Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means! I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! I am going to show you how to use your Decorative Masks! Also, I’ll show you how your can use your Build a Banner Masks too!!!
You know me and my love for the Ombre look (check out more here and here)! I just can’t get enough of it! I used my Build A Banner Polka Dot Mask for this one but you could use the Dots & Stripes Decorative Mask as well! Soft Sky, Marina Mist, and Night of Navy were the colors I sponged on with my Sponge Daubers (love)! I sponged a few rows of each and then when I went to the next darker color, I rubbed lightly over that last row of the lighter color to give it a blended look. The Happy Birthday is from the Remembering Your Birthday Stamp Set! I sponged the edges of the greeting as well and adhered that with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a 1-3/4 Circle Punched piece of Night of Navy! I ran the circle through the Big Shot with the Stripes Embossing Folder! For a little texture, I looped some Whisper White Baker’s Twine in there as well!
This one is very similar to the one above. I used my Sponge Daubers and the Hearts and Stars Decorative Mask Set! I layered that onto some Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey cardstock and added some Satin Stitched Ribbon in Lost Lagoon! I am really loving that ribbon and find myself reaching for it often! For the popped up stars, I used the small and medium stars from the Bright & Beautiful Stamp Set that is in the Holiday Mini Catalog! Of course, there is a Star Framelit so you don’t have to fussy cut those stars out! 🙂 Love it! You could do this in Red, White, & Blue or Navy and Silver would be fabulous too!
Of course, it is always easier, for me at least, to understand a technique when you see it in action. Here is a Video Tutorial for you see both the Ombre Background and Stars Decorative Mask.
