Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing another way to mask, which is CAS Mix Up's November challenge.
This time I'm masking a stencil. This can stretch the use of your stencils and you will get a lot more mileage from them. To see what the full stencil looks like, click HERE to see a card I made a few months back.
I used a yellow watercolour spray to add a bit of texture for the background. I wanted to use this flower stencil, but it is large and has five flowers on it. So I masked off three of the flowers and just used two. I sponged the flowers with three shades of distress inks and the stems with one. Then I used my scissors to distress the edges of my main panel. My CAS Mix Up card has stamping, masking, stenciling, sponging, and distressing. :)
There are lots of ways to mask, and I hope you'll make a CAS Masked mixed media card and join our challenge!
