Celebrate with SplodgeAway

Hi there, Wednesday already so the weekend is just about in sight thank goodness. I can't work out what on earth is going on with the weather though. It keeps tipping down with rain but just gets hotter, our office was like a sauna yesterday so I hope its a bit cooler today or I may just melt. my card this morning is a very quick card made with two of the fab new masks from SplodgeAway.

Began by making a background with distress inks (vintage photo, tea dye and a little walnut stain) using the spritz and flick technique and once that was dry I applied grey acrylic paint through the brick mask from  The Texturizer kit and let it dry before stamping the 'Celebrate' stamp and embossing with sparkly red EP. I took the man mask from the Altered Art Kit and drew round it on black card, cut him out and popped him on the background. A really quick male card :-)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card a Day: for men

  1. Brilliant card Claire. The brick wall is very realistic and the silhouette is great. Got to get me some of those masks.
