This month on the Hero Arts blog the challenge is Keeping in Touch and Back to School. They also included a category for Making a Stationery Set. I have wanted to make a set of note cards for my Mother for quite some time. She will be 91 years old in October and doesn't have the ability to get out often. With the encouragement from my creative friends, especially Lin, I have completed two sets. I have been experimenting with masks ever since I cut the Peace Sign here.
I cut the mask for this set with Frisket Film and a Nestabilities die. I inked the area with Versafine, Spanish Moss, Versafine Toffee and my new favorite Encore Ultimate Metalic, Blue. I love the air brush effect. I then stamped the Hero Arts images with the same inks and partially embossed with Ranger copper embossing powder. Added the sentiment, also from Hero Arts, Enjoy the Moments. The sentiment was also inked with Versafine, Toffee. Finally, added brown pearls.
This set uses the same masking technique, but different inks. I used the Hero Arts set, Leaf Patterns, for stamping. Although it took a little more planning, waiting and continuing, I am happy with my sets. Thank you Hero Arts for inspiring me to do something I have never done before!
