Marvelously Masked

Hello everyone,

Today's post is another card that was born out of an experiment with masking.

The image is Altenew Remember This stamped in Cosmic Berry, Evergreen, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Lava Rock, Puffy Heart, and Purple Wine.  The background stripes are Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grunge stamped in Moon Rock.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up Perfectly Penned stamped in Moon Rock and highlighted with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen.  The embellishments are Crafts Rhinestone Strips.

One of the reasons why I ordered this set was because it was perfect for masking.  I've not done a lot of masking but it's a technique that results in really beautifully layered stamped images.  This card was an ambitious masking project as there were three flowers and six leaf images to fussy cut, which takes time, before the stripes could be stamped.  I love the results!  I originally planned for this card to be vertical (I just realized the flower on the left is just too straight for a horizontal card - oops) but this sentiment fit just too perfectly along these horizontal flower lines.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
