Doo Lally Pip by Lindsay Mason for Personal Impressions:Moochin


Full credit for this card design goes to Lindsay Mason.  Behind with my card making I looked to Craft Stamper for inspiration and found this.  I love Lindsay mason stamps and have quite a few in my collection including this 'Moochin' I've had enough (CICSA6063)  To quote Lindsay "the range is full of fun and quirky characters as well as quotes and phrases which work well for journaling, altered art pieces and card marking".

Two things  learnt from this article was a resist method using Glue N Seal.  I have always used paper masks to cover my images, this is such a quicker method with better results.

The other was using the kitchen towel that  I mopped up the ink left on my craft sheet.  I had read of this somewhere before but had forgotten about it. But now that I have put it into practice and got such great results, will be using it a lot.  The 'dirty towel' was used to  cut out Moochin's  jeans and t shirt and just look at the texture created to ground him.

The days of stamping and cutting out a mask for my images are over, much better to use the glue n seal as a resist, though this, being my first attempt, I did make  too gloopy but it all added to the texture.

A Great resist technique Lindsay and I couldn't resist copying it (just love puns). That is after all  how we learn . I did change the colours  and also used a mask to create the blots.

Many thanks to Lindsay Mason for her card design, I know my Grandson will just love it!
