Masking with Washi Tape technique and Blendabilities.

Last evening my friend and down-line Carol. stayed behind after the Thursday class
and we both had a play with a new technique, which featured in our
Stampin Up Impressions Newsletter (May/June 2014 )


We started off with a base card of Crumb Cake and used strips of Washi tape to form 
a diagonal striped mask.  We then sponged Whisper White ink onto the exposed Crumb Cake card.
Once dry we removed the washi tape, and you can see how effective this was.  We were most impressed!!
We used the Secret Garden Stamp set (retires this month eek!) for the flowers and leaves,
cut them out with the matching framelits
and then the fun began when we started colouring in!!
I have to confess this is my second attempt at these flowers, and I am quite pleased with them - 
but I know I still have far to go with using these fabulous alcohol pens!
I found it quite relaxing to colour in!
Anyhow - what do you think of this?  (Please be kind!)
