Just Add Ink #311....Masking!

Happy Friday to you!....Over at Just Add Ink this week we have a technique challenge happening, we want you to "JUST ADD MASKING".
I love playing with this technique and it can be achieved in such a variety of ways. I went with a basic method of die cutting an oval from the "Ovals Collection" and used temporary adhesive to hold it in place to create my mask.
Using my fave go to stamp set of "Botanical Blooms" along with "Botanicals for you" l stamped around the edge of the mask in Crisp Cantaloupe & Calypso Coral-Rose Red-Old Olive & Daffodil Delight...Then added the fine black sprays with the fine tip on my Basic Black marker.
Once l was happy with that, l removed the mask and stamped the sentiment from Watercolour Words in Basic Black, added some piercing and it was done...CAS!

Make sure you stop by the JAI blog and check out the rest of the design teams awesome masking ideas!
