clearlycards.blogspot.com created a very simple card using a washi tape masking technique. I fell in love with it! I had to use this technique to create my own works of art :). Her blog walks you through the steps for this technique, so hop on over to her blog to learn how to do it. Thanks Jeanie for a great tutorial.
On the layout you see above, I masked off three areas and used her technique. I began with a piece of white cardstock and stamped away. When I finished, I was so happy with the results that I had to finish the page (lol). Do you ever do that? If I didn't like it, I thought I would just trim off the section I had stamped and save the rest for another project :). As I looked through my printed photos, I ran across this one picture from my wedding day and thought, "That's perfect!" Read on to see some of my favorite parts of this layout (besides the masking technique).
For this layout, I used the following CTMH products:
*White daisy cardstock
*Lagoon Striped washi tape
*Dye inks: Pear, Lagoon, Thistle, Glacier, Sunflower (current color- Canary), Flaxen.
*3D Foam tape
For this card, I cut a piece of white daisy cardstock to 3.75" x 5" and masked off a section that had a 1.5" high area to stamp. I used the washi tape masking technique. Then I stamped the sentiment from the SOTM set (so many versatile stamps on this set). I ran half of my card base through my cuttlebug. Next, I glued down my card front onto my base. It looked fine, but I had to give it some more bling! I rummaged through my scraps and found this little remnant of flourishes and the flower embellishment. I thought they fit perfectly. I put some clear glitter in the center of the two orange flowers and wah lah!
Oh, a tip if you want to use this masking technique- on this card I used some cheap washi tape I had that I don't see myself using again. It was too sticky. If you look closely at my card above, you can see some areas where the paper got peeled up a little. For the layout, I used CTMH washi tape- not as sticky and came off better :). Shucks, I was hoping to find a good use for this washi tape!
The CTMH products I used for this card are:
*White Daisy cardstock
*February 2015 SOTM set (only available this month) You can get it for $17.95 or $5 with a $50 order.
*Skylark embellishment (discontinued)
*Dye inks: sorbet, sunflower (current- canary), lagoon, thistle, pear
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I have inspired you to give this technique a try! I would love to hear/see what you create from this post. -Dari
