As the post title states, today I'm way out of my comfort zone with a one layer card involving masking and inking - doesn't sound that intimidating but it certainly wasn't without the fear factor for me!
The challenge over at Stampotique designers challenge blogspot is to do a one layer card and I chose to use one of my Stampotique rubber stamps for this (although not a requirement for the challenge) - I used Chilly by Jo Capper-Sandon and stamped him twice so I could use one for the mask. With that in place, I also covered the top and bottom of the card with card masks, leaving just a small strip showing which I sprayed with Dylusions inks. I removed the masks and coloured Chilly with my Copics and then inked through a Dylusions stencil to get the 'snowflakes' - I also inked through the word snow, cut with my Cameo, using black and silver inks to get the effect shown below -
I know it may sound as if I was making a lot of fuss about nothing but I don't really feel comfortable when there isn't a lot of room for error - you can't cover up any mistakes with another layer on this! That said, I was pretty happy with the end result - one or two little things are niggling me but I'm certainly not to going to highlight them!!!
I would also like to put this in for the challenges at http://challengeupyourlife.blogspot.com/ (christmas in summer)
