Fun With Masks!

I just got some new Tim Holtz masks so I thought I'd get them out and play a little this weekend. Couple them with the Heidi Swap masks and you can really get some cool effects. I like the grunge of the 'Time" tag. That was a fun one to work on. Any chance I can get to incorporate my favorite Paper Artsy images cannot be denied! This was a take on Tim's November Challenge. The green tag has a much more damask feel to it. I used color washes for the background in a similar manner Tim used the ink pads in his challenge. I
always have a spritz bottle of water mixed with gum arabic and gold pearl-ex handy, so that is what I used for both tags to mix the background colors on the craft sheet. Crackle paint on the grungeboard was highlighted with some rub-n-buff to give it a nice patina. The final tag I did quite some time ago for a colaborative book swap. I used Paper Artsy images again and the butterfly girl came from A time To Stamp. Her wings are done up with Twinkling H2Os for a nice sparkle. These were a fun stress releaser
for an afternoon!
