Hi again friends,
I have one more card to share for Chinese New Year.
Here it is:
 I used the Firecracker stamp (Sister Stamps) which is colored in Copics. I thought I would share a couple of (bad) pics of how I created this scene.

First, I needed to mask:
Since this is all one single image, I had to think about how I was going to mask all of the images (including all the tiny bits) knowing I wanted to use my Distress Inks on the background. I was not about to cut masks for all those teeny tiny bits so I used two different types of masking: liquid & paper. I stamped my image and masked the girl and boy with masking paper (Eclipse) and used my Fineline Masking Fluid Pen on the firecrackers and all the tiny bits. Then I used my Distress Inks in Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber, and Black Soot to ink blend the entire background as shown in the pic. (The white is where the Fineline fluid resisted the ink.)

Next, I removed the masks:
I peeled off the paper masks and gently removed the Fineline fluid with a gummed remover. So all I needed was to color my images.

Here's a closer peek:
I added some yellow Stickles to make those sparks really sparkle and shine!

Here's a peek of the innies:
The sentiment is from Signature Greetings (Papertrey Ink).

Here's the completed card:
The sentiment is from Winter Scripty Sayings (Lawn Fawn). I added some black photo corners to each corner so that it would seem like it was a photo that had captured this fun moment in time *Ü*

I hope you're having a lovely crafternoon or two this weekend.
Thanks so much for popping in!
Until next time... Tootles!
