Already time for the CAS Mix Up November Challenge: Masking. We also have 2 new Design Team Members on CAS Mix Up :-) Loll and Bonnie had the difficult job of choosing only 2 new members from the list of talented stampers from the Design Team Call last month.
Our new DT members are the very talented Julia from Create with Julia and Joanna from Jo-Jo's Spot. Be sure and go to the CAS Mix Up November Challenge to see their gorgeous masking cards and visit their blogs to leave them some love :-) We also have Linda S. from Lin's Craft Corner as our Guest Designer for November. Linda also has a beautiful masked card.
I used Stamping + Masking + my choice of Stenciling with Brushos and Die Cut Leaves
I just received a Dina Wakely Ranger Stencil: "Leafy" from Loll and just had to use it... right now! I tried a new (to me) masking technique using the smallest CUTplorations "Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Die". I cut a 4" x 5 1/4" layer from my Arches 140# Cold Press watercolor paper.
I placed my stencil on my paper, then the die, using 3M masking tape to mask my 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" stencil image. I then sprinkled orange, yellow and purple Brushos Powder over the stencil and spritzed with plenty of water. I carefully removed the masking tape, die and stencil all in one piece.
I LOVED the clean edges I got for my stenciled image. I let the piece air dry. I then added my die cut leaves using pop dots. I stamped my sentiment 3 times using my MISTI to get good coverage.
I added the sequins and ribbon for just a little bit of embellishment. I am very pleased with the results and will use this masking technique again.
You have until November 24th to join the fun at CAS Mix Up. Enjoy and Happy Masking..
