Hello {Masked Stripes}

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

 Hello! Just stopping in really quickly to post a card I made after work today.  Work? I know!  Summer is over and school is starting.  As much as I will miss summer, I am looking forward to the school year!
In order to follow the sketch I decided to do some masking.  I started by cutting a piece of inexpensive paper to the size rectangle I wanted on my card front.  I temporarily adhered it in place so that I could mask off around it.  Once that was in place I removed the rectangle and any residue from the adhesive.  I then placed another mask in a thin strip along the bottom.  Once all of my masks were in place I applied ink using a stencil.  After that, I removed all masks and stamped my sentiment. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
