Masking did all the work on this card. Isn’t it cool? I have been seeing lots of stationery with sentiments angled across the top. So I trimmed a post it note and placed it on the card base. And I didn’t remove the mask until the end.
For the background, I started by stamping Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain with Broken China distressing ink. Then I inked the background of the card with Broken China, Peeled Paint, and a bit of Vintage Photo. Then with Vintage Photo ink, I stamped Hero Arts Dictionary Greetings (the birthday version), just along the top and bottom of the card.
I set the whole card aside to dry. Once it was dry, I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment in Broken China ink followed with heat embossing. I did that so the sentiment would stand up to the background. The bicycle was also heat embossed.
hope that gives you some good inspiration to start your week off! :) Mint Motif sneak peeks start tomorrow!!!!! :) thanks for stopping by!
