This week's One Layer Wednesday is being hosted by Karen. The challenge is to use masking. Remember last week, the challenge was to use sponging?
I tend to confuse masking and sponging in my mind because I often do both together, like last week. So this week I decided to do masking with no sponging. Amazing how my mind works, isn't it? lol!
I masked a 1/2 inch strip across the front of the card and then stamped the Impress snowflake in stamped-off London Fog and versamark (so it wouldn't be completely colourless). I pulled off the mask and embossed the snowflake bits with iridescent embossing powder.
Then I scored each side of the masked strip and stamped Annabelle Stamps "Joy" in real red.
You will have noticed that I've photographed this card on a red background. And now you know my little secret about one layer cards (especially white one layer cards). I always think they look better with a coloured frame around them. Gasp!
Also, it's much easier for a camera (at least my camera and my limited photography and photo editing skills) to deal with high contrast images. Here's what the photo looked like on my normal white background:
So, you can see that I continue to struggle with photography, but I figure that the whole world struggles with it, otherwise there would be no Photoshop, right? lol!
