AAA Cards - #74 Masking

Hey! And welcome to the beginning of a brand new challenge over at AAA Cards. This one's going to be a theme that you'll all love - MASKING. Just remember it has to be CAS!

So I set myself a personal challenge to mask out a sentiment word and add a two tone stripe. Here's how it looks:

The THANKS was stamped and then each letter was masked - a bit of a time consuming process, but I love how clear and white and empty this process makes it look. Next I applied a mask - on top of the letter masks - to reveal just a thin line through the middle of the sentiment and brushed across some hot pink ink. I then moved these masks out to line up with the top and bottom of the sentiment and brushed some more ink over the whole thing which gives the deeper shade to the middle.

Once all the masks were removed a few sparkly enamel dots were added to finish off and highlight the focal sentiment.

Stamps: Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #6
Inks: Ranger dustress, picked raspberry
Embellishments: Doodlebug Sprinkles, love glitter asst.

I'm really excited about this challenge and know you'll adore all the wonderful DT's CAS cards, check them out here.

Thanks so much for dropping by today, your time and company is always appreciated.  And keep crafting!
