Masking technique

I am trying my hand in making CAS cards. I have tried masking technique in this card. I used flowers from Altenew stamp set Beautiful day.

I drew a circle since i wanted the image arranged in an arch. I stamped the flower image on Neenah cardstock, masked it to stamp the leaf so that it was behind the flower. then I masked the leaf so that I could stamp the bunch of flowers. I stamped the image lightly to color them using no line coloring technique.






I used Copic markers to color and shading and highlights done with Derwent water color pencils. I did not have good color pencils and Derwent has bright color shades. 


I cut the circle and around the image to make a window. Layered the window with embossed cardstock. Added sequins to add a bling to the card. Stamped and embossed the sentiment from the set and layered it with black cardstock. Here is the completed card.




The color inspiration was from Aletnew March challenge : From Places Abroad - France

No line coloring

I was inspired by Marika's video of no line coloring with flower stamp from Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set.

My first attempt on this type of coloring. I used Magnolia stamp from Altenew. I stamped a second generation stamp on Neenah cardstock and colored with distress inks - Peacock feathers and salty ocean.

I didn't get a bright darker shade for contrast. So used Derwent inktense watercolor pencils for highlighting.Here is the final shaded one.


 The contrast is not so defined since my lighter shade should have been still lighter. I lightened a bit with Derwent inktense white pencil....



Thank you for stopping by. Cheers!
