FM229 Masking Autumn Colors

Oh my, it's been a challenge to get into my stamping room this week with our newest member of our family arriving on Monday.

I feel like we have a very fast moving infant in the house.  

This week's Mashup is a color combination and masking.  I actually loaded the challenge photo into My Digital Studio to find which Stampin' Up colors may best fit.  I came up with So Saffron, Delightful Dijon, Not Quite Navy (retired), Night of Navy, and something between Basic Black and Early Espresso.  I adapted a little from there.

Using Freshly Made Sketches #206, I created a collage of images with the masking technique.  Next question: To go clean or go dirty?  Maybe somewhere in the middle.  I wanted to add some sparkle, but small little bits of it, so I sprayed my card front with adhesive spray and sprinkled a couple pinches of gold glitter (in my front yard, of course!).

This week's Mashup Challenge:

  • Use all 5 or 3 of the colors listed above.
  • Create a project using a Masking Techniques.
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project with the colors above and some Masking.
Stamps: For All Things; Paper: Island Indigo, Whisper White; Ink: So Saffron, Delightful Dijon, Island Indigo, Early Espresso; Accessories: Into the Woods elements, Gold Metallic thread, Adhesive spray.

Just had to say Congratulations on your new dog! Is it male or female, and what did you name it? I have a dog also and totally enjoy her. At first she was kind of naughty but now she's great. Doesn't matter if you go out for 5 min or 5 hrs, they're still excited to see you. Your card is nice too!

Debra, the new puppy is a girl named Nala. She is quite a handful at this stage, but they say it will go fast. Some moments, I'm hoping it does. :)

Hi Heidi, what an adorable addition to your family. A puppy seems to have a dozen legs and the ability to go in five different directions at the same time. When they stop, they frequently chew---so actually the running around stage is so much less destructive. But what they add to your life and family is priceless.

Love your masking. That oak leaf from the For All Things set worked out beautifully. I think its watercolour look lends itself well to the technique. Thanks so much for sharing.
