Little Card/Tag

Masks is the current challenge over at PaperArtsy this time, so I have made a card/tag thingy for a friend.



I was inspired to make this after reading the post by Gabrielle Price, I just loved how the background was created, and the masking techniques.

My background started life as a layer of Fresco Chalk Paint in Inky Pool. Depth was added by mixing with white gesso.



A bit more white gesso...



My masks are Washi Tape, the lamp comes from Urban Snapshots Arched Apertures USAA2..



Keeping with the blue theme, I used Infusions in Royal Blood and some matt gel medium..



Like this technique.. Just scuffed up the edges and glued onto some black card. Wordage is also from the same stamp set.
