Mask-erade - Online Card Classes Day 3

Day 3 of Mask-erade by Online Card Classes was all about liquid masking techniques and products. I don't own any of the frisket or liquid art masking products but I do own good ole Elmer's Rubber Cement and as Jennifer McGuire says it works just as well if not better than the rest and is CHEAP!

Gotta love cheap!

So I got busy with some Elmer's Rubber Cement and Ranger Distress Watercolor Paper and Ranger Distress Inks and my Copics.

For this first card, I hand drew a balloon and used the ERC to mask around the outside and water colored the inside using my Ranger Distress Inks. I added a little Copic marker around the balloon once it was dry and added the string with Copic Black.  I finished it off with Crystal Effects.


For this second one I used a bird from Stampers Anonymous Bird Crazy and colored it with Copic Markers then masked it and created the background with Ranger Distress Inks.   

For the other four I used a Plaid stencil and the Rubber Cement to create the butterflies, then used Ranger Distress Inks to create the watercolor backgrounds.

I used Heidi Swapp Color Mist in White on a couple of these cards.

The stamp sets I used include: Simon Says Stamp Absolute Delightful, Hero Arts Thank You for Being My Friend and My Favorite Things New Beginnings. 

Happy Crafting
