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 coloring...it 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!

Stamps:  Penny Black Up and Away (bear...the girl accompanying him is charming!), Impression Obsession Cover a Card Rolling Waves, Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler
