It's the Weekend!!

Good Morning,

How are you all today? It's finally the weekend, I hope you all have something nice planned for the weekend.

If you live close enough why not call into the Ross PaperCraft Show where the SplodgeAway Team will be standing, demonstrating and lots of new products :-)

November 3rd. 2013
Rainton Meadows Arena, Mercantile Road, Houghton-le-Spring, Tyne & Wear, DH4 5PH. (10am-3pm)

Today we are showcasing the '2in1' mask projects. We all seem to collect lots of crafting goodies including masks so this blog is perfect to show you how you can combine masks on your crafting projects.

Kay has used the 8"x8" Flourish the Lot Mask and Vintage Birdcage to create this lovely card. I love the gold and green colour combination.

Thank yo Kay, check out Kay's Blog for lots more inspiration.

Claire Sweeney has produced this very vivid tag! Love It!

"To create my tag I spritzed it with dylusions sprays in lemon zest, bubblegum pink, postbox red, crushed grape and a little bit of black marble.  Once dry I added grunge paste through parts of the Cut Log Mask and when this was dry I used distress inks to give the grunge paste some colour and definition.  Next I used the Mask of Many Faces to add the images to my tag using distress ink and acrylic paint.  I inked around the edges of the tag with black soot distress and doodled a couple of lines around the tag to form a border.  To finish of the tag I added some red and clear pearls to the eyes and then added a double ribbon to the top.

Hope you like it :)

Well I definately like it Claire and I know you will all of loved it so call over to Claire's Blog.

Last but not least I would like to introduce our new DT Member:
'Liz Daniels'

If you call back next week we will have some more gossip on Liz but until then I will leave you with this fantastic Autumn card.

"Using Distress Inks I used the edge of the Fantasy Fairy StenSkape to create the colour on the card leaving a white centre panel. I applied mica over the inked area and then stamped over a leaf image, I re-applied the mica to leave a subtle effect. I used the Flower Creator to create 2 felt flowers. (TIP: I used glue dots to sandwich the felt together as glue marks) I created the leaves with the creator, inked and embossed. A sentiment was created on the computer and then  mounted onto a die cut."

Thank you Liz, what a fantastic card!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and see you all tomorrow,

Susan xx
