Simple Masking

I made this card specifically for 2 challenges. The Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge is to use your favorite technique and the Less Is More Challenge is to create a one layer card with the concept of "wishing". I have the perfect set for these challenges!



My favorite technique happens to be masking. I know, an oldy but a goody. You can create some stunning scenes using masking! I first stamped my little bunny image and then cut out a mask with some masking paper. I placed it over my bunny and then cut another mask using a circle die. I used the negative space for my mask and placed it over the top of my bunny. I then used Mama Elephant pigment inks (my absolute favorite!) to blend colors to look like a sunset. When I removed the masks it left such a beautiful little scene, but I felt like something was missing. I stamped the little black heart and it felt so much more complete! (I was going to add sequins, but I thought it just made everything look too busy!) I stamped the sentiment and my card was complete!


Supplies:
Stamps: Wishing You (WPlus9)
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Orangeade, Buttercup, Apricot (Mama Elephant), Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Masking Paper, Ranger mini ink blending tools
