FM116 Toes in the Water, Toes in the Sand...

Time for another Friday Mashup.  Lili has brought us masking at the beach.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the "Masking Technique".
  2. Create a project with some "Beach elements".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Beach'y project using Masking".
Initially I thought about masking stamp images to produce the illusion of depth.  My beach stamp sets are a bit cartoon-y, and I wanted something more realistic.  I started layout down masks without a real concrete idea of where I was going with it.  How do you think it came out?

I brayered the sky and water and sponged the beach.  I kinda like it in a abstract, watercolor (read: sloppy) kind of way.

Stamps: Tropical Party, Friendly Phrases; Paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White; Ink: Marina Mist, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, So Saffron, Black Stazon; Accessories: Hemp Twine, Brayer, Sponges, Circle punch, Post-It Notes, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

I think this came out great, Heidi! I love the more 'realistic' look - you've created quite the relxaing scene here. The knot in the hemp twine is just the icing on the cake.

Fabulous card Heidi! Love the brayered/sponged scenic strip you've created against the white background, and the overlapping sentiment is perfect!
