Watery Wishes

https://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/ & Just Add Ink #594…Masking!

Having checked out the Less is More blog, I decided to enter a card into the current challenge. It gives me an opportunity to practice doing CAS cards, which are not my forte. As well because I used masking it also fits the challenge at Just Add Ink.

A book I’ve just read had an interesting image on the cover as well as at the beginning of each chapter and I’ve been wanting to try something similar ever since. Instead of a boat I chose the tail of a whale from a Hero Arts kit I’ve had for a while. First I made a mask so I could do the circle only then I stamped the tail. Then I added some masking tape across the middle after I had masked off the tail, for the sunshine, which I sponged on using Scattered Straw Distress Ink. Using the Kitchen Sink multi step By the Bay stamp set I added the water effect. The sentiment comes from a SSS set called Be Kind. The tiny drops denote water droplets and are from my stash. They are Swarovski crystals and really sparkle in the light. I used mineral paper for my images and I got very good results using it.

    1. Thanks Gayle. When stamping the water I couldn’t get the stamps to press through the mask and in the end I took if off the block inked it and bent it in the middle to stamp. Did both layers like this and it worked.


  1. This is gorgeous Johanna! I love how you’ve made your whale’s tail the focal point as though being viewed through a telescope! So CAS and beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. Well, you can’t claim that CAS cards aren’t your forte now. This is fabulous, I love your sea and the bling water splashes are super. Thank you for sharing with us at Less is More.
