It's been a while since we got together.
October is already more than half over, and I'm still waiting for McIntosh apples to hit the grocery store. I like to bite into a crisp and juicy one while watching the sunset deepen from our kitchen window.
Last time I showed you some of my cardmaking using masking tape.
There's nothing quite like it for creating one-layer cards.
Below, I started with a pre-folded watercolor card and created a frame with masking tape.
***I take out some of the stickiness by sticking it to myself a few times!
Inside the frame, I stamped this discontinued flower from Hero Arts, using watercolor pencils. After stamping, I deepened shadows and added a loose background with watercolor pencils and a brush...not using too much water.
I added a bit of calligraphy for the complete card. This was a birthday card for my cousin's daughter.
I did pretty much the same thing here with this rose stamp, a new one from Hero Arts, adding a wash of blue and yellow around the flower.
What's your favorite way to mask?
