Camouflage - Peerless Designs

Hi there and welcome to you today.
Today's post is a DT post from me for

Sarah Hallam is back on Create and Craft today with her sell out TangleTastic CD
You can find the CD on Create & Craft or Direct from Peerless Designs Here
It really is a fab CD and I will be sharing some sample's with you over the next week.

Not only does Peerless Designs do cd's they also do Mask's and Stamps so without further ado here is a little inspiration from me using one of Sarah's fab mask & stamp designs.
The mask is called 
I also used the I May Not Be Where Stamp

I adore this mask and you can make so many different projects using allsorts of craft mediums, but for this sample I decided to bling it up all girlie.

To start simply mat and layer the black & gold card apart from the top piece of black gloss card as you need to attach the mask with some masking tape around the edges to hold the mask in place, then take a spatula and sparkle medium and cover the mask with it, then carefully lift the mask my tip is to leave the top piece of the mask still taped down just in case when you lift the mask you have missed a little bit as it will still be in the right place to touch up if needed, you then need to let it dry before adding to your previous layers. Using a versamark ink pad stamp the verse and dust over with perfect pearls and then mat & layer add foam pads to the back to raise it from the mask layer and then finish of with ribbon & dazzler.

Other Items used:
Sparkle Medium Rose Pink & Welsh Gold - Black & Gold Card - Gold Perfect Pearls - Creative Expressions Ribbon & Dazzler - Pearls from stash.

We would love you to come say HI.
