JAI 190 Just add masking

Hello there,
You know how things just stick in your head sometimes - well I knew I had seen a favourite blogger of mine - Betsy Veldman do a special masking technique. I chased up the memory for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. Why? Well cause it was a rather cool idea and this week the challenge is to Just Add Masking. You can find the link to Betsy's tutorial here (on Nicole Heady's blog) and here is my take on it.

One of the things I think is so interesting about this is how you can create so much depth and still have a single layer. Of course I couldn't resist adding a popped up flower to frame the sentiment. I also used some more traditional masking to add in the leaves on the front.

I'm pretty sure I'll revisit this technique. Thanks for visiting and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT for lots of masking inspiration!
