one of panels as my mask.

Just check out this Laser Cut Paper Pack ..

Some gorgeous elements in that pack to use for all sorts of projects. I’ve used the dragonfly panel as my mask today.

I cut a piece of white cardstock the same size as my mask. Using the new Blending Brushes I sponged Coastal Cabana all over keeping the mask in place.

How good did that turn out? I love that using the Blending Brushes you can get the ink into the little spaces and because the bristles are so soft they dont rip or tear the delicate mask.

Here’s the card I made using the background piece …

My masked piece is adhered to a Coastal Cabana layer then adhered to a White Notecard. The sentiment comes from the amazing Many Messages Bundle.

So what did I do with my ‘mask’? Well I sponged a little bit of Gorgeous Grape in the centre of the solid dragonflies and turned it into another card …

The panel was adhered direct to the Notecard using the multipurpose glue. This sentiment is also from the amazing Many Messages Bundle. That bundle really is a must have!

For a final touch I painted those solid wings with the gorgeous Clear Wink of Stella glimmer brush.

I hope you can see the glimmer. Sometimes it’s hard to capture it with the camera but it definitely sparkles!

I do hope I’ve given you some more ideas on what to use as masks and also how to get two cards from one lot of sponging!

Let’s go hopping …

Now it’s time to see what my crafty friends have made for you with their masks …
