PTI MIM #250: Masked Backgrounds

Laurie showed us in a video how to mask a background for this week's Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink. I've done this before but often forget about all the different techniques out there to incorporate in card making. These are always great reminders even if I don't learn something new. Although, usually I learn at least some tips to accomplish the task easier. Here's my creation.




It's pretty easy to see here that after masking my Stamper's Select White card stock I used Winter Wisteria and Royal Velvet for ink blending. Peaceful Garden was stamped twice in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed using Clear Embossing Powder. Stamped my sentiment also in black and popped up the masked image using Foam Tape. Done.


I'm also entering this here for Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.
