Spirit by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! I'm here to share a card today using masks :)

 


1. Cut a circle mask out of card using a die cut and stipple Distress Ink in spiced marigold using a shaving brush or stipple brush.


2. Cut two more circular masks in smaller sizes and colour the larger one with Distress Ink aged mahogany.


3. Colour the smaller one with Distress Ink vintage photo and before you remove it stamp the Retro square background from Neil in Archival sepia over the top.


4. Because I got some stray ink on the base card I used the positive circular masks to cover what I had already done and stippled Distress Ink tea dye all over the base card.


5. Keeping the two smaller masks in place and removing the larger one I put the original large open mask back again and stamped the Dance Dictionary background through it in Distress Ink spiced marigold.

6. Remove all the masks and stamp the female Free your soul image by Donna in weathered wood and the wording from the same set in Archival black.


I do like a bit of masking fun, hope you liked it too :) See you again soon!
xoxo Sioux
