Masking Fluid Resist

Finally, I am able to upload a photo and can share this card I made for my nephew's birthday several days ago.  I used the Masking Fluid Resist technique on my card. Basically, your flick Masking Fluid onto your card stock, let it dry completely, stamp your image in it's lightest color, sponge in the lightest color, and keep repeating these three steps, using a darker shade of ink each time.  When you are done stamping and sponging, you rub off the dried Masking Fluid to reveal the base color card stock (here it is white).  I love the artistic outcome!

My shades of green, from light to dark, are mustard seed, crushed olive, peeled paint, and forest moss,  Distress Inks.

After I heat embossed the butterflies in black, I colored them with a gold glitter pen and covered with Glossy Accents.

Oh my gosh, this is a phenomenal work of art, Charlene, that is worthy of framing! Tell you nephew I said so! Have a great weekend!

Charlene - that's just beautiful! You've inspired me to give this technique another go (or two, given how unsuccessful my first attempt was).
Both the background and butterflies look beautiful.

Thank you too for my lovely happy mail!
