Hi and Happy Friday all,
I signed up for for the Spring Card Camp 2, since the Spring Card Camp 1 was so fun. The first session was on Wednesday. Kristina started us off with a reverse masking technique using monograms. I've done reverse masking before, but not specifically with this idea.
Kristina did some ink blending inside a large monogram and then stamped some images. I did mine a little differently. A friend's baby is due later this month. They have already picked his name, Oliver, and I needed a card to mail his presents. I decided to use this technique for his card. Instead of doing the ink blending inside the letter, I stamped images of baby animals from several Lawn Fawn sets and colored them with Copics. After the stamping and coloring was completed, I took the outside mask off and put the letter mask over what I had colored and ink blended the background, then stamped over the blended area with a graphic stamp from LF. The card came out a little busy, but I think it's still okay.
The sentiment is from Concord and 9th. I also used some C&9th letter dies on the inside of the card to personalize the card even more.
This was a fun and different twist on reverse masking. Thanks Kristina for the inspiration.
Have a nice Friday afternoon all,
