CTC360 – Hanging Around

Hasn’t the weather been crazy all around Australia lately? I really hope that you are all safe and well and ready for another week of CASEing the Catty. We have another blog hop for you from the design team and a challenge that we would love you to join in with.

This week we are CASEing a Masking Project, and anyone who knows me knows that I love decorative masks as they are a cost effective way to create amazing backgrounds (and now feature images with the latest Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks) to suite any colour scheme that you need. If you don’t have some DSP that matches your project, create your own with the decorative masks in your chosen colours.

As I was flipping through the catalogues looking for a project to case, I came across the project in the image above that was hiding away on page 115 and may have been missed as using a decorative mask. So I decided to case this one.

I started with a white card base and used the vine type mask from the Butterflies & Flowers Decorative Masks pack with some Shaded Spruce ink and a Blending Brush. This mask does move a little as it is only connected at the edges, so you’ll need to hold it down as you are brushing the ink on. Once I had finished applying ink all over, I removed the mask and without adding anymore ink, brushed lightly over the whole card front to give a pale green tinge all over.

The monkeys and the sentiment come from the Catch You Later stamp set and I coloured the monkeys in with Blends™. A fairly quick and simple card this week.

Next up on the hop this week showcasing masking is Rachel.

Do you have any decorative masks? What project will you case? We’d love to see what you come up with. Or will you take a twist on this challenge and look at a different type of masking project? Either way, please share your creation on our Facebook page.

Until next time, happy stamping
