My Favourite Mask at SplodgeAway

Hello again, i'm back with my second card of the day, this time its for SplodgeAway who are featuring our Favourite Masks this week. Its so difficult to choose a favourite mask, they are all gorgeous so I took the easy option and picked one of  the masks I use most, the Fancier Lattice Mask (you can find it here)

I've made an easel card (why can't I take pics of easel cards?? They always look a really weird angle for some reason) Anyway I've applied Seedless Preserves distress ink to the mask and embossed it with my Grand Calibur, I've found that if you apply the ink with a brayer from the SplodgeAway Mat it gives a much more subtle finish. The image is from Crafts and Me, and the sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque.
I've added some ribbon, paper flowers a little lock charm and some pretty gems to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Make my Monday: Purple/neutral
Quirky Crafts: more than one fold
The Stamp Spot: Feminine Creations

If you've got a minute pop over to the SplodgeAway blog and my lovely teamies are showcasing all their favourite masks this week and as always they have made some stunning projects
Thanks for popping by today, its lovely to see you :-)

  1. I can't get decent shots of easel cards either Claire, but all the lovely inking and stamping comes across well here.
