weekend again

Morning All
                   Yesterday  my mate Kathyk (aka the Purple Princess) came round and we spent a very good morning crafting. Nothing like crafting with a good friend. We both wanted to try something new and Kathy brought some masking fluid. We both had made some backgrounds the day before so they would be dry.

The backgrounds with blending solution

I dabbed the masking fluid onto the background and then let them dry. When they were dry and with a darker distress  ink went all over the card and again gave it time to dry.

When they were dry the blending solution just peeled off  [you have to make sure they are dry or the card just rips] to reveal the background underneath, Not sure I will be doing it again .

While Kathy and I were together we decided to try the Joseph coat technique here and I have to say I enjoyed this more

I think this owl looks quite scary.
