If you're looking for some last minute romantic crafting inspiration, just in time for St.Valentine's day then the Tando Hearts mask new in the shop might just be the thing!
I wasn't really planning to make a Valentine's card this year but ... well, as it's only days away what better way to combine trying out a new mask ... with a little romance:
On to an old book page I simply sponged three different shades of pink/red ink through the mask to create my own patterned backdrop:
[BTW: the pin-up girl focal point came from a sheet of tissue paper images which were once in stock at 3DJean too, so if you've got some left, this is a really fun way to put them to use!]
Then I began adding layers of interest on top including a few experiments with the new Shimmerz Dimensionz [dimensional liquid, pearly paints with a nozzle top] which are available in various colours:
I began with the Pearly Gates [far left in this photo] a pearlised white which turns out to be a great usable neutral. Personally I always tend to buy a pearlised white/pale shade across the majority of mixed media supplies [be it in acrylic paint, spritzed inks and Stickles etc] because I find they come in useful in so many situations and coordinate with all kinds of colour-schemes.
Here I covered a plain wooden heart with the Pearly Gates Dimensionz and you can see just how thick and glossy it is:
Then I also dotted Dimensionz around the card to create some metallic stud effects using the Streets of Gold shade:
And finally a few finishing touches include some washi tape strips, a paperclip and a single black organza rose cut from the lengths available in the shop:
Rather than cut it free from the mesh backing altogether I left some of it attached to mirror the fish-net stockings worn by the pin-up!
Here's the full card again so you can see how the Tando hearts mask, the Dimensionz and the organza rose all combined to make an eclectic, vintage-influenced tiny-bit-risqué Valentine:
See you next time.
