I bought these masks from Tim Holtz' collection a few weeks ago. I was so excited to see that he has come out with some smaller ones that are easier to use on cards (don't get me wrong, I've seen some great stuff done with the larger ones, smaller is just easier).
I stared out with a white card base. I placed the masks where I wanted them and then using my brayer, covered the card with purple ink. Then, I sponged on some darker purple ink in the corner with the masks. I made sure to show lighter and darker spots of the sponging giving more dimension. After the masks were removed, I added a sentiment in black and some doodling around the card. I love this way of finishing off a card (as you can see in a few samples HERE and HERE).
Supplies: Stamps - Spiral Bouquet (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Lavendar Lace, Elegant Eggplant (Stampin' Up!); Paper - Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Other - masks (Ranger), black marker (Zig), sponge.
Have you ever made a one layer card?? Link it up, I'd love to see it!!
