Make It Monday - Reverse Masking

I'm so glad I was able to make time to participate in this week's Make It Monday Challenge.

This week, the very talented Erin Lincoln demonstrated the Reverse Masking technique. Click here to watch her video.

I made a single layer card. I die-cut the Mat Stack 5 and used it to mask the middle of my card. I stamped Text Styles II in Smokey Shadow to create the background.

The floral image is from Four of a Kind and the sentiment is from the Think Big Favorites series.

I added some texture with the Canvas impression plate.  Here's a better look.

I had this idea in the back of my mind since Monday. I was surprised by how quickly my card came together.

Now go get crafty. I'd love to see what you can make using this technique.


  1. Gorgeous. So fresh and the colours are beautiful.
