this is the card that I created for the current Make it Crafty Clean and Simple Challenge with the theme «Masking».
There are so many different ways to use Masking on your projects. For my little card, I masked off a circle and did some Ink Blending with Distress Inks. Therefore I die-cut a circle from Inkadinkado Masking Paper and used the negative to protect the rest of my piece of white cardstock which I cut with a Simon Says Stamp «Stitched Square» die. Then I blended in blues and greens («Salty Ocean», «Tumbled Glass», «Twisted Citron» and «Mowed Lawn») to create a gradient.
I carefully removed the mask and let my panel air dry. Then I adhered the masking paper die-cut circle to cover my ink blended background. I stamped the dotted border (from a coming soon MiC background stamp set) in VersaMark and heat embossed it with Ranger «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder.
This cute doggy is from the All About Love Elements Chipboard set. I put a little piece of red cardstock behind the heart cut out before adhering the dog onto my blended background. I also added a second red die-cut heart and stamped the «I Miss You» sentiment from the WPlus9 «Bubbletalk» stamp set.
The grey chevron paper is from the My Favorite Things 6"x6" «Calm & Cozy» pack and I glued it directly to my card base. Finally, I popped up the masked and stamped panel using foam tape.
You still have time to enter our «Masking» challenge by the end of the month. You can find all the details HERE.
