I have had a couple of comments regarding the reverse masking so here are two of the cards that we made in the class on Thursday night.
The first is a card inspired by the incredibly talented Claire Daly, who I find so much inspiration from, I just love her work and I am sure you will too, so check out her website, and you will find the original of this card if you click on her Christmas Cards area. I have made mine a little more simple, left off ribbon and brads but I just love the combination of the two stamp sets used here, and the way it looks like snow on the spire of the church and on the trees. I am starting to get in the mood for Christmas already! 🙂 It is hard to see in the photo, but the tree which is outside the oval masked area is glittery.
Stamp Sets: A Wish For Peace, Lovely as a Tree, Snow Swirled.
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip.
Inks: Baja Breeze, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Silver Encore.
Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Markers, Oval Reverse Mask, Scallop Circle punch for the corners, Two-way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds.
Ok and for the second card….
I got a little carried away with sponging the chocolate chip around the top (my three year old says it is a storm cloud!) and then when I tried to fix it I made it worse (of course!) – a lesson to be learnt, which I should know by know – never try to fix things up, it only makes them look worse. Anyway, you all need to know that I am only human 🙂 Truth is, I was too busy chatting!
Stamp Set: Lovely as a Tree
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Kraft, Chocolate Chip.
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Oval Reverse Mask, ribbon from my own stash.
I do hope these inspire you to try something a little different.

Gott love what comes outa the mouths of babes…don’t cha Chris!!! I have added reverse masking to my list of gunnas….and see what happens. It definitely adds something really unique to the cards. They are lovely.
Lol Hi Lynda, yep, can’t get anything past them!
It is a great technique, and I still have lots of ideas with it, just have to find the time to try them all out 🙂
Chris, these are lovely cards, especially that top one. Beautiful.
