AAA Cards Challenge #97 - Masking

There's a new challenge starting today at AAA Cards and it's another nice and easy theme that requires no special equipment - MASKING.

The sponsor for this challenge is STAMPlorations and I've used their stamps to create my card:

And I thought I'd include a photo tutoral of how I created my card.

1. I gathered my supplies.

2. I used two pieces of masking paper to mask off a strip near the top of my card base. I'm stingy too and have re-used some masking paper, so that's why it's already all inky!

3. I used a blending tool to add my three colours.

4. I peeled back the top piece of masking paper just a little and stamped the first flower. Good job I was using the misti tool as it didn't stamp perfectly the first time.

5. I re-attached the masking paper strip and covered the flower with a mask too.

6. I stamped the middle flower. Then I peeled back the bottom masking strip and covered the middle flower with a mask and stamped my third flower.

7. I removed all the masking paper and stamped the two sentiment words.

Stamps: Stamplorations, Helenium large & Bold Sentiment Gorgeous
Inks: Ranger distress, blueprint sketch, mermaid lagon, cracked pistachio; Memento, tuxedo black

So this is one way to use masking on a card. Want to see some more ideas? Well then hop on over to the AAA Cards Challenge blog - HERE - and check out all the wonderful DT creations and our Guest Designer Maria's fabulous CAS card. You'll be inspired!
