MASKuerade - Timeless Tuesday 26

Welcome back friends to another Timeless Tuesday Challenge! (on Wednesday!)  Allison is our fantastic hostess this week and she is challenging you on using one of the newest and trendy items in paper crafts. That is to use a mask or stencil on your card or project!

You can find many companies today carrying their own brand of stencils to meet the demands of those who want to use different mediums to create a unique look on a project.  I don't usually use stencils, partly because I am unsure of how to, but after looking at many different creations from many, I decided to try a medium that seems to be popping up - Modeling paste.


I placed my stencil over some Flourishes cardstock in Pistachio and added some modeling paste over it.  It dries fairly quickly, so I was able to sponge over some ink to tone down the whiteness of the paste.  I then popped up some patterned paper that was in my scrap pile over the base and stamped the image from Flourishes Just my type set.  I cut that out with my dies and popped it up over the fishtail.  I completed the look with some ribbon and twine, button, and some self adhesive pearls.

I think I like how this turned out and I know I have a few more tries to perfect some different styles with stencils.  Either way, it was a fun challenge and one I know I will do again soon!  Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out the other fantastic projects from the Timeless Tuesday Team.

    1. This is a beauty, Deborah! You have such a wonderful eye for color--the pop of color over the dark green is unexpected, but classic at the same time. Great job with the stencil, too, and I love that the dp you used for the fishtail has an image on it that looks a bit like the stencil. I don't use modeling paste often, either, but isn't it a fun technique! ~Hugs!

    2. What a textured piece of artwork Deborah!!! I love your stencil work here! A beautiful creation for this week's challenge!

    3. VERY NICE!!!! I've been hearing out & about on the net, that the modeling paste is "IN" right now!!! :) LOOKS FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
