My lil crafty corner



Hello friends! :) I've a treat for you today! My guest is the sweet Cindy Lee from My Lil Crafty Corner! Some of you might recognize her as the pretty bride from this project I made...:) She is an incredibly talented cardmaker and makes gorgeous cards! :)


Here's a sampling of Cindy's wonderful work!




Cindy is sharing a masking technique with us today! :)

*****************************************************

When I received an email from Yvonne asking me to be guest on her blog, my mind went blank and when it started functioning again, I shrieked with excitement, "Oh my! Is this for real?" Oh yes it is! Here I am taking over her blog as the guest for today. Yvonne is a wonderful friend I met through blogging and I thank her for giving me the honor of sharing my work with you!



Here is a little something about myself. My name is Cindy and I'm from Malaysia. I discovered cardmaking two years ago when I was introduced to a local scrapbooking store by a friend. Then, I started blogging and LOVE the whole process especially all the wonderful friends I have made and the opportunities that have come my way.


I am constantly inspired by the beautiful work that some of my favourite designers make.I also enjoy flipping through the colorful pages of the home decor magazines that I buy every month. It is my one-stop place for color inspirations.


I made this card for my guest post at "Do more with less". Below is the simple tutorial on how I created the masked background.
  Gather your supplies: Lace cardstock, white cardstock,acrylic paint and sponge applicator.

Cut the lace cardstock and layer on a piece of white cardstock.
Using a sponge applicator, fill the 'white' space with paint.
Remove the lace cardstock while the paint is still wet to reveal the masked background.

I had a blast creating this and my challenge to you is to create a project using a mask! It could be anything that tickles your fancy!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Have fun!

***********************************************
Ready to play along with this challenge? Leave the links to your project in this post by 16 April 2010. Winner gets a RAK of course! :) I will share my inspired piece tomorrow! :)

P/s: Don't forget about the non-traditional background challenge that ends on 8 April 2010. Post your links here.
