Hope

Good morning and Happy Friday!

Here are two more cards for the Gina K. Designs guest designer challenge for June - the challenge is to use masking techniques.

For this first card, the center image was stamped on the cardstock center, and then again on masking paper. The mask was cut out, and laid over the center image.  The image was then stamped again on the left and right, stamping right over top of the masked butterfly.  When the mask is removed, it appears that the center butterfly is flying in front of the others.  To ink, each color was applied with small sponge daubers, directly to the stamp.  I huffed to remoisten the ink, and stamped.

Supplies:  Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury White Cardstock and 'Hope is Faith' Stamp Set, Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Dusty Concord, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge


For this card, a strip of masking tape was put down directly on the cardstock, at the top and the bottom, masking the areas that were NOT going to get inked.
Using Peeled Paint Distress ink, the cardstock was sponged in between the two pieces of mask.
Once sponged, the images were stamped, and the focal panel was matted with black, and mounted onto the card front. Easy peasy!

That's it for today!
Off to start some supper for my handsome man!

Hugs and smiles,

Two techniques I haven't used in ages, with so many new things coming out everyday, we sometimes forget the oldies but goodies, thanks for the reminders. Both cards are awesome, loving the butterflies and the green panel on your second card is wonderful.
