Entries for Technique Inspired Challenge 3

For Technique Inspired Challenge 3, the challenge was to do some masking on our layouts / projects!

Here are the entries i received for this challenge... This month we received 2 layouts from June! =)
"Quiet Moment" by June

I don't have the watermark resist ink (yet!) so I used 2 paper dollies as mask and silver maya road mist.

Close up of the masked area: I think i used the big dolly mask then the small dolly in the same location.

Love the masking effect and how it gives a subtle effect on the background which goes with the quiet moment photo. Great layering of masking!

"love" by June
I've tried stamping with my glimmer mist using the mask.

Feli says:
I love the technique she used! What a cool effect created on the layout.

family altered display

Here's my take on my own Technique Inspired Challenge 3. i did some layering of masking on the background chipboard...
As I didn't want to cover the chipboard I masked with photos, I decided to place an overlay above it for the photos and embellishments.
Included the masked butterfly I showed in the Technique Inspired Challenge blog entry...
Here's the masked layering I did... Did one layer of masking before the 2nd layer of masking of butterfly. Then I added glossy accent and stickles for texture.
Added some mini chipboard butterflies which i stickled...
Hope you like it and will try out the challenge! A yummy RAK awaits you!
Do also take note that the email to send your entries have been changed to happyscraps[at] . =)

Technique Inspired Challenge 3 - It's Masking Time!

Here's the Technique Inspired challenge 3. Here's the technique to inspire you... Let's do some masking on our layouts / projects! You can either do the usual way of masking or do masking with stamps! The challenge is to use this technique to inspire you to create a layout/project...

Here's a simple method of doing masking with stamps...
First, stamp on the surface using a Watermark Resist ink pad or Clear ink pad.
Next, just add glossy accent to the surface you have stamped. Wait for it to dry.
Add glimmer mist to the surface and remove the excess glimmer mist. Then you are done! You've just created a masked image using stamps! :) (Click on the image to get a closer look)
