A Good Friend {PTI Blog Hop}

Thursday, June 25, 2015

My For Sale page has been updated with new sets and dies!
 
 
Good Morning!
Today's card was created with the PTI Blog Hop inspiration photo in mind.  I pulled inspiration from the colors {orange, white, and blue} and the design {stripes and flowers}.  
 
 
I started by stamping the medium sized flower and then masking it off.  Then I stamped the large flower and masked it off.  Next, I stamped the smallest flower and again masked it off.  Finally, I did the same for all of the leaves.  Leaving the masks in place, I positioned a stencil over my card front.  I applied some distress ink through the stencil.  This is why I prefer using copy paper to create my masks, the stripes go right up to the flowers and leaves without leaving white space.  After I removed the stencil and all of the masks I did all of the black stamping.  The sentiment, additional floral images, and flower centers really stand out.
 
 
I look forward to seeing what you have created. 
Enjoy the hop!

  17. Lovely and unique design. You certainly had a lot of patience to do all of that masking, but it really pays off with such a pretty floral design.

  18. How refreshing that you used (my fave) turquoise for your stripes, instead of gray, Kara! That color really makes your design elements POP!! Excellent masking and stenciling and excellent courage stamping the bold sediment after everything else was done!! Phew! Hugs, Darnell
