Masking

I don't really know whether this is worth showing, because the scan is quite poor and doesn't clearly show one shoe behind the other. This card is for the RSC012 on Carolyn 's. I used one of my favourite stamps by 'My Sentiments Exactly'. Firstly, I stamped a piece of white card that had a gold shimmer with tattered rose distress ink and clear embossed it - which left patches that I then dabbed with Brilliance galaxy gold, going over the top again with clear embossing. I then stamped one shoe image with Stazon blazing red and then used a masking paper to stamp the other shoe behind it . (The only problem was that because the stamp is wood mounted I couldn't see exactly where I was placing it, but, fortunately, it went where I wanted it.)


Perhaps a photo, instead of a scan, would show it better (might have a try in the morning).

Apart from this, over the past few days I've still been trying to sort my craft stuff ready for having our spare room fitted. I did some 4 x 4 pages for fat books on Paper n Lace - for five different people in the group - and posted them off today. I forgot to take scans of them, so I can't show them.

I've got my 'What a day!' CJ back - it is beautifully done by my friends in the green team on Carolyn's - thank you so much, everybody. When I've got time (which might have to be after the room's done) I'll put pictures on here. Actually, I'm the only one to have their CJ back because someone did their bit early, so I might even leave it till everyone else gets theirs, which will be two or three weeks' time.

Sorry - I think that's enough waffle!
