Just for You - Case Study Challenge #136
It's been ages since I played along over at CASE Study, but my buddy JJ is the muse this month, and I had a brainstorm on the way home from church so I thought I would whip up a card.
I used the Arrows mask from Studio Calico's Neverland kit, and added color using a foam tool and sponge daubers. The nice thing about this technique is that you don't have to be super neat unless you want to be. I have color bleeding into adjacent sections, and that is OK with me, and I extended the color above and below the mask too. This would look just as good very crisp and clean, but I thought I would go for a softer look so that it kind of fades out.
Also, you might look at the list of supplies below and think the colors don't look very true, and you'd be right. I don't have a sponge dauber/foam tool piece for every single ink I have (nor did I have the patience to meticulously mask all the sections today). Instead, I have daubers/foam pieces for color families. Usually I might try and dab out the color that's on it so I can get a more pure color, but for a card like this it doesn't matter as much, so I really didn't do much dabbing out.
The sentiment is from Jane's Doodles Doodle Flowers set.
Really quick and easy. Lots still to do this weekend: cleaning, crafting, and some hanging out too. Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Oh, and just for fun, you might have noticed that I've been taking most of my photos in a different location - it's in the kitchen, and it works pretty well (unless I waited too long to take the photo and it's dark out).....and this is what you don't see in the background of the photo area....the girls' crafting areas...the sad thing is that it might be cleaner than my area.....
