Two-tone Baubles


One Layer Wednesday is being hosted by Karen this week, and the theme is:

create a card using a MASKING TECHNIQUE

This card had a double dose of masking.  I stamped the central bauble, then masked it while I stamped the outer baubles (although the left-hand bauble is pretty much clear of the central one - slight problem with hand-eye coordination there).

Then I used a negative mask so that the central bauble was exposed and everything else covered, and sponged it with Bundled Sage distress ink.  I then did the same to the left-hand bauble.  For the right-hand bauble, I replaced the original mask to cover the central bauble, then arranged the negative mask in place and sponged what was left showing.  The cord is drawn on with the same marker I used to colour the stamp.

And the challenge at Simon Says is Anything Goes.

The bauble stamp is Penny Black 2794F and Joy is from Hero Arts LL039 Holiday Word Borders

  1. I love how many times you said 'bauble' - are you in the UK? It's such a funny word lol! But there's nothing funny about how beautiful this is - wow- your baubles look 3D! Which is quite an accomplishment on a 1 layer card! (and thanks for the comment on my masking card; I was just about to take it down, because I'm not happy with it - I'll give it another go!)
