2014-03-23 Masking Fluid & Three Ferns by Hero Arts


I am dreaming of spring time and with St. Patrick’s Day last week I was thinking of green. I had a punched border left over from the March Shoebox craft night so I began with that using Hero Arts Three Ferns and a sentiment from TAC (The Angel Company)

I know the color looks yellow-green in this photo, and it is. But probably not this yellow-green. I stamped the sentiment first using clear embossing. Next I added masking fluid splatter and once that was dry I started stamping. I added layers of colors starting with yellow and going through 3 different shades of green. Between each color change I added some more masking fluid splatter and waited for it to dry. When the piece was finished, I ironed the clear embossing powder off so it has the same color (less the high gloss shine from the embossing powder) as the rest of the piece.

And one last angle before you head out for the rest of your day.

I do like the different shades of masked dots…it kind of looks like a summer’s night with fire fly’s flitting around. Please hurry spring!

    What is masking fluid? Where can you buy it?

      Masking fluid is found in the painting section of Michaels and Joann’s. In Walmart it is next to the craft paint and paint brushes. Cheapest at Walmart, I think I paid about $8.

      Here is the product and a description for you…
