It's Just in Case Thursday – the day where Patsy Waggoner (my Border Buddy) and I share a card we've CASED (copy and selectively edit) from one of our current publications. Today's card uses the Merry Moose Stamp Set and Moose Builder Punch from the Holiday Catalogue. When you purchase them together in a bundle you save 10%.
I CASED a card sketch from page 45 of the Annual Catalogue. The original card used the Enjoy Life Stamp Set. I kept the colours and the sketch but changed up the images.
The card uses the reverse masking technique. To achieve the look I cut out a circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies from watercolor paper. Then I cut a smaller circle from a scrap of paper using the Layering Circle Dies. I laid the open circle (negative) over the first circle (it's easier if you use temporary glue so the mask doesn't shift). You want to create a stamping area that is inside the larger circle and omits the outer part of the larger circle. Then I went ahead and added the watercolor wash and when dry stamped the words.
