PUT YOUR MASK ON!
Barbara Campbell here! I am so pleased to be your hostess for this weeks MIUM Challenge at STV. With all of the beautiful images to choose from at Gina K Designs, I am sure that you will be able to join in the challenge this week.
Are you crafters ready to put on your MASK? Yes, It is not Halloween, but I am asking you to put a mask on your project this week. Masking is a way of making your images look like they are behind or in front of other images. In my example, I chose leaves, from Gina's, The Simple Things stamp set, but this technique adapts well with flowers and animals and lots of others things too.
Here is the card that I did for this challenge.
Card stock is Dusty Sage, Sandy Beach and Black Onyx with Fresh Asparagus ink, all Gina K. I layered the leaves using a mask for several of them. Using the mask below, and Distressed Ink called Frayed Burlap, I then sponged over the entire image. Two ways to Mask! The sentiment is my favorite from Gina's Birthday Greetings. A strip of striped paper and some black stones from my stash. I also used a spellbinder die on the edge called A2 Bracket Borders One.
I just tore a hole in a piece of typing paper where I wanted it to be and then used it to sponge the area over the leaves.
You can see how Gina does masking on her project HERE
I can't wait to see the sensational projects that you come up with.
Remember there are lots of ways that you can use a mask.
Be sure to upload your project to the Gallery by 8:00 PM CST Sunday,

How very pretty! Love the leaves with a sponged background! I hope I can play along with everyone!
Oooh such a beautiful card! Love the mask technique, so many possibilities. FUN Challenge!
Wow, that is really cool looking. I don't mask too often, but I need to learn more. Thanks!
Your sample card is stunning, Barb. Wow! A really elegant design! What a treat for someone to receive a card like this... the real joy of hand-made cards! Hope to play along in your challenge this week.
Barbara, awesome card really....I love it! I am a newbie at this and not sure I will have time to participate but I have to tell you that this is something that I'd like to get better at and that I think will be a lot of fun. I love the colors you've chosen as well and I think that border is a fantastic idea, ie using the Spellbindiers die.
Very creative my dear and a great challenge:D
Your card is beautiful! I rarely do masking, so this will be a fun one.
This is a great challenge Barbara! Love your card too! The leaves looks spectacular...going to try my best to join you!!!
