How much do you love the masking technique? I love masking – it’s one of my two go to basic techniques that I use over and over again. There are so many ways to mask and I always love the end result.
This month over at the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge, masking is the hot topic. So I created a fun project utilizing some great new stamps from Create a Smile.
As you can see, I embossed the Clustered Vines stamp which created not only a fun interesting look – they’re embossed in Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress Inks with clear embossing powder. They provided a great protective mask for the Color Your Polka background stamp which here is only partially stamped in areas over a torn masked edge, ensuring a clean and simple look.
To help accentuate that area, lightly sponge a little tumbled glass to color the background, fading out as you near the white edge.
A fun die cut from Stamplorations paired up with my absolutely favorite little Birthday stamp from Everyday Sentiments by Happy Little Stampers and you’re all set!
Simple Sparkling clear sequins and a white on white card completes the look. I love this card – it’s clean, it’s simple and makes an impact. Now it’s your turn! Create a fun masked clean and simple card for the challenge – you have till the end of the month!
But before you go, I’m totally curious – what’s YOUR favorite way to use the masking technique? Tell me below in the comment section!
Till next time!
