Using Masking for Cards

I don’t use masking a lot in my cards, but decided to do so today.

JUGS are holding a challenge where you must use a one-layer card. I originally thought I’d create a bouquet of flowers, but changed my mind. This is the result.


I used Fabulous Florets from Stampin’ Up! for this card. I began by stamping one flower, then masked it and added another, and so on. This same formula was used top and bottom.

For the greenery I stamped in green, masking all four flowers so they weren’t contaminated.

To colour, I began with a yellow ink (very, very old – had it for many years!), using a finger dauber to add the colour. Then I went over the centres with Regal Rose from SU. Last but not least, I added some stickles.

I did mess up a little with the greenery, so I decided to add my greeting over that area.

This card has been entered in the Just Us Girls (JUGS) one-layer card challenge.
