One Layer Cards using MFT’s Seaside Seagulls/Card 2 of 3

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!

Below is my card video.  You can watch it here or on my YouTube channel in HD.  Thanks for visiting!
