These easy and simple bucketcards are so decorative and different from the normal 6x6" cards I make usually. It's good to switched it up now and then so I don't get to stuck in the same old patterns.
I got the tutorial from Torill aka Screppa at a scrappbooking gathering a while back, and they are so easy I have now folded a lot of them just laying around so I can decorate at any time.
Here are some photos of my two bucketcards I made here last week. Very different, but I like them just the same. Both are at MonaLiza for sale.

Experimenting with Maskingfluid

I saw a few vidoes on Instragram by the user Pigmentology and saw he was playing around with paint and maskingfluid, so I decided to try it out. Got some Masking Fluid at my work MonaLiza.no (you can also buy it at out online store in the link)
It was kinda thick, so I wanted to try and water it down a bit aswell. It worked well, but had to wait longer for it to dry before painting.
Maskingfluid was fun to work with, will try out more later and see if I can do even more cool effects with it in layers.

Here I used a stencil to apply maskinfluid in small circles. As you see they didn't get as even as I wanted to, but it's one of my first tries so not to shabby.

On this one I put down a butterfly and applied maskingfluid on the outside, brushstrokes from the butterfly and outwards. Really liked the effect when I put out a diecut on top of the butterfly aswell. SImple effect but does a lot to the card.

Here I just applied maskingfluid in a circle in the middle to be able to make the moon after. It was easy and I really liked it.

For sale!

Now I have finally finished my card-stand that I made from scratch, and my cards are sold at the art-supply store I work at called MonaLiza. It's 5 different types of cards, you have normal 6x6" cards, 6x3" cards, some with different folding techniques, Kvikk-lunch cards (also fits kitkat I would believe) and a card-box that fits a 200g chocolate plate.
Just drop by and have a look. I also made to order, so if you need something special for a special occasion just send me a message.
I will post the tutorial I used on the card-stand later on, and some more detailed photos of it.
