Masking and distress ink to create artistic card panels

Near the lift bridge, fall is pretty inspiring.

I'm getting ready for fall, and have thanksgiving in my brain.  If you hadn't figured it out by now, I'm really into using masking tape to make card panels. I wondered what would happen if I made larger panels that would be the whole card, and if I could replicate some of the colors I see in the fall.

Here are a few examples of my finished cards.  This first card uses metallic inks from Club Scrap, along with some dimensional paint and ribbon.

This card was brayered using a multi-color ink pad. I embossed on top using a copper embossing powder.

Finally, I did more playing with distress inks and water.  I was going for a brighter look, and I really like how these turned out.

The card just above and the rest below matched what I had envisioned the best.  If you'd like to see how they're made, check out my latest video:

I hope you enjoyed a peek at these cards and the beauty of fall in your area of the world.  If you're lucky enough to live by a lift bridge, you can get inspired by the majestic colors around you.
