Reverse Masking

I was browsing through the July Stampin' Success magazine and in it was an article that featured Reverse Masking. I haven't done Reverse Masking in a very long time, so I thought I'd make something with my Text Boxed set from Papertrey Ink. If you don't know what Reverse Masking is, there is a wonderful tutorial here on SCS by the amazing Beate! In short, for this card, the flowers and brayered color was put "inside" the boxes by stamping the box on a scrap piece of paper and cutting out the inside. Then, lay your "mask" over top of the boxes you stamped on the actual project. The mask keeps everything inside the box. I used a Kaleidacolor ink pad in Caribbean Sea and a brayer for the color. The paper for the focal images is glossy cardstock. If you haven't given Reverse Masking a try, give it a go! You'll really like the finished project! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Text Boxed, Papertrey Ink; Ink- Kaleidacolor ink pad in Caribbean Sea, StazOn in Jet Black; Paper- DCWV lime and turquoise, glossy white cardstock; Accessories- ribbon from Michael's, small oval punch, paper piercer, brayer, Stardust Stickles.

Great colors!!! Did you put the stickles on the flower centers? They look sort of dimensional. Awesome.
