Hello friends. Laurie Willison shows us some tips on masked backgrounds for this weeks challenge at Make It Monday. A perfect opportunity to use some of my new goodies! I've been loving all the What the Doodle series of stamps and dies, and this latest release was no exception! I used the What the Doodle: Waves set and came up with this:
I used clear embossing powder and Versamark to stamp my waves first, and then used 1/2" micro-pore tape to mask all four edges before blending with distress ink. Really love the way this came out and almost didn't want to add anything else to it and distract from it. I ended up and kept it very simple by adding the sailboat (stamped with Pure Poppy and die cut and pop dotted) and some red & white bakers twine with a Pure Poppy star tag from Tiny Tags. Oh and I flicked some water like Laurie showed on her card too!
Make sure you check out Laurie's beautiful card and video, and then play along right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do! :0)
