Daffodil Daydream and Masking!

Good morning!!  I have a fun Daffodil card for you this morning, and it's full of techniques!!  First, I embossed the daffodil image in White on Watercolor Paper.  I masked it off using a post it note.  Then, using Balming Blue ink and a blending brush, I added a layer of ink.  Then, without removing the daffodil mask, I used a stencil over the top to add the decorative background!!  Don't you just love the look of layering the ink?


I colored the daffodils using reinkers and my aqua painters.  Now for my favorite part:  Using the Amazing Thanks Dies, I cut out the "background" of the thanks right out of the watercolor paper!  I popped that up on mini dimensionals, then added the Thanks in Basic Black cardstock.  (the actual word die).  I love it!!  I hope you do, too!

Oh–I almost forgot–for a little sparkle, there is Wink of Stella on the Basic Black cardstock!

I've entered this in two challenges:  Just Add Ink:  Add Masking, and the As You See It Challenge Theme:  Spring Flowers!

  1. It does look fantastic, with the stencil background so snug behind the flower. Masking is such a great technique and you’ve used it well. Thanks so much for joining in our Spring Flowers theme at As You See It.
