Hey there! I used the masking technique with Sheet Music and Sheltering Tree to create this pair of sympathy cards:
I tore a piece of paper and then adhered it over the Whisper White layer with washi tape. I inked the Sheet Music stamp with Basic Gray ink, stamped it off on scrap paper before stamping over the masked white layer. Leaving the torn-paper mask on the layer, I used a Sponge Brayer to roll first Soft Sky and then Pear Pizzazz over the Sheet Music image. The Sponge Brayers contain two handles and four sponge rollers, allowing you to sponge with 4 different colors before rinsing any of them out with water. I keep my sponges stored in labeled baggies with the color they have been rolled in. At only $8 for four sponges and two handles, I can afford to dedicate the sponges!
After stamping and brayering, I removed the paper mask and then stamped the tree with Basic Black ink.
Inside I stamped a Thoughts & Prayers sentiment with Marina Mist ink and sponged the edges with Pear Pizzazz.
My second creation was constructed in the same manner.
I love the look of Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz brayered side by side!
I stamped the Sheltering Tree greeting stamped on a 3/4" wide banner strip.
I used more Thoughts and Prayers sentiments on the inside:
