Happy July 4th, my stamping and crafting friends!!! Today for the “Technique Lovers Challenge” on the Splitcoaststampers website is a featured “Everything Old Is New Again” technique called Reverse Masking! Here is a tutorial for the technique. My Happy 4th of July – Courage card is submitted for the challenge.
Using the Stampin’ Up! (SU) Stars Dies, I cut a mask of the largest star. I laid the mask over my white card base and sponged SU Real Red Ink in the form of the mask; a star. Loving the old SU Classic Ink, Brilliant Blue, I decided to cover the image from the SU Courage Stamp Set (retired) and stamped it over the sponged red star. I then covered the sentiment with the same ink and stamped it below the image.
To give the appearance of fireworks, I sprinkled red and blue brushos around the card and then spritzed with water. This is a clean and simple card to make, and I hope you enjoy it.
Have a wonderful, fun, and safe 4th of July as we celebrate Independence Day! God bless the USA.
