STAMPlorations August Challenge


  Do you remember this card? 
I created this card last August as I was the Guest Designer at STAMPlorations.

Well this month, they have asked to showcase my card again for this challenge:

Here is the new card I made for the August challenge casing my original card:


 I bought the STAMPlorations sentiment set called NOTEWORTHY a few months ago and have really made good use of it.   
I began by dripping some masking fluid along one side of my cardstock.  I did that in advance, so it had time to dry.  The masking fluid acts as a resist and is rubbed off after applying the paint medium. 
Then I sprinkled Brushos down the front of my card and sprayed with water to activate the paint.
 When that was dry, I die-cut the flowers from and glued them to my card front and stamped the sentiment using my MISTI.

All details for this month's challenge are HERE. 
I want to thank Shery and her great team for inviting me to come and play!
Please, please check out the amazing and gorgeous cards the DT has created.

 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  Hope you get a chance to play along.

Supplies:  stamp- STAMPlorations/ die- Memory Box/ Brusho/ Mini Mister/ Memento bl ink/ Masking Fluid

Love both cards Karen. Thanks for sharing how you use masking fluid. I ordered my Misti yesterday - yeah! A craft garage sale among my stamping group was very lucrative and our newer members got some great deals.

The first card has a very interesting composition, well-arranged text. The second card I love the effect brusho and its colors. Great cards.
hugs,
