Make it Mini by Kay Foreman

This week we are showcasing some of the mini masks, Thanks to Kay for this gorgeous sample using the hearts and butterflies.

For this project I have used  SplodgeAway 6x6 Art Nouveau mask and SplodgeAway Mini hearts and butterfly masks.
6x6 piece of SplodgeAway Easy Ink card
6x6 card blank
8x8 Elegance card stock from SplodgeAway
Distress Inks in worn lipstick,seedless preserves and peacock feathers
Dylusion ink sprays in Vibrant Turquoise, Bubblegum pink and crushed grape
Diamond Sparkle stickles
Pink and silver pearl makers.

To begin I sprayed the Elegance card stock with all 3 Dylusion Ink sprays randomly and then when dry placed the heart and butterfly mask onto the card and embossed with embossing machine, cut out and shaped with my hands to give dimension.
I then placed the Art Nouveau mask onto the Easy Ink card and embossed through embossing machine. I kept the mask in place and them using the 3 Distress Inks coloured over the mask being careful not to get ink onto centre piece.
I then positioned the hearts and butterflies and secured with pinflair glue. Once glue dried I then used the Diamond Sparkle Stickles to highlight the body of the butterfly and put dots on hearts. Note that the stickles takes on the colours of the Dylusion Inks below. To finish I then made trails from the butterflies with the silver pearl maker and dots around completed card with pink pearl maker. The work is now ready to be mounted onto the card blank with your preferred glue.

Thank You for taking the time to look.
Happy Crafting
