Liquid Masking

I have been looking forward to today's lesson on liquid masking at Online Card Class Mask-erade!  I knew that it was a product that I probably wasn't using enough.

One of the things I like about these classes is forcing me to go outside of my comfort zone.  I took an image that I had already colored and applied Dick Blick Liquid Frisket.  (Keeping my fingers crossed that the masking wouldn't impact the didn't)

This is what he looked like partway through the process.
I then proceeded to play.  I smooshed Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks on the background; stamped with Tumbled Glass and then added some stenciling with Pumice Stone.  I need some more practice on mixing colors and patterns but I think the result is fun.  I picture the bear floating through a jumble of emotions thinking about the person that he misses!

Thanks for looking...back to getting inky!
