OLW107- Masking


Welcome to another week for me to be hosting the OLW (One Layer Wednesday).  This week I am challenging you to:

create a card using a MASKING TECHNIQUE

I don't have any sympathy cards on hand and they are sometimes difficult to create at the last minute so here is what I came up with.  For my card, I picked a fern from my garden then laid it onto my cardstock.  I tried to flatten it out a bit then I sprayed using Mr. Huey's colour mists and added a few flecks for interest.  Last I stamped the sentiment from Stampin Up for a quick one layer card.

 Don’t forget about the Gratitude Campaign! See Susan’s blog for details.

OLW107 Rules

1. Create a one-layer card.  That is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed!
2. Make a card that incorporates masking in some way.   Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum and NO ADDITIONAL LAYERS of card stock.
3. Post your card online and link it to the InLinkz button underneath.  If you link to your blog, please link to the specific post, not your blog’s main page.
4. HAVE FUN! I am looking forward in seeing what you create!

Your fern image is so lovely, Karen. I remember spraying over ferns when I was designing my wedding invitations many long years ago.

I love this card-so creative. You have inspired me to give masking another go and enter this challenge. Just got back from a walk in the park abd kept checking the leaves to see if they were any good for masking!!
