Masking For PaperArtsy

Good evening and happy Saturday. I'm still without my computer, but as Chris has gone to London for the weekend (in the snow brr) I've 'borrowed' his laptop. 
The latest challenge at PaperArtsy is to use a mask. This is what I've made.


I'm still enjoying playing with alcohol inks so I knew I wanted to use these. I've die cut masks and put them onto my glossy card, then added the ink with a dropper and a straw.

Then I stamped the butterflies in the spaces that the masks left.

I love these betterflies.

This time of year is really busy for me for birthdays and anniversaries, so I've not put a sentiment on yet as I'm not sure where it's going.
This was great fun AND I have a card at the end of it.
Have a crafty weekend, (or enjoy the rugby) and thanks very much for looking x

    1. Thank you Mary, I don't know if this would work on a canvas as they are alcohol inks so need to be on glossy card so that they travel. Give it a go and let me know if it works out :-) xx
