The Corrosive Challenge Blog - Masking

The Corrosive Challenge Blog is challenging you to use the Masking technique for this weeks challenge!!! I decided to do a masked "frame" on a one layer card. I haven't done one of these in a really long time, and thought I'd try my hand at it again!

First I put a post it note in the center like here:

Then I put post its all around the center one, and then removed the center post it.

I stamped the image in the center, like so:

Then I forgot to take pictures of the other steps (LOL) Sorry!!! But then I removed the outside post its, and put the one back in the center over the flower. Then I took 2 different pink pigment inks (Pink Passion and Pretty in Pink) and sponged the outside frame.

When I removed the middle post it, I was left with this. I added some chalks to the flower petals, center & stem and that was it!!! Easy Peasy!!! I added some pink ribbon and a sentiment at the bottom and there you have it!!! A ONE LAYER masked card! The flower is from Hero Arts - called Engraved Daisy and I got it at Simon Says Stamp!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will join us this week for this fun challenge!!!
