One Layer, One Ink

Hello there blog friends!  I have a couple more cards I made yesterday after watching PTI's Make It Monday video.  Sometimes I forget how much I like something- like masking for instance.  I ran my quarter inch eclipse masking tape all around each card.  I then die cut some to mask the border and sentiment.  I drew in my grid with pencil and a T square and went to down with my guidelines 1 stamps.  Stamps used here are guidelines 1 and framed out 2.  Ink is dark chocolate (original version).
Next I decided to get a little fancy.  I used the same technique as described above except that after I finished I came back in with two colors of stickles and my copic opaque white.  Opaque white is not a pen.  Its a little pot of paint.  I used a fine liner brush and colored all those little spots white.  And there you have it!  Thanks so much for stopping in today!

Love the outside border with the eclipse masking tape. Only masking I have ever done is with post-its and those do not work well for borders. Thanks for the tip that our LLS sells the eclipse masking tapes. I guess I never noticed them. Heck there are way too many good things there.

Michelle--these two, plus yesterdays--really wonderful. Now, I am itching to get those stamps, you are showing so many great cards and designs.

Like Joyce said, I want these stamps now that you've made these amazing cards with them.
