Hello everyone! I am shocked to be able to tell you that today’s project is my 2,000th (yes two thousandth!!) blog post here at SP! Can you believe that? Well, it has been a long and wonderful journey running this blog and I couldn’t be happier with where we are going!! I thank you for visiting me, whether you are a new reader or a dedicated reader (some of you for years!). Stick with me, folks because a lot of fun is still to be had.
And today’s card is no exception :O)
On this card, I used a reverse masking technique as part of the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge. I was blog hopping and perusing some of my favorite blogs when I saw their video and I was so inspired, I jumped up from the computer and made this:
- For the Make it Monday challenge, you are required to use at least one Papertrey Ink supply. Well lucky for me, I didn’t pack up my FAVORITE ribbon of all time (love PTI’s saddle stitch, have it in almost every color) when I packed up the majority of my scrap room getting ready for our new place. I had already packed up all my stamps, most of my cardstock so I was limited to the ribbon I had kept out and the sparse supplies left on my desk.
- For the reverse masking, I used the SP and Company Rainboots stamp set and made them look patterned by using the Big Bold Background stamp
- The sentiment is also from the Rainboots stamp set and was stamped in black ink.
- I colored the boots in with Copics from iCopic.com: RV11 and RV29, then stamped the Big Bold Background using Melon Mambo classic ink from Stampin’ UP.
- I created a glow around the boots with Copics Y000 and Y00. Then I added the small strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock (Stampin’ UP) cut with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.
- The patterned paper is from the Echo Park Be Mine collection, called Airmail Stripe.
- The card base is Stampin’ UP Blushing Bride cardstock.
That is it for today. I hope your day is great! I will be packing some more boxes and getting ready for the move. . . two more weeks left.
