It's been a whiles since I've done a tutorial - but I had such fun creating this card, that I thought I'd share the process with you:
I made it for a friend.....I had worked out the words, so used some old paper to created them:
Waste not, want not & all that!
As for the umbrella. I DO have a silly [Sillhouette] machine.
I also have a computer to find images.
But I'm a LAZY scrapper.
So I sketched an umbrella that looked vaguely like one, and simply cut out a template using old photo copy paper:
As you can see above, then I have taped up around the shape that I'd cut out. That is then my 'secondary' mask.
Initially, I laid my umbrella over the card stock & sprayed on the orange Dylusions ink:
I blotted it off with some paper towel, BEFORE I removed the mask.
Next I used the paper with the umbrella cut out of it, and sprayed on the blue Dylusions mist:
It didn't cover all my card, so I had to use some more scrap paper so it didn't 'contaminate' the orange I'd already sprayed on the card base
I ended up with this:
It splashed out a little, but not too bad.
Luckily I have a little tear shaped punch, so I added some 'rain drops' and my sentiment...
...a bit of outlining to define the edges & that's it!
You could do this with any simple shapes or die cuts that you have in your stash.
I really like the 'masking' off technique.
If you used plasticised card [eg: that you get with embellished packs, or even clear plastic] then you'll have re-usable masks, too!
Hope this gives you some scrappy inspiration ~ Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
