I was so inspired last week when I saw Kelly Rasmussen's Doily Masked Background Video over on the Hero Arts Blog. If you haven't seen it yet, I definitely recommend that you check it out!
Kelly did such a fabulous job at showing how to mask off pieces of white cardstock by using doilies, and then simply applying Distress Ink in order to form a beautiful background. I knew instantly, after watching the video, that I definitely wanted to try out the technique!
If you follow me on My Twitter Account, then you might recall that I posted this photo (below) of the three backgrounds that I created last night. There are a few minor flaws on them, but overall I was pretty happy with how they turned out:
Here's a quick close up of one of the cards. You can see that I ended up adding some embellishments (rhinestones, ribbon, pearls, etc.) along with a sweet sentiment to each of the cards.
And here are my final results.......
I had so much fun doing this technique. I sure hope that you all enjoyed my cards today. I'd love to hear what you think about them!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and for reading. Your comments are always so encouraging to me and very much appreciated. Hope you all have a Happy Thursday! =)
