The Mask

It is Day 10 for Random Act of Cardness Day and I (Kia) am here to talk backgrounds. On this card I decided to use a lighter background, where I would normally make it darker, especially given I am using texture paste. But not today.

Today we have Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink with Distress Texture paste in Matte put through a handmade stencil. You know those postcard size pieces of mail you will get from companies advertising which have a plastic like finish. That is what I used to cut my Penny Black Geometric die. The paste slides right off when you apply it, going where I want it to go.

Once finished with the paste I set the card aside to dry. I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Warm Breeze on Vellum paper and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.

Next up I die cut the masks using Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers, using BG32 and BG09. On the larger mask I used both colours and on the small mask the BG32.

I then styled the masks and attached foam squares to the back of both.

To finish up I secured the vellum piece using vellum tape, which does not show through the vellum. I then attached the Masks and added a splattering of sequins.

A bit of a change for me, but I am pleased with the results. I hope you enjoy this card as well.
