OWH - Masking with punches..


Hi,

Back to work now..boo! I did thoroughly enjoy the 3 day weekend.

I was thinking about simple but effective ideas for OWH, I happened to have a scalloped heart that I had punched on my desk and it gave me an idea...

My main photo today is one of the cards I made using my little idea..

I punched a scalloped square, adhered the scalloped heart in the middle of the square - using temp glue. I then took a fingertip ink dauber and inked around the heart - using it as a mask. I wasn't too bothered about my ink coverage, I think it looks better a bit patchy. I removed the heart and punched a smaller heart in contrasting paper and added a sentiment in the same colour ink.

Very easy to do and I think it would work with most punched shapes.

I made 6 cards in total - 2 of each sentiment in pink and blue. Here are the other 2 sentiments.

Masked Heart - Love You Very Much

Masked Heart - Thinking of You
My supplies were - Hero Art stamp (fuzzies), Lawn Fawn stamps (Love You Very Much), Bo Bunny stamp (thinking of you), Woodware heart, scalloped heart and scalloped square punches.Studio G inks and misc paper scraps. The card blanks were made using 100lb cover stock from Target - cut to A2 (US) and scored using the Martha Stewart board.

I will totally be trying this again with different shapes and different colour inks.
