More Watercolour for Cardmakers – Masking fluid


This will be quick because I love you guys but it is 22 and sunny out there and I am on a day off!! Dizzy with anticipation, I am! I think everyone, North America wide anyway, will agree it was a long dreary winter and I can’t wait to get out of hibernation and enjoy the good weather!

I am still working on some of the earlier techniques before I attempt the freehand stuff. This card was made by printing out a sentiment block from the internet (I didn’t have the stamp I wanted) and then using masking fluid to cover it over before layering on my watercolours. After the paint dries, you just peel off the masking “skin” and you are left with a lovely white background in the middle of your vibrant colour. Cool, huh?

Day 2 masking

Then I did a little splattering and dropletting (yupp, going with it, real word or not!) and adhered it to a 4.25×5.5 base in a coordinating colour. And c’est tout!

I’m out folks, that sunshine is calling me! Enjoy your day whatever it brings!
