I know, I know. Where have I been?!
Happy belated Christmas to you all, and hope you’re enjoying this special season. As we stare down the oncoming New Year, I though I’d pop on with a couple of projects from the current issue.
I had the challenge of ‘masking’ in its basic form to create 6 projects.
This project was one of the more advanced ones. Stamping out larger images to create large masks and after stamping the images onto the base card, then sticking the masks over that and adding the distress inks.
You have to use plenty of repositionable adhesive to make sure the distress ink doesn’t leak under the masks and spoil the white trees. I’ve used the Lawn Fawn set ‘Into The Woods’ with some Distress Inks.

If you head out to your local shop that stocks the mag- you’ll find this one

It’s well worth a buy- you can see one of my projects on the front cover too!

I’ve never had such a large break from my blog- but it’s done me the world of good.
I’ve still been creating – but much much less.
Despite giving up demoing, I still have plenty to do! I’ll be popping on with some more magazine projects shortly plus details of a competition.

See you soon,
xx

    I got a copy when it first came out, loved all your projects too especially this one, the colours are so beautiful as are the stamps you used.

    I am happy that your blog break did you good and looking forward to your 2015 adventures.

    Have a fantastic New Year Keren, Love, Light & Hugs.

    Love that tall card, it’s just gorgeous and you’ve been missed, but I hope that it’s been a good break, we all need them from time to time!
