Reverse Masking using Oh So Succulents

Reverse masking is a very interesting technique - the opposite of traditional masking.
An area of the card is masked with a piece of card stock that has been die cut, and the area within the die cut is coloured and stamped.

A template for this technique was made using the largest of the Labels Framelits to die cut the center. This template was adhered to the craft table with post it notes; the card front adhered underneath it also using post it notes.



Three colours were used:  Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive and Tip Top Taupe.  With the template in place the colours were sponged starting in the center with the lightest colour and working to the outside edges.

Various images from the stamp set were stamped with Black Memento, with the images being stamped over the edges of the template as well as within.

After the template was removed, a flower embellishment was made using the Succulent Framelits.  The Old Olive center of the flower was punched with the Owl Builder punch.  Some Old Olive succulents were also adhered on either side of the flower.

Liquid pearls (non SU) were applied to the center of each stamped flower and on the edges of both flower embellishments.

Tip Top Taupe ink was used to stamp the sentiment on a strip of Tip Top Taupe cardstock which was notched at one end and adhered to the card front with one end tucked under the flower.

An envelope accompanying the card was also stamped.

Stamp: Oh, So Succulent
Inks: Black Memento, Tip Top Taupe, Old Olive, Sweet Sugarplum
Papers: Sweet Sugar plum, Whisper White, Tip Top Taupe
Accessories: Succulent framelits, Labels framelits, Owl builder punch, liquid pearls (non SU)
