Happy Birthday to You
Today is my turn to host the Addicted to CAS Challenge #57. I chose the Code Word MASK:
I thought this word would provide different interpretations such as a stamping technique, a mask as an object, etc.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Inspired By Stamping:
I would like to welcome Ellen Parker our guest designer for this month. Please be sure to check out Ellen's awesome sample on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog along with the rest of the team's samples for tons of inspiration!
I used masking tape to make the "frame" around the top and left side of the balloons, then I stamped them so that some parts were masked off. I also made a mask for the balloon so I could over-stamp two more balloons. I then stamped the sentiment with some words from the Winnie & Walter set The Big, The Bold, The Happy. The balloons were colored with Copic markers and then I drew the strings with a Copic Multiliner pen and a ruler.
Here is another card that I used masking for - it is my favorite masking technique actually:
For this card I used a sheet of Eclipse masking paper and die cut the Cuttlebug Butterfly. I then place the masking paper with the negative space onto the card front and sponged on some inks. Then, keeping the mask in place, I stamped the bullrushes from a Verve set and the dragonfly from a PaperTrey set. After removing the mask I stamped the sentiment.
Thanks for coming by!
