Camp Create Day 2: Magnificent Masking


I'm back for Day 2 of MFT Camp Create: Magnificent Masking!  I'm using some new stamps I got from Victorine Originals today....


I don't know why I love Alice in Wonderland images so much... but I do and when I found these stamps over at Victorine Originals I knew I must have some (preferrably all-but at least some) of them!  Here's how I created my background using masking (yes... I actually remembered to take a couple pics along the way!)


I started with a piece of white cardstock a little larger than what I knew I'd want... I like to have the option of cutting down the piece or diecutting it after I'm done.  I used some washi tape (I have plenty of it!) and placed it down in diagonal stripes on the paper.  Then I took my Milled Lavender Distress Ink and blended it in the open white areas.  When that was done, I peeled the tape off and tossed it.


Then I took some fresh washi and placed it the opposite way across my inked lines... I decided to alternate skinny and wide rows for the darker color and once it was inked and the washi was peeled off I was so happy I did... LOVE the look of it.  My last step was to splatter some water droplets over the whole thing and blot off the excess water to distress it just a tiny bit... you can see that in the finished photo...


Just love this White Rabbit stamp from Victorine Originals!  And that scalloped rectangle is from My Favorite Things... it's a set of varying sizes and I used the second largest here but cut it in vellum so as not to completely cover up my background masterpiece...lol!


Let's face it... I usually am, so I'm sure this card will come in handy fairly soon...lol!  The sentiment is available at Victorine Originals also and the banner was cut using my oh so frequently used CDD Flag Banner Dies...


I used a little bit of beautiful purple seam binding from  and my favorite fabric hearts from Fun Stampers Journey.

I'm joining in on the Victorine Originals Purple Challenge... it's not too late to play... you have about a day left and you don't have to use Victorine Originals stamps to play along!  And do be sure to check out MFT Camp Create... learning and creating!  Can't ask for anything more!  Shopping?  Well, you can do that too!...lol!
