Splodgeaway Favourite Technique
My favourite technique using Splodgeaway masks is embossing craft metal. Sometimes I cover the embossed metal with Acrylic paint and then take a lot of the paint off. This way the paint stays in the embossed bits of the metal.
On this occasion I decided to leave off the acrylic paint and have a clean look.
I made two embossed backgrounds and on the first card used a piece of ribbon and a Happy Birthday sentiment, this was then matted onto black card.
On the second card I added a piece of craft metal which was heat embossed in black and using an Oak Tree stamp. All the elements were then mounted on to 8 x 8 Kraft card.
I've added a photo to show how deep the pattern is when using the Splodgeaway masks as an embossing tool.
