Good morning All. Here I am bleary eyed as we have had awful storms during the night and it was very humid as well as noisy. It is still rumbling in the background and today Prince Charles and Camilla are visiting Bridlington. They are even going to a local fish and chip shop for lunch. I think they would be better staying at home and going to see their new grandson--I know I would be doing that. Thank goodness I am not royalty and I can just do my own thing
Right down to business--
At Artful Times this time the theme is masking. Not something I do very often and now I know why lol. I found it very difficult and I think it was mostly because I chose the wrong main stamp and it took me ages just to cut out the shape to mask it.
Not sure this will ever be used for anything other than a test.
All the stamps are from Joanna Sheen-the main one is Hellebore. and the other in the background are from the Back to Nature set.
I did the stamping and masking then coloured in with Promarkers. Then cut out the whole thing to make another mask so that I could use it to create a background
For the background I used various shades of distressed ink and some bubble wrap.
I then stuck the stamped image onto the page. I could have just done a normal background but it was a masking challenge after all .
The next bit of the post is my tag this week for Tag Tuesday where the theme is fish
This is my tag and it was inspired by a Teeshirt that Vic got for his birthday. It is made by Weird Fish and they do have some great designs-wonder if they will send me a free one for advertising :)
It is creased cause I rescued it from the ironing pile--it's back in there now waiting with the other stuff.
Thanks for visiting Jumbled Crafts
Love Chrissie x
