Masculine Mask

Project By Annette Lee

With Father's Day looming, the panic sets in when it comes to making cards for the men in our lives. Hopefully this will give you a little inspiration. I just love my SplodgeAway Mat and it has definitely earned it's place on my craft table.

Materials Used

SplodgeAway Mat
SplodgeAway Masks : Jimbo Machine & Trellis
SplodgeAway Easy Ink Card
Cosmic Spray Inks (2 colours)
Darkroom Door Stamps / Archival Black Ink
Distress Inks: Scattered Straw / Black Soot

To make, set up a spray box and spritz your card stock with your choice of Cosmic Spray Ink and allow to dry or speed it up with a heat gun.

Next run the card through your Grand Calibre and emboss with the trelis mask and trim to size.

Lay you Jimbo Machine Mask onto the centre of the card and spritz with another colour ink.Leave the mask in place to dry.

When dry transfer the card and Jimbo Machine Mask onto your SplodgeAway Mat and use complimentary DI and deepen the shading around the mask. At the same time blend around the edges with Black Soot. 

On a spare piece of Easy Ink Card stamp your focal image. Use DI to lightly colour the image, mat onto black card.

Add your sentiment and stamped image to the corner and finish by matting the whole card onto black card and attach to your card base.

Now I'll let you into a secret - next week we'll be asking you to show us your creations and there's a rumour of a GIVEAWAY.

See you tomorrow
