JAI #190: Just Add Masking


Time for another Just Add Ink challenge.

This time it's my turn to set the challenge, and I chose masking.  For my card I chose reverse masking to achieve a 3 dimensional look.  You can find a tutorial on reverse masking here.

I chose three different shades of teal, from memory they were Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.  I started with Pool Party and sponged from the edges into the centre, leaving a small section in the middle unsponged.  I followed this with a layer of Coastal Cabana that was thinner than the Pool Party layer, and finally Bermuda Bay around the very edge.

Hopefully it makes the bauble look a bit rounded!  I then stamped the star in Bermuda Bay while the mask was still in place.

I really love this card - it's going to be hard to part with it a Christmas time!

What will you create for this challenge at Just Add Ink?

Bye for now,
