Let me first start by saying a big THANK YOU for all the lovely comments I received on my post yesterday, and am so glad you liked what you saw, it boosted my confidence no end. We all get days I am sure when things do't quite go as planned craft wise.
Onto today. This morning I was watching Ali Reeve, and I thought, I have that mask, I might do something with it. Anyway, one of my long standing friends (too many years to mention!) and who lives in Wales was on my mind too for some reason, and as I was looking at the mask, I made up a little verse in my head.
I am no poet, and I hadn't tried the technique before either, so it was a case of anything could happen!
Enough waffle - this is what I came up with:
Originally, I laid the mask onto white card, pressed Versamark through it and then used Cosmic Shimmer 'Iced Blush' mica powder, thought it looked quite pretty but it had too much white behind it, so I did the same thing but on black card, forgetting that it would change colour!! Hence it is now Blue! lol. The backing paper is from the Chronology range, and I just went round the edge with black soot. The sentiment I did on my laptop and then inserted the heart. This I cut out using Spellbinders Stately Circles and inked it with Spun sugar distress ink. A gem on each point and a couple of butterflies to finish it off.
Just in case you can't see the verse clearly, it says:
Whether you're near
or whether your far,
You'll be my friend
wherever you are
I'm off now to pop this in the post to her.
Till next time ................
