Masking and Background Stamping with Sentiments2 copy I’m still working on those thank you cards (see more HERE HERE HERE) and using sentiments for backgrounds.  I have a couple more ideas up my sleeve…are you interested in seeing more?

In this video tutorial, I pair making backgrounds with sentiments with the masking technique for a fun look.

Masking and Using Sentiments for Creating Backgrounds

Any piece of computer paper will work for making a mask.  Just die cut through the center to make a frame, add Two Way Glue around the edge, let it dry and it becomes a temporary adhesive.

Center it on your card layer and do your stamping and sponging to create a masked background.   I stamped the flowers inside the mask, but stamped the sentiment outside the mask to create more interest on this card.
