MIM: Masked Backgrounds

This weeks Make It Monday is all about creating a masked background. Click HERE for all the info and a video.

I used washi tape to create a frame around the card front and then used a few more strips of tape to create an area for the sentiment.

Ink blending is still a work in progress for me.  I just do not have the patience or saturated sponges to get a smooth blend line. (Patience grasshopper, patience). So I tried one more card which I kinda like!

Thanks for looking!

Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Hello......and welcome!

Today I'm sharing two cards I made for Papertrey's May blog hop. Click HERE to read all about the hop and how to join in on the fun!

This months inspiration photo was full of pastel Popsicles that screamed Summertime. Recently I was elbow deep in fresh strawberries straight from the farm so I used the strawberry from Fruit Fusion as the centerpiece of my Summertime fun card.

When I first caught a sneak of the inspiration piece, I had the idea to try sailboats with pastel masts so I thought I'd give that a go as well. The wave background is blended using the new stencils and three shades of blue. The sailboat is from Ahoy.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
