Easy Masking, Neon Ombre and a Deal


Aloha friends!  Niki G. here with a super easy way to do some quick masking.  Have you seen our latest challenge?  You could win a $25 gift certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store just by sharing your project with masking!

Ok on to today’s card…


To create the background I quickly inked up the Tiny Flowers and Dots using the newest Hero Arts neon ombre ink (neon chartreuse to blue).  This background stamp is currently a whopping $5!  It’s pretty, and fun, and for $5 it’s a deal!!  Hurry cause there’s only 1 left…good luck!

Then I swiped the neon ombre ink pad on a separate piece of cardstock that was die cut with a stitched rectangle die.  You’ll need to allow this to dry completely before doing this next step! I took the sentiment from the Hero Arts You’re So Kind set and stamped it with Versamark ink at the bottom of the swipes, then covered in Hero Arts White Embossing powder and heat set.  I then masked off the bottom of the stamp using painter’s tape to be able to just ink up the happy part.


I pressed the Versamark inkpad over and removed the tape.  Now only the word “happy” is inked and I can continue the process to make a Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday card!  A MISTI tool helps keep everything aligned.

Here’s a closeup…


I used fun foam to give that swiped panel some dimension from the card base.

So there ya have it!  Masking can be simple and fun!!  Hope you’ll join us.

Mahalo for stopping by!
