Today's card features a new technique from the MASKerade online class. We learned how to use liquid masking to cover our image and create a background around it. There are lots of different mediums you can use for this technique, but I used rubber cement.
I stamped my image first, then covered it with rubber cement. After it had dried, I was able to create the pretty watercolor wash over the whole panel, without worrying about the flower getting color on it. There were a few spots where I didn't have a thick enough coat of rubber cement, and some color seeped through, but I was able to scratch it away with a craft knife, and no one can tell!! I used distress ink in fired brick, seedless preserves and worn lipstick. The PTI sentiment was heat embossing in white after the panel had dried.
I was really happy with the way this turned out, and think I will be using this technique again!
I am entering this into Darlene's challenge over at Live Love Cards, where the technique is watercolor!
Thanks for stopping by!
