Ai Challenge 101, Masking

Hello and happy Thursday! It's Challenge 101 over at the Art Impressions Blog today, and the challenge is "Masking".  I haven't done any masking on a stamped image in quite some time so I was excited to try making a nice distressed background behind my stamped Eunice image, SKU# K1619.

I stamped my image onto Solar White cardstock, then re-inked my stamp and stamped on a large piece of post-it-note paper. I then fussy cut out the image out of the post-it-note paper and then placed it over the stamped image on the cardstock. Then I gently brushed tea dye distress ink to create a nice soft tea dye background.

I then trimmed my image and colored her in with Copic markers. It's a subtle background, when you just want to warm up the background a little.
Please stop by the Art Impressions Blog to see what the other Design Team members have done for this fun challenge. Play along with us won't you? You could win a $10.00 certificate for Art Impressions stamps. Thanks for stopping by.
