Thursday Trend - Masking

Today I have a little layout to share with you that I created for the Pink Paislee blog, it's called 1.2.3. Whee! These pics are of Kati last summer in her bathing suit going down the slide...her expressions crack me up! She looked scared, but kept wanting to do it over and over again. ha
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!

Great lo and cards. What punch are you using on the pp in the cards? Thanks!

Your LO is adorable! :) I have yet to try masking. Lately I have been stuck in a rut and I find myself just sticking with the tried and true. Glimmer mists are at the top of my shopping list, so maybe I will break out of my comfort zone soon. lol! Absolutely LOVE the butterfly on the card! Sounds like a great kit!

Cassie, I have the lace punch by Fiskars and that is what I used on the spring card.

I adore that layout!! The masking is awesome and I love the idea of using the backing...I would just throw it away. Love the photos, too. Alex is just now getting a hang of going down the slide. Loves to go up the slide and down on his belly.
I see you are using a new punch on that adorable spring card, so cute. Love the gathered ribbon. OK, I just love it all.
