Once again, Woodware UK is sponsoring the challenge over at "The Mirror Cracked" blog. The theme is "masks", which could be actual masks or masking techniques. Since I've been really swamped this week working on samples for the October Catalog for Stampendous/Dreamweaver, I'm posting a previous card I'd made featuring the Stampendous Cling Blossom Beauty set. The focal point for this set is the simple face, to which you can decorate in any way that your creative heart desires. Not precisely a true mask, I chose to work in a more "global" way. I also decided to not go for traditional beauty as I truly believe that life's lessons add beauty to the soul which is emphasized through the eyes..."the window to the soul". I've used markers to color the face. The hair covering was created by "masking" off the face and ink-stenciling the Dreamweaver Waves and Dots stencil in blues and purples from the Tsukineko Splendor Circus pad. Kaleidascope embossing powder was sprinkled over the wet ink and embossed. A string of opalescent beaded trim was adhered along the hairline, with crystals down the center. A panel of vellum was stamped and embossed in black with the Cling Wander sentiment from Stampendous, and adhered over the card part way.
