Coggish Frame Splodge-A-Mask

By Karen Wright 

I hope you’re all enjoying the new SplodgeAway Blog and are taking inspiration away with you, this week I’m using the Coggish Frame SplodgeAway Mask and this is how I made it.

Taking a piece of 7  ½ x 7 ½ die cuts with a view card stock, lay down the mask, take a natural sponge and dab your chosen colour ink through the mask, on this occasion I chose big and juicy birthday. Distress the edges with the same colour ink, that’s your background complete.

The centre piece

Cut a piece of 4 x4 patterned paper. I’ve used Making Memories, distress the edges using Big and Juicy ink and SplodgeAway  Blending Mat.

Using a paper piercer, pierce the centre to give you room to get the tip of your scissors through, cut diagonally into the corners make sure to stop  about 2 cms from edges, tear some of the centre paper and roll towards the edges to make a centre frame.

Ink up your chosen image, I’ve used  Crafty Individuals CI 202, stamp onto coloured card or distressed/ brayer background, place this directly on your background, then mount your frame with 3D foam over the top.

To finish add twine and a metal making memories washer, then chose 2 coordinating colours of bias binding and make a creased bow, add 2 decorative pins and a button to finish, I always add a drop of glossy accents to the points of the pins to avoid any nasty accidents.

Mount it on an 8 x8 scalloped card from Suzicraft.

Lo and behold not a drop of stickles in sight!

Enjoy your creativity
