OLW95-Stars and Stripes

Love the One Layer Wednesday challenges.  This week's challenge is to create a one layer card containing at least one star and at least one stripe. 

Here's my contribution:

Masking 018

This was a quick and simple card to make using the Masking Technique.  Congratulations to me. I did it!  I was able to create this one layer card in just two tries! 

To create the masking, I simply cut up a Post-It-Note into 3-1/2" strips.  I laid it onto my Whisper White card base and then added more Post-It-Notes around the strips, basically masking the entire card base.

Masking 009

Once the card base was covered up, I removed the 1st strip and sponged on Pretty in Pink ink.

Masking 010

I replaced the 1st strip and removed the 2nd strip.  I then sponged on Certainly Celery ink.

Masking 005

Then it was time to remove the 3rd strip and sponge on some Bashful Blue ink.

Masking 007

I removed all the Post-It-Notes and stamped the sprinkling of stars and greeting using black ink. Easy peasy, done!

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Sprinkled Expressions

Ink: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Basic Black

Paper: Whisper White

Accessories: Post-It-Note, sponge

Happy Stampin'!
