Maskerade Day 3

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!


  1. I'll have to try your masking technique. Very pretty card!

  2. What a great idea! Rubber cement?! Very cool. And your design is lovely. Can't wait to see how you use this technique again! Bev

  3. Laura, I like your idea of leaving the flower white - I actually have something similar to that on my card-making to-do list. The white flower really stands out. Great job!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! It makes my day!
