Inspired by Jo Capper-Sandon

Click on images to enlarge.

I just didn't know what to do this afternoon, craft wise, so turned once again to this month's Craft Stamper magazine and had another go at Jo's masking technique.

I wrapped raffia around a piece of mount board and using a mister with ink, water, and copper Cosmic powder in it, I sprayed the board.

Let it dry and then I sprayed again.

I just can't capture the gorgeous copper shimmer. The first photo I took outdoors and the one above I took indoors with a flash light.

This is another one I did - same stamp - but a slightly darker ink - you can see the copper splashes better on this one I think.

I might turn these into a notebook.

I am entering this into the Lots to do challenge the theme of which is 'masking'
