Masked Floral Silhouette Card

To make this card I first cut a piece of smooth white bristol board slightly smaller than an A2 card size.

Then I masked off a grid using Masking Magic cut into thin strips. I chose to divide my card front into 6 leaving a matching wider border at the top and bottom. To mask my wider border I used a repositionable tape and just made the border the width of the tape for both top and bottom and it saved me having to measure it and I knew that the border would be even and straight.


Once I had it all taped off, I used blending brushes and Distress Inks to ink each section a different colour. Is you can see I didn’t worry about getting it too smooth or perfect as I knew I would be stamping over them and I went heavier in the centre and blending the colour out lighter as I went on each colour.


Once I had each section coloured I moved on to stamping. I masked off each section as I worked on it and chose a stamp from the terrific Hero Arts Floral Silhouette stamp set. To mask these off I just used scraps of paper to extend beyond my Masking Magic strips to be sure I did not accidently stamp in another section.

After I was done, I removed all the Masking Magic. I just put the backing back on it so I could use the strips again for another card. You can get several uses out of them before they lose their tackiness I find.

To finish off the card I matted it all on some black cardstock and adhered it to my card blank. I cut my sentiment, smile out of both black and white using a couple of layers of the white Bristol to create some dimension. I adhered them slightly offsetting them on the black to form a shadow. I then used another smaller sub sentiment from an older Waffle Flower Stamp and Die set I have again cutting it out in both white and black and adhering them slightly offset to create a shadow effect.
