A favourite masking layout

The Penny Black blog ends its technique week with cards featuring masking. I decided to use one of the layouts I often turn to, a masked and sponged vertical panel with a feature image extending beyond the masking. Here are a few other cards I have created using this layout Balloons, Delicate florals & Winter Sky. To create this card I sponged the sky first taking care to get lighter towards the bottom so that I could position a torn mask over most of the sky and sponge a hill in brown.

Make sure you visit the Penny Black Blog to see a range of cards using different masking techniques.


Stamps: Dreamy 40-102, Flourish Birthday 4071F (PB)
Inks: Memento Bahama Blue, Potter’s Clay & Rhubarb Stick and Versafine Onyx Black (Tsukineko)

    The sentiment looks great with this image and your sponging is beautiful – I love the intense colours.

    Yes, that is a somewhat familiar layout to visitors of your blog — but it always works! Love the vibrant colours.

    Heather did you know there’s a video advertisement between your card and the comment section? With this card, the ad is Smart Phone. With your Winter Sky card, the ad is Di
    Georgio Pizza. If you’re not getting paid for the advertising space and minutes, you should be. Those companies are both national and have huge advetising budgets.
