I love framing up my images–it helps bring the focus on them. For my second one layer card, I used a large mask to create a frame. I used Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper for this. I cut out an oval and placed negative mask onto my card front. I was then able to ink blend in the oval. Once I pulled up my mask, I had beautiful, crisp lines creating a frame.
But before I did my ink blending, I stamped all my images and used masks for them as well.
For my images I used Post-It Super Sticky Full Adhesive paper. Masks can help you add dimension to your card. For instance, I stamped the larger cloud first, masked it, and stamped the smaller cloud overlapping it a little bit. This gave the illusion that my second cloud was behind the first cloud and further off in the distance.
I decided to use Prismacolor pencils to color in my images. They are one layer card friendly–they don’t bleed through to the other side, unlike Copic Markers.
To add a little more interest to the card, I colored in the tips of the bird’s wings with hot pink. I thought this complimented the sentiment. Lol!
