Here is the fourth card design for my upcoming Christmas Stamp-A-Stack in two weeks. To find out more about this event, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.
I really like the reverse masking technique with this set. I stamped the three wise men stamp onto the card stock first. I punched out a circle from a Post It note, and put the negative of the circle onto the stamped piece of card stock. Then, I sponged Marina Mist ink around the edges of the circle opening, leaving the center white, and took of the Post-It note off. I really like the look it gives Bethlehem on the card. The lines you see around the base of the card were made by brushing the Concord Crush ink pad on it (direct to paper technique).
