Midweek Magnolias - Masking Technique

Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Midweek Magnolias Design Team has a new challenge for you and this week and our theme is “Use the Masking Technique.” So I hope you join us this week for the challenge. Hop over to Midweek Magnolias for some awesome inspiration from the DT and leave some love on their blogs. When you play along with us you’ll have a chance to win a fabulous mystery prize from Magnolia Sweden.
My card this week features “Hiking Edwin” and I masked it with “Hiking Background.” I also used the “Autumn Oak Leaf and Acorn” and “Autumn Sunflowers” stamps for my embellishments. All of these are from the Turning Leaves Collection. I colored Edwin and the background with Copics and used them to create a watercolor sky.
My cardstock is from Bazzill and the DPs are from PTI’s Fall Prints and Patterns collection. I distressed the DPs with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink around the edges before matting them to the cardstock panels. I stamped a handful of leaves and acorns and colored them with Copics and added them to my card. The sunflowers are also colored with Copics and I put Ultra-Fine Flower Soft on the middle for dimension and texture. Finally, I tied Vintage Seam Binding from WOC into a bow to finish it off.
The inside of my card has repeating elements from the front with an open space for any message or sentiment.
Stamps – Magnolia
Cardstock – Bazzill
Dies – Spellbinders
Seam binding – WOC
Ink - Distress Ink, Memento

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges: 

Make It Monday – Linky Party, Anything Goes 

I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias. Happy crafting…
