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.
