This month’s challenge at the Inspiration Journal is Marvelous Masks and Spectacular Stencils. I recently created this piece using mostly Distress & Studio 490 products.
I started with a piece of mat board, I rounded the corners and cut a diamond mask with Eclipse Tape and dies. I colored the center with Mustard Seed Distress ink and the outer section with Shaded Lilac. I used Ranger Emboss It Dabber stamped through Studio 490 Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend stencil and then sprinkled on Broken China Distress Embossing Powder. After heating, cooling and rubbing off the release crystals, I stamped the flowers from Art Rules to frame the diamond with Deep Purple Archival Ink.
I stamped the lady and sentiment from A Flair for Art with black Archival Ink. I colored the image with Distress Markers, cut them out and used dimensional tape to adhere them to the background. I embellished with some items from my stash. I’ve since added a ribbon with my Tiny Attacher and hung the piece in my little art gallery corner.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope the week ahead is a good one for all of us!
