Winnie and Walter Leading Lady Take FOUR!


Wow! What an amazing month this has been! Thank you all so much for your support on my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts! I have absolutely LOVED reading your comments! Today is my final post and today we are going with a FULL dress rehearsal! Yup, complete costumes, MASKS and all! Tee-hee...I do so love these film analogies. Yes, today's cards all incorporate masking in some way.

Watercolor Birthday Wishes


Masking with heat embossing can allow you to create some gorgeous watercolor images. For this card, I cut a mask of the center rose and then stamped the two larger roses on each side. I then stamped the center one in place, covered the entire thing with embossing powder, and heat embossed. Normally it is easier to stamp first, cover your image with a mask, and then stamp the background images, but I have found when embossing it can be handy to wait so you don't add a mask over the ink you need to keep sticky.

I then watercolored (On regular cardstock! GASP! It's true folks...it isn't quite the same, but you CAN watercolor on regular cardstock if you work carefully. I promise.) the flowers and stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold. Because... gold.

Autumn


This card employs a similar technique, but it allows the embossed images to be the star of the show! I just love these leaves from A Tree for All Seasons! The line detail in them is just fabulously graphic without being overpowering. They make me happy. Combining them in clusters, well, now that just makes me EXTRA happy!

Happy Thoughts


Finally, masking is an awesome way to create a scene on a one layer card. I stamped the bushes first, masked them, then stamped the surrounding scene. I then lifted my masks, colored the shrubs with Spectrum Noir pens, and stamped the sentiment for this simple scene that has lots of dimension and remains super duper easy to mail! LOVE that! For reals, though. It's handy to actually be able to MAIL a card. Right? Right. Glad we had this talk.



So, my friends, there you have it! Our Full Dress rehearsal, complete with MASKS! I hope you have enjoyed my posts this month as much as I have enjoyed creating for them and writing them! Don't forget to leave a comment this one last time to enter to win a $30 Gift Certificate to Winnie & Walter. Guys, for reals... you want to win that gift certificate so you can BUY ALL OF THE THINGS!

And That's a Wrap!

  35. I'm disappointed your W&W posts have come to an end, have really enjoyed them. Loving all your projects today as I don't do masking at all. These cards have given me so many ideas. And yes, I too watercolour on normal cardstock as I don't own watercolour cardstock. As long as you don't use too much water its pretty good. I love your first card the most, those flowers are so pretty and you can never have enough gold!!!!
