Well Hello Thursday! which means, it’s LauraJane:)).  As promised, from last week, I am sharing the second Masked Background using Zen Floral stamps and coordinating Honeycuts..

As a recap, I started with half of  8.5 x 11″ CS, masked with Zen Floral Honeycuts and inked with shades of yellow distress inks. I then cut it in half again giving me 2, A2 sized card fronts to work with.




Here is what I finished with last week:

  • Now, I took the remaining  unfinished side and inked waves of Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, more Mustard Seed and some Carved Pumpkin Distress inks.LJs masked2
  • Flicked some water over the top and let that dry.
  • To get more of a mixed media feel, I took the SMILE stamp set, removed the SMILE stamp image, and inked all the small words directly on the acetate holder with Rusty Hinge.
  • Then randomly stamped  the words onto the background.iLJs masked2
  • Removed the masks
  • Inked the coordinating mages from Zen Floral in Imperial Purple VersaFine.

  • I  thought  the masked areas were TOO white, So decided to lightly ink Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry over the top to tone the white down….not too sure this was a good idea:/

To finish the card:

  • Trimmed the cardfront down with Stitched Rectangle dies and matted it on coordinating shade of CS.
  • Wrapped copper thread around the lower end in a RAY fanning to the right.
  • Cut SMILE Honey Cut from Black CS and adhered it to the Thread area with Tombow Mono.
  • Stamped, with Imperial Purple VersaFine,  three images from Zen Floral on white CS and used the Coordinating HoneyCuts to make a simple arrangement below the SMILE.. some foam tape gave it a bit of dimension.
  • Mounted everything onto a A2 sized cardbase.
  • Sprinkled  Autumn Sunset  across the front…the tiny stars seem to stick with static on their own…the sequins are glued with Tombow Mono.
  • Stamped the sentiment on white CS and placed it on top of the flower arrangement…adding foam tape where it extends out from the flowers.
