For this week's Mix-Ability challenge, Lydia Fiedler asked us to cut a mask from a magazine photo. I found this sassy model in Real Simple....
... and used her as a mask on my Gelli Plate! I have a file folder of backgrounds to use up, so I rolled paint onto the plate, laid down the mask, and printed over backgrounds from my file. I love her confident pose - all 3 of these cards are going in my Hope You Can Cling To box, and I may be able to squeeze in a few more... The magazine paper is starting to tear a little after 3 prints, so I'll trace her onto a stencil sheet to make her last.
This my favorite of the 3 cards I made - the letters and hearts are die cut, and the hearts are velvet paper.
The second card was already pink, and I overprinted with white paint... the die is a new one from Impression Obsession that I designed.
An aside... I really wanted sequins on my card, but you would not believe the state of my desk when Hope You Can Cling To is on... I could not find them. Can you??
One final one, just to see how black would look. That die is inlaid (tutorial coming next week!) and cut from velvet paper as well... reminds me of a Maya Angelou quote about women being tough and tender.
Here's my card trio!
