June CS challenge

Got my mag today, much earlier than last month and another great one dimensional card. Look forward to seeing your interpretations.  Smile
Miriam

Mine arrived today too - very surprised to see it so early!

I've flicked through and there are some lovely articles - looking forward to this one

I must give it a go.
Think my xmas cards might be one layer cards.

Here are my attempts. One does have a brad as I managed to get a blob of ink in the moddle so had to cover it up!
Found the masking fiddly but does give quite a good effect.

These are super, Vonny!  I especially like the one with the plant - very effective.  I haven't got around to trying this yet - what do you use to stick the mask down?  Margaret

Lovely work Vonny

Very good Vonny.  Like the colours too, nice and summery.

Must admit I had forgotten about this challenge, so will get a wiggle on Laughing

This is my attempt at the one layer card - I do like this technique and think I may use it for some Xmas cards too.  I found out that Amazon had the repositional spray but they wouldn't send it to Shetland because it was on their forbidden list!  Must be really dangerous stuff.  Have ordered it from another company.   Very Happy Margaret

Lovely Margaret.

I bought repositionable spray from Hobbycraft - it was cheap too!
vonny

nice work Margaret. I used a Zig pen where the glue turns from blue to clear when dry and is then repositionable and just ran it around the edge of each mask. Seemed to work ok
Beckyb

Love the card Margaret I quite often just make the mask place it in top and hope for the best when I stamp  Laughing

Thanks for the tips, everyone.  My zig glue should be coming any day so looking forward to having a play.  Margaret
Mickie

Nice colours Margaret - interesting that repositionable spray is forbidden Laughing  

I just use post-it notes usually to make my mask - not thought to use Zig pen so will have a go with that.  Thanks for the tip Vonny.

I think it might be that any aerosols are banned as they could potentially explode but I may be wrong  Smile
margaret rorie

That probably is the reason, Vonny but I can't understand why some companies won't send things while others do.  My aerosol arrived safely by post yesterday so will see how it works.  Margaret
vonny

perhaps some are just more law abiding  Smile

I especailly like the flower one Mickie -the green is a lovley shade.
See you did the embossing - must admit I missed that bit completley in all the challenges as it seemed too much hassle  Surprised
Mickie

Thank you ladies Laughing

Vonny, I used Distress Stains on the flower card and the green is Peeled Paint.  The other colour is Antique Linen.  I stained the backgrounds and overstamped with Distress Inks in the same colour by way of experiment and I quite liked the result.

Also, I embossed the bird one, which I found not very satisfactory so didn't bother embossing the flower one.   Embossing in straight lines is probably as far as I will go Laughing

Haven't tried the distress stains yet but they do seem good for quick coverage and the stamoing over in the same colour DI does look good.  Smile
