Masking Technique with Superman!

Dear Crafters,

Following all the excitement of OnStage, today I am sharing a card that we made at my Masculine class last week.

I love the buildings in this stamp set, but having just the one layer of buildings, just didn’t seem to do my card justice, so I added many layers using the masking technique!

Most of the ladies just looked at me as though, “you have to be kidding”, when I showed them what we were about to make, especially with the fussy cutting around the character, but I think they actually were very impressed with their final works!

What do you think of this card?

Everyday Hero, Super Mum!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a Super hero card, but instead of the usual bright primary colours, I have used Sweet Sugarplum and more feminine colours to create a card for the super mum!

I love the street scene stamped across the bottom in coordinating ink.

I coloured the image using the Watercolour Pencils and AquaPainter, but I did also use the Wink of Stella clear brush to blend the colour of her cape!

The ruched ribbon was tied to the top in a knot to finish the card off.

Kiss Goodbye to MS

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a card that is a subject very close to my heart literally, as it is the demon that I live with every day, Multiple Sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system, interfering with nerve impulses within the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. It is characterised by sclerosis a Greek word meaning scars. These scars occur within the central nervous system and depending on where they develop, manifest into various symptoms.

I was first diagnosed in 2004, so I have been dealing with it for many years and up until the past couple of years I was doing fine. I will now embark on a change of treatment to monthly infusions, so I depending on how my body takes them, I may not be able to post quite as often as I would like, but please stay with me, as my craft and family is what keeps me going!!!

Today, I have a card which has the slogan “Kiss Goodbye to MS”. An initiative of MS Research Australia, the mission is to accelerate Australian research targeting the prevention, better treatments and a cure for MS.

The minute I saw the stamp set, Sealed with Love, I noticed the lips and knew I had to have this set to create my own cards for MS. It also had the word KISS, which is perfect for my sentiment. The black font I printed from my computer.

And check out my Everyday Hero wonder woman, she just says to me, we can beat this disease and it’s not going to define who we are!
