Using Masks to Create Backgrounds

When I made this card, I didn’t intend to make a pun about using masks, but here it is! I was just playing with some pieces that I had stamped and cut out a few weeks ago. I wanted to play with my Decorative Masks and spritzing a colored background! I really wish you could see the card in person!

I made a video to also show you how to make this card and share some useful tips! A special thank you to Patty Bennet for the suggestion of using Stamparatus Plates to keep your work area mess free! (mostly mess free)

I did try this technique with Whisper White card stock, but it bled a bit.

Here is a close up of the card so you may be able to see the shimmer paint that is mixed in with the Stamping Spritzer. To make your bottle of color: pour rubbing alcohol about 3/4 of the way to the top of the bottle. Add 4-8 drops of your ink refill. You need more for lighter colors and less for darker colors. Then, you add a drop of Frost White Shimmer Paint in the spritzer. Shake really well!

Trust me-it shimmers!
