This week's challenge at Just Add Ink, courtesy of Nikki, is to Just Add ... Masking.
I have used this technique in its simplest form. I die-cut a Deco Label (these framelits retire at the end of the month .. boo hoo!), and used temporary adhesive to secure a strip of cardstock across the middle. With the mask in place, I stamped various flowers from my neglected Petite Petals stamp set, using Sweet Sugarplum (one of the beautiful new In Colors, being released 1st June), Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black inks. I removed the strip of card, and stamped the sentiment in the masked-off area.
The spotty background paper is from the super-cute Playful Palette Designer Series Paper stack, being released on 1st June. I stamped and punched out a few Sweet Sugarplum flowers, adhered them to the outer edge of the die-cut panel, and painted the petals with clear Wink of Stella (which you should be able to see in the pic at the top of my post).
I can't link to the not-yet-released products in my online store yet (add them to your wishlist for 1st June!), but I have listed below the current Stampin' Up! products I used.
Make sure you check out the gorgeous creations of the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team.
