Decorative Masks

I have used one of Stampin’ Up!s Decorative Masks to create the background for my card today.  These are such a simple but effective tool which would also be fantastic for using on scrapbook pages, art journal pages, and a heap of other things.
Something else I will be experimenting with, they are so easy to use, and it makes it super easy to create a quick background.

Sponged Note

So I have gone with some yummy Grapefruit Grove cardstock for my main colour, and sponged….. Flirty Flamingo ink through the Decorative Mask.
Yes you read that right.  You could, of course, use Grapefruit Grove ink and that would work too, but right now I don’t have Grapefruit Grove ink 🙂 and I liked the depth that the Flirty Flamingo ink added over the base colour.
Add some strips of off cuts and left over pieces of patterned paper and cardstock, and some white Baker’s Twine, and that’s a really quick and easy card.
The ends of both white off cuts have been punched using the Classic Label Punch, (another super versatile piece of equipment!) and the words are from Butterfly Gala stamp set.

Inspiration for my card came from the current Sketch Challenge at Just Add Ink.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you will know that I LOVE a sketch challenge 🙂

Happy Stamping!

  1. The stencilled design makes a fabulous background for this CAS card Christina. I love the detail that layering those little flags and gingham adds to the bottom. Thanks so much for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim

  2. This is gorgeous Christina! I love your stencilled background and the tone on tone effect you’ve created. The gingham and twine and white layers look so fresh and summery too! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week
