Superstar Card

I made this card back in September when I was experimenting with my Masquepen Masking Fluid.  The Masking fluid is a 1 fl. oz. bottle of liquid that turns rubbery when it dries.  A writing needle is attached to the bottle and then crisp white words and delicate designs can be created with this fluid.  It’s great for watercoloring when you want to keep parts of the image crisp and white.  It’s also great for cards because – like Versamark ink or embossed areas, it resists any coloring put over it.

After the blue liquid dries and turns rubbery, I dabbed my sponge daubers in different colored ink pads and tapped them onto my squiggle design to make a pretty rainbow effect on the card.  Once I was done, I wiped off any excess ink from the card with a Kleenex and then gently rubbed away the blue rubbery stuff.  It’s important to rub the dried masking fluid away very gently or the paper will tear and your pretty design will need some fixing.

I wanted a bright blue ribbon but didn’t have any, so I colored some regular white ribbon blue with a Copic alcohol marker.  Then I secured the ribbon with double-sided adhesive and brads that look like buttons (from Hobby Lobby – oh, how I wish I had one of those stores near where I live).  I cut the star shapes with my Cricut and lined them with glitter glue.

Here’s another angle.  Umm yeah, I won’t be using that kind of glitter glue again.
