Clean & Simple Card Making (2) Day 2--Part 2, and ColourQ #174

I wanted to try one more technique that we learned this morning, and this week's ColourQ #174 colors were just what I needed for my card.  The technique is masking and reverse masking, as well as a simple faux embellishment.  I used a tiny dark pink rhinestone for the Raspberry Ripple, PTI Hibiscus Burst ink for the Primrose Petals, Memento Angel Pink Ink for the Pink Pirouette, Memento Rich Cocoa Ink for the Early Espresso, and Vintage Cream card stock for the Vanilla.

I die cut a heart out of a 4.25 x 5.5 " paper, right where I wanted my heart positioned on my card, used temporary adhesive to stick it to my card front, and sponged Memento Angel Pink within the heart shaped space.  Then, I removed that mask, covered the pink heart with the mask, and stamped Background Basics Circles across the card front.  Removed the heart mask, and I had my focal point. 

My faux embellisment is made just like Julie's, from a domed epoxy circle I found in my stash, adhered over a bit of stamped card stock.

Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Background Basics: Circles, Think Big Favorites, Lawn Fawn Belinda's Borders
Paper:  Vintage Cream
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa & Angel Pink, Hibiscus Burst
Other:  Domed Epoxy Circle, Rhinestone

Thanks for Visiting
