The topic for the blog today was Trends and lately I've been seeing all these cool backgrounds that people are making themselves with mist and masks. I wanted to try it out, but only had one color of mist (green) and that wouldn't work for this layout. So...I decided to break out my stamping ink and use that instead. I peeled off the backing from the swirl chipboard and laid it on my layout, then rubbed the ink pad over the mask. When done, I added the chipboard swirl over the top! Very simple and I love the custom look it created! I was very surprised at how the brown blended in so well with the background paper. Trial and error is so much fun!
I am definitely going to be doing more masking in the future!
