Jessica joins us today to share a colorful birthday card that uses a fun masking technique!
Good morning! Jesshere with my first solo post for Lawn Fawnatics!
I recently purchased the adorable Critters on the Savanna stamp set (I know, I know…I have no idea why it took me so long!) and I couldn’t wait to play with it! I stamped the baobab tree onto my card base and colored it with copic markers. Then I fussy cut a mask from post-it tape and placed it over the stamped image to protect it. I used post-it tape to mark off a vertical rectangle and then blended wilted violet, broken china, worn lipstick, and spiced marmalade distress oxides onto the card base before flicking it with water. I removed the mask on my tree and set it aside to dry.
Next I stamped my lion and colored him with copic markers before fussy-cutting him. I ran a black marker over the cut edge to create a nice sharp edge. Then I stamped my sentiment onto black cardstock with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed the sentiment down to a fishtail banner and adhered it to my card. Finally I added my lion with foam mounting tape and a sprinkling of ombre sequins to highlight the colors of the background!
