Hi all! Its time for another challenge at AAA Cards. This time we are asking you to show us your skills and creativity using masking. I know I am going to be amazed by your guys creations :)
Isn't that graphic so cute? Our sponsor this week is Stamplorations and they are generously giving a $15 gift certificate to the winner of this challenge as well as $5 gift certificates each to 2 randomly drawn participants. There is also a 10% coupon offer for our players too.
Here is my card for this weeks challenge.
To begin, I used masking tape to mask off all but a strip of cardstock. Then I used distress inks to add color to the card. Once I was happy with the blending, I spritzed the background with water and perfect pearls. I dried it quickly so that the card wouldn't warp too badly. I took the top piece of masking tape off and stamped the flower stamps with a blue ink so that some of the flowers peek over the top. Then I took off the bottom tape and stamped the sentiment in black.
I really liked how this came out so I tried it again but used Zig Clean color markers instead of distress inks.
