One Layer Masked Ink Blending
Posted on March 16 2021
Hi! It's Lynnea! I decided to challenge myself today and create a one layer card! There are many techniques packed into this simple card and I love how it turned out!
I did a bit of stamping, masking, coloring, AND stenciling using a die cut on this card! A little bit of something for everyone! I started by stamping the "thanks" from the Lily Stamp Set onto my card front. I needed to create a few masks, so I used the Lily Die Set and die cut the "thanks" and the flower from LDRS Creative Stamp Masking Paper. I placed the mask over my sentiment and stamped the large floral image with Raven Hybrid Ink over the top then I colored in the flower with alcohol markers adding some white gel pen highlights.
Now it's time for the star of the show! I placed my die cut masks for the sentiment and the lily over the stamped images so that I could do some masked stenciling. I LOVE the Mosaic A2 Coverplate Die and decided to use that as a stencil, so I die cut it from heavy weight cardstock and positioned it over my colored card front and securing it with masking tape. You could use any color cardstock for your die cut stencil, but I chose to use white so that I could use the panel on a later card. I used blending brushes and blended Alloy Hybrid Ink over the top portion of the "stencil" and Pink Tutu Hybrid Ink over the bottom. I slowly peeled off the masking tape and removed my stencil and masks and voila! A super pretty one layer card!
I added a few clear gems here and there around my lily - which I think still qualifies as one layer! Haha! I hope you'll try this easy technique in your craft room! See you soon!
