By The Tide Reverse Masking

002It was a bit chilly here in Colorado yesterday so I thought I needed something that made me think “WARM!  Our BIG snowstorm was kind of a bust but it did get cold.

This “warm” card was made using the “By The Tide” stamp set from the Spring Catalog.  I made this card at a team Shoebox Swap a few months ago.  We used the Reverse Masking technique on it.  We used one of the Oval Framelits and die cut an oval in a piece of card stock.  We laid it over the piece of Whisper White card stock and then sponged Marina Mist ink into the oval.  Then we stamped the seaweed into the sponged oval.  The final touch was to use the Occasions Paper Piercing Pack to pierce holes all around the sponged oval.

It’s not a difficult card but I do have to admit I messed it up big time the night we were making it.  Someone (and I won’t mention any names, Cindy) managed to sponge and pierce her oval right on the card front.  It did look fine but the Marina Mist border does add something to the card and brings out the sponging.

Have a warm day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
